Water pressure systems

I need to replace my belt driven PAR water pump. Now available only on special order (at $500), I'm wondering if one of the newer water pressure pumps (ShurFlo, Jabsco, West) would do the job? I have a 48' boat with 3 faucets....the previous pump was 40PSI and 4.0GPM. I would need one with a pressure valve. Any suggestions??

Re: Water pressure systems

I can't tell you over the years how many times I've rebuilt that pump....The bolt holes in the bakerlite housing no longer hold the bolts thus I can't tighten enough. My bilge and sump pumps are the same Par pumps so I'll use my water pump parts as spares. I was hoping these new style pumps would do the job.
