I replaced a Par pump which was leaking. The pump provides water to the galley and head on our Beneteau 36CC.
The West Marine pump was easy to install because I was able to use the existing plumbing and electric wiring.
I did have to drill two holes to mount the pump because only two out of four lined up.

The pump looks about as solid as the Shurflo it replaces. There is no good reason why these nearly identical plumps don't have the same mounting holes, though. Boaters drill enough holes in things, this is a place where a little planning by WestMarine would have made installation even simpler.

Also, while the pump advertises adequate pressure, it is too weak to push water through the end-of-faucet Brita filter that the Shurflo managed without difficulty (well, until it died at the tender age of 3).

Pros

  • Corrosion Resistant
  • Installs Easily
  • Quiet
  • Water Efficient

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Fresh water at sea.... I love it!!!

    Comments about West Marine Freshwater System Pump, 3GPM:

    I use it often to wash my hands in the sink in my galley. I love the fact that I don't hear it run, it was very easy to install and it gives me trouble free fresh water on my boat whenever I need it. Very happy with this purchase and I wouldn't highly recommend it to anybody. Thank you West Marine.

    Best Uses

      Comments about West Marine Freshwater System Pump, 3GPM:

      Supply's adequate water pressure and flow for kitchen sink and shower. It's loud so adding extra padding on the mount would be helpful.
      I dislike then pulsating pressure regulation but it's not a deal breaker.

          The quick connect design for the water input and output made installation super easy. Operation is quiet and produces a strong flow when both faucets are opened.

              We live aboard and use the pump several tes daily. It's working fine and cost less than the Par replacement.

                  Thanks to your employees of Anacortes, WA for their fast assistance. They were wonderful and took the newly replaced and failed pump from West Marine Gig Harbor, WA with another pump from their inventory.
