Water Pump Suggestions

Hi Guys,
I am trying to decide which of the Shurflo water pumps to purchase for my '31 foot 1970 Sovereign. The "Smart Sensor" 4.0 and 5.7 are recommended for "larger RV's" and cost $144 and $169.25 respectively. But the 2093 "Whisper King" is only $84.50. Any suggestions? Also, will I still need a water pressure regulator like the original system had?
Thanks. Bill Schultz

The electronic controlled pumps are nice enough, but I don't find any compelling reason to have one vs. the less expensive ones. I have a friend who put one in his 31' and neither he nor I was overly impressed. They can be a bit quieter. They have a higher flow rate, if you are using more than one faucet at a time, which I find unusual.

The water pressure regulator is only used on the city water input, and had nothing to do with the pump inside the trailer. Yes, you still need it on the city input.

Whisper King is what I always install. That price you got is pretty good. Only about 6% above wholesale. Very honest mark up. Everyone has to eat...

Water Pump Suggestions

Hi Guys!
Thanks for the feedback. I'll do some more research on this issue. The prices I quoted were from Boating Supplies, RV Equipment, Fishing & Crabbing Gear.
Thanks, Bill
