Fresh Water Pump Recommendations - to many options...

Postby amanphoto » August 8th, 2018, 12:32 pm

I'm looking for a replacement fresh water pump for my Mariner 350. My current pump is still operational but it is getting nosier and nosier. Especially as the fresh water holding tank nears empty. I would like to replace it with a more robust and quieter pump. I will still intend on using my faulty water pump for winterization of my fresh water system via the city water connection. That being said, I'm looking for a pump to service 3 faucets and a shower.

My current pump is a ShurFlo diaphragm pump model 2088-423-344 (2.8 GPM & 45 psi). It's from 2003, and it's held up fairly well over the past 15 years. Technology has changed and I'm sure there is something better out there.

But what? All the reviews I read say this pump is noisier or that pump only lasted one year then seized up. With out buying 20 different pumps installing them and trying them out I don't what to buy. I relying on your experience to recommend a quality replacement pump that will last another 15 years or do they not make them the way the use to?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Just installed a Jabsco. Much quieter and is working great. Did it 4 weeks ago on our 1999 Mariner
