If you can get the rebuild kits to work.
I may be a complete moron with 10 thumbs but I went through 2 Jabsco 36800-1000 or similar model diaphragm pumps and 2 rebuild kits for each one without being able to revive either of them. This pump was installed as the bilge pump on our boat when we got it.
After 2 Jabsco units I'm now using a cheaper Rule pump that can be replaced for around $50 when it dies.
The PAR units may be better made and easier to repair then the regular Jabsco line as SD suggests.
