Whale Gusher Titan Manual Bilge Pump

Dear cruisers,

well, it was operable last weekend and doesn't want to work this weekend. Pulled it apart, checked componentry etc.

it seems the flat on the 'seat' within the pump does not want to 'sit' .... does anyone know how long these should last in a saltwater environment?

Thanks

Whale recommends replacing the diaphragm every 3 years. Mine has been going fine for a lot longer than that.

They often do not prime without regular use. The flapper valve do not seal tight enough. I have poured water into the hull outlet and gotten the the valves working ... the pump started. They thrive on regular use.
