  • Recommended Wash down Pump

    with several manufacturers out there, which do you guys recommend? I do believe there are some that probably wont burn up without water flow.

    I've had the same Surflo Pro Blaster in my bilge for 7 years now and it's still doing well. I've replace the macerator with 3 different brands in that time and they're in the same harsh environment.

        I gave up on Jabsco, they are junk.

        For the washdown pump, I use a big Rule.

          I didn't even get two seasons out of the Sureflow I put on my boat. I went to a Rule bilge pump style pump. Sure the water pressure isn't as good as a pressurized system but its good enough to get by until I'm back at the dock.

            Mako224, I agree. I dont need a lot of pressure. Just enough to put water on the deck to clean up the blood. The dock is where the real cleaning gets done.

                Hello Tr91Mako231

                I use Shurflo Pro Blaster model 2088-534-944.

                Perfect for tough washdown applications, such as fish box, scaling, and anchor chain cleaning, these rugged self-priming pump deliver high lift, can run dry without damage, and wont overheat with extended use. Pump is ignition protected and switch is sealed against water damage.

                Marine fresh or salt water wash down installations. Other uses may include 12 VDC pressurized water systems. This pump may be used for general water transfer.

                  Id be interested if knowing which bulkhead mount fittings you are using for your wash down. I have the TH installed and this is the second time the nipple has broke. Im done with them. The Jacobs fittings look solid, but Im sticking with the Rule Pump.

                  What fittings do yall use?
