"the two pump chambers are separated by the motor itself and share no connections any cross contamination cannot be within the pump itself."
EXACTLY! That's why I'm seeking help.
No possibility of "breakdown of the filter screen material" as it's a new filter, installed w/ the pump, this month. Living at anchor in the West Indies, "contamination of the raw water" is unlikely, especially considering we've been in many places since installation.
Thanks though.

Any ideas? Thanks.
