Bought this pump brought it home had it hooked up in 20 minutes, primes quick and has excellent water pressure compared to higher priced pumps! Shoots a 20ft + stream can't wait to actually put it to use on some fish blood and anchor mud! Only downfall is it should of came with toggle switch and suction hose since it is a "kit'

I purchased and installed this pump with some other upgrades during my last drydock. The kit was mostly complete - minus a deck fitting and hose.

Worked great for the first fishing trip, blasted blood off the deck pretty well. The hose ends already show corrosion, and during its second fishing trip, it stopped pumping. Still had power, and jumping the pressure switch showed that wasnt the problem either.

Hopefully this one slipped through QC, so I'll swap it out and try another. My PARMAX freshwater pump is still working fine, but it's got life a little easier than this saltwater pump does.

            Comments about 4.0 Washdown Pump Kit:

            The unit was very easy to install, great price, and I liked that it had everything I needed including the hose. However, even though I've only had it for 6 months and about 65 hours of boating, it is very unreliable. When I switch it on I never know if it will work or not - sometimes it will run for a few short bursts but then will shut down. 10-15 minutes later it might work again, or might not. May have to take it back in for a replacement.

                Easy to install the pump and the hose connections snap onto the side of the pump making it easy to take in and out. Also provides good access to the filter screen.

                                  Used this product to replace a 10 year old washdown pump in my boat. The kit had everything I needed. The 4 screw holes even lined up. Increased the gpm and psi. So far works great and is a real value on sale!
