My advice is that you do not buy this pump.
I have two of these on our 2009 built Catamaran
. The originals built then were probably ok. In May this year I purchased a service
kit for the port side pump because the studs holding it together had failed. A few days after that one of the studs of the Starboard unit failed and I found half of the stud laying in the bilge
. To Jabscos credit they sent me some replacement studs.
In spite of the many bad reports of similar failures I purchased a new unit in July to carry as a spare prior to a 2000 mile round trip to Nova Scotia
. I did not want the hassle of fitting a unit with different mountings while on passage
in case one of the pumps failed. In early September I replaced the port unit with the new spare I had purchased. A few days ago I found half of the stud of the new unit laying in the bilge
. It had lasted less than 3 months. Still under warranty it will go back for a refund and not a replacement of the same Jabsco
My guess is that the manufacturer of the pumps has down graded the quality of the material used to make the studs to make a fee extra cents profit on each pump. Their few extra cents profit costs us a major hassle and any $$$$.
Avoid this pump until Jabsco
make the stud out of stainless steel
or better material.
