I really like the new variable speed Shureflos. The AS had a flowjet in it as OEM and It failed after little use. Ive had my sureflo for 2 years and it has been flawless.

Note: Above is for reference only. I have no experience with any of these pumps, and other brands and sources may better fit your needs and wallet.

I replaced ours with a Sureflo WhisperKing, it's so quiet I wasn't sue it was working at first.
Very straight forward change.

What gallons per minute spec should be used? I see the Whisperking is 2 gal/min. Is that enough or should we look for 3 or 4 gal/min. Maybe the higher pressure models are noisier.
