Sailboats Fresh Water System?
I was working on putting in new waterlines over the weekend since I am not sure the age of the current ones but they look pretty old and nasty.
I thought the water pump seemed loud so after further investigation its not what I expected to see. Its a Jacbson pump, but it has a motor with small rubber belt that drives a piston like arm up and down to pump a rubber diaphrame. I was expecting to see more of a RV style pump with a line in and out and 2 wires. The pump label says its 3 gpm. Should I swith the pump out for a simpler style RV?
Also the Line coming out of the bottom of the water tank goes to a manual foot pump 1st then to the electric pump what is the reason for this? And on the out line from the electric pump and is what looks like a inline check valve. reason for this?
