I have an 11 year old Palomino pop-up with a water tank on board and the sink has this J&C manual pump (with tank and city hook up)
It does not work well. I am on my second unit, and third pump handle. It leaks around the handle gasket and I would like a better solution. The City water side works well.
I would like to find a better quality hand pump. I have done some shopping, but I am unsure of the best solution.
This unit at least "looks stronger" Faucet and Hand Pumps : Attwood Marine
It also comes in a 3 way electric model that would drive a water pump.
Any comments on the Attwood model?
I need something with a similar or slightly larger diameter than what I have so it would fit in the counter.
I looked at this unit RV Faucets - SHURflo
in combination with a pump, but I would have to drill a separate hole and mount it next the the original. Kinda messy looking. Also, I would lose manual pumping.
As for pumps I first thought a demand pump would be good but then wondered if switch activated pump would be safer. Safer as in, if the hand pump started leaking like my current unit, the constant pressure would create a continuous leak.
What experience do others have?
Has anyone connected a demand pump to the "city" side connection of a J&C pump? That might work.
Thanks for the advice.
