Water Pump Replacement

Our water pump in our new to us 2006 Classic 31' is leaking. looks like the gaskets. we are going to replace it completely.

Can someone suggest a good, quiet replacement?

Shur Flo revolution.
Inexpensive, quiet, usually a direct fit replacement.

Welcome to the forum Lynn!

FYI the new search function above in the blue box works great -- powered by Google to search this entire site -- "water pump quiet" results:

The "Water . . . Heaters" sub-forum also contains a list of topics which may help:

Good luck,

I replaced my Aguajet with the Shurflo Revolution 4008. I also added the Shurflo accumulator. The accumulator allows you to run a faucet at a trickle and not get pulsing water. When I installed them together and presurrized the first time the pump wouldn't stop running. I removed the accumulator temporarily and the water pump pressurized the stopped. When I connected the accumulator again the pump stop when reaching pressure. I was able to use the existing inline filter and the PEX screw on connector to the input side of the Shurflo. I purchased a couple of 90 deg connections to route the flexible hoses to/from the accumulator. I like this water pump so much I don't connect to water hookups any more, I just fill the water tank and use the pump.

I have the shurflo revolution. I was lead to believe it doesn't need the accumulator tank, but I found that it performed much better after adding the tank. I didn't like all the pulsing and the vibration from the faucet, and the tank basically eliminated that. The "water pump silencing kit" consisting of flexible hoses to bridge the space between the pump and the plumbing is worthwhile to dampen the noise.

I don't know what quiet is as I have this pump but have never compared it to another, so I don't know.

I just bought the Shurflo 4048 High Flow water pump. The 4008 is 3 gpm at 55 psi, the 4048 High Flow is 4 gpm at 55 psi.

The 4048 was a direct replacement for the Shurflo 4900-0201 (it was 4 gpm) that was in my trailer. Thats why I chose the high flow.

Hope this helps.
