When installing the Jabsco service
kit to my Jabsco
Mascerator pump I noticed that the bolts that hold it together were very corroded. The service
kit came with only two new bolts, so I had to leave two still in the pump. The original bolts failed soon after fitting the service kit.
I thought I should just buy a new one. When looking at the reviews
of the Jabsco 12v Mascerator Pump on the West Marine
Site, 95% of reviewers rubbished it saying that the bolts that hold it together corrode and fail very quickly and would not recommend the pump at all.
Can anyone recommend a good/best alternative. I need 12volt, 5 foot lift
, 1.5" inlet and 1" outlet, which seems pretty much the standard for these types of units. I can see alternatives in the Trac T10069, and Johnson 10-24453-01. Both less expensive than the Jabsco. Has anyone had good reliable service for 3 plus years from these or other pumps.
Thanks for your replies.
