    Comments about Whale Pumps Gusher 10 Pump:

    This came with my boat. Over the past twenty years I have replaced it at least two or three times. Expensive and impossible to rebuild as the internal parts also corrode. Just came back from trying to bring it back to life last night - this one is only two years old.

        Comments about Whale Pumps Gusher 10 Pump:

        This is a high maintenance, non-performing pump that is useless in salt water. I've spent more time repairing it than actually pumping with it. It blocks too easily from small bits of dirt in the bilge. It corrodes terribly and loses all suction. I totally rebuilt this pump down to bare metal, primed and repainted, replaced all parts and it STILL failed after less than an hour of use.

          This worked great initially but after a few years the Al corroded underneath the epoxy. When that happened the valves wouldn't seat and it stopped working. There was white aluminum oxide all over it.
