Hi all, last weekend while brushing my teeth I noticed that the sump pump seemed to be noisy and ran for what seemed like for ever. I pulled up the carpet and the floor cover. First thing I noticed was water
in the bilge
where there never has been before. So I turned the basin tap on and watched what happened. The sump filled faster than the pump was emptying.
I disconnected the out let and the water
being pumped out was very low so I removed the pump for a better look.
On opening up the pump (Jabsco 2.9GPM) I noticed that the orifices/valves were full of hair, fluff and stuff I don't really want know what it was.
I cleaned it all up and reinstalled and it was able to keep up.
I am wondering if this is the correct type of pump for this purpose as it seems to be the same type as the fresh water pressure pump for the boat only this has an accumulator.
