Not having purchased a "kit" but only specific parts as necessary, I don't know whether the Kit includes a replacement Pulse Damper but, if not, it should. We also have two of these pumps and I have found that the deterioration of the Pulse Dampers and releated seepage around the seal of the base plate can be an issue. I have also found that replacing the 40PSI pressure switch with the 20PSI switch can make a difference in the endurance of the pump and pressure switches without an appreciable impact on the pump's performance or delivery at the fixtures.


"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
