I recently installed the Jabsco Par Max 4 water pump to replace an existing pump that was gradually losing pressure and flow rate. The Par Max 4 has a higher flow rating that my previous pump, and I tested it by turning on both showers and the Galley sink at the same time. I got good flow and pressure at all of these outlets simultaneously.

I have read the other reviews stating that their are problems with this pump blowing fuses after one or two years of service, so will watch for that problem and note it if it occurs.

        Comments about Jabsco PAR Max Freshwater Pumps:

        Pump worked fine. One day it wouldn't turn on. On troubleshooting, I found the armature seized. The rubber diaphragm leaked/tore at one of the screw holes and let water into the front bearing.

        Couple hundred dollars out the window.

            Comments about PAR Max Freshwater Pumps:

            I fashioned a vertical mounting post so that the pump motor is above the pump housing. This should keep the motor high and dry when the pump fails; which eventually they all do.

            This pump has been working flawlessly for 3 years now, providing water at 45 PSI for 3 fixtures, at my cottage. We bought it here, and I am back for a second one. We run the Par-MAX 4 Water Pump from a bank of 6 deep-discharge 12V marine batteries, which are recharged by solar panels. Highly recommended!
