Im about to redo the whole freshwater system in my Pearson. I've got the tank under the settee cleaned out so i can use it again and ive got an 11 tank under the cockpit that is plumbed to the foot pump in the galley only. My boat is at anchor and will be staying there, so im wondering should i move to a pressure system or keep my foot pumps. So far ive only got one in the galley. I had planed to install one in the head also. For my hot water ive got one of those camping hot water heaters. It doesnt come inside the cabin, it sets on the deck right outside of the hatch over the head.

If i go with a pressure system i will use PEX for the plumbing. Unless i find a propane hot water heater that i like and can install safely i will stick to my little camping heater. I know that i will need a pump, but do i need an acumlator?
