I need a new water pump! I'm replacing a lot of the old systems on board before we take off cruising in the spring and I want to put in a new water pump, we have two outlets, a third if I decide to hook up the shower. Sink in the head, sink in the galley and shower in the head. I'm not sold on the shower, I think I'll stick to a solar shower.....don't have to worry about the shower sump and don't really like taxing my fresh water supply all that much -- so unless the cost difference is negligible I'd like to stick to a simple pump for two outlets. The pump will be pretty close (within 6 - 8 feet) of both outlets. The original pump moves the water all the way back through to the hot water heater (one of the propane ones that likes to blow boats up) and I'm going to plumb straight to the sinks. Any thoughts on a particular brand that is fairly inexpensive and reliable? I will also be installing a whale gusher foot pump as a backup (might end up using it more than the electric pump while cruising)

Thoughts?

Thanks!

I've had good luck with Jabsco. Since you are doing the replacement, you may want to look into the new variable speed pumps. They are supposed to be much quiter than the older versions. Although we have never had problems with our pump, it is very loud.
