My "Flojet" water pump just gave out after 11 months of use. I am not near my dealer for warranty service, so I'll just bite the bullet and buy a new one. Any suggestions on brands for a "quality" water pump. It seems the manufacturers use whatever is cheapest.

I'd say the Aquajet. I put one on one of our last coaches, it worked great. I tried a Shurflo quiet pump on our last one, and it was no where near as good, either in the quiet or flow dept. Our present coach came with an AquaJet standard. Can't beat it, IMO. Not everyone carries them - RVUpgrades does.

I put the Shurflo SmartSensor 5.7 pump on mine. It's a variable flow pump versus constant flow so you don't have the pulsing. It is quieter than the standard piston pumps, but only if you mount it in a sound deadening mode. The water coming out goes through a flex hose to eliminate noise and it will deliver plenty of water for showers. Do a search on this and you'll find lots of satisfied owners.

Shurflo SmartSensor 5.7 - VERY NICE!!!

It'll be even better when I reinstall it according to the directions in the box.

The technician did the best he could. I didn't know it was installed wrong until I joined IRV2.
Should be even quieter in the near future.

Fla2RI, I agree and also use the Shurflo 5.7. Replaced smaller one. Just like home pressure. Nice.
With that said, why not use the 800# and call the manufacturer and have them replace it under warranty for you. You shouldn't have to pay out of pocket for something under warranty. Right?

Do not use one with a Shurflo 5.7 because of the pressure senser. Infact its not needed with this pump. You can use with any other pump for better flow. ---"007"

I replaced the factory pump with a SHURflo 5.7 Extreme pump a week or two ago. What a great pump! We can't hear it inside the rig, it delivers about twice the flow as the old pump, and it doesn't pulse at any flow rate. I did mount it in accordance with the instructions.

I had the SHURflo 5.7 installed when the coach was new and we are very pleased with its performance. I took Floyds advise and removed the water filter in the water compartment. Now we have about the same water pressure as our home. We don't need the filter as we always bring or buy bottled water for drinking and cooking.
