Upgrade Water Pump to Remco 55Aquajet-ARV

Has anyone with a late model Dutch Star upgraded their water pump to this make and model? If so, is your Oasis able to continue to deliver constant hot water? This is quite a powerful pump and I'm concerned that the Oasis might not be able to keep up with it.

Thanks!

That is an interesting question and one I hadn't thought of when upgrading our pump.
We upgraded to the AES model (the ARV is even more powerful). The AES is quieter than the factory pump and seems to work very well. I have not noticed any adverse effect on hot water flow through the Oasis.

Why did you choose the AES over the ARV?

Did you add a relay or upgrade the factory 10A pump controller? With the AES 10A the controller is maxed out, increasing the probability of failure.

I believe you'd only be maxed out with the ARV not the AES but I'm not 100% sure.

I believe this is correct. As I recall, the ARV uses more power, puts out more pressure and volume. The ARV probably would have been great but we didn't need all that.

We installed the new pump as we prepare to install a whole coach RO water filter system. The RO system requires us to always operate using the fresh water pump and never using "city" water pressure. The factory installed pump didn't seem up to the task of constant everyday use so we switched it out to the AES.

The changeout is pretty much "plug and play".

You are really going to like the whole house RO system.

Not true. The ARV works fine on a 10A Intellitec controller.
