Fresh Water Pump

Would I be safe with this water pump? The 50 psi shutoff scares me . I seem to remember that the system in the PA is only good to 45psi?/ 2 sinks,toilet, shower/tub. The one that is currently in the MH is pretty darn loud.
and it doesn't have a accumulator tank.
I also am not sure about the "snap-in port fittings" currently use Hose clamp's so I would then have to change those ends?

"Triplex Water Pump
Self-priming, dry running, soft noise, absorbing mounts, snap-in port fittings, corrosion resistant materials, smooth operation without accumulator tank. Built-in Pulsation Eliminator. Flow: 2.9 GPM with 50 psi shut-off. 12 Volts DC 7 Amps."

We replaced our pump the 5er with a 50 psi variable speed pump. Works like expected. No issues with water leaks but that means nothing as to what your experience would be.

With the variable speed it was quieter. Instructions say no accumulator with it. Also could get reasonable pressure when two taps were open.

I have a pump with the snap in port fittings that I use as a transfer pump for fresh water. I use it a couple times a week for about two years now, every time I use it I connect and disconnect the fittings and have never had a leak. I think it's the same pump your looking at, I have let it run dry several times without any problems. In my opinion it's a good product for the cost.
