The biggest challenge for installation was planning and installing the thru-hull fitting and running wiring from the pump to the switch. For the thru hull you really want an inline valve in case you ever have a problem with the pump. That said, the pump part of the project was simple.

I was totally satisfied with the unit until it failed. I only bought it 5 months ago but it has had a lot of use. In my opinion there is a design flaw in the unit otherwise it would get a top rating from me. Here I am a long ways away from Fl. where I bought it (now in the South Pacific) and the unit has failed. I took it apart and found that where the pump ossilating bearing assembly failed. The bearing is pressed into an aluminum part and it should have been fixed in more solidly because the oscillation that causes pumping also puts a lot of stress between the bearing and the cast aluminum piece that it is pressed into. As it comes loose the aluminum begins to wear a little at a time producing aluminum oxide which is an abrasive which then accellerates the wear even more. There needs to be a correction to the design before I would recommend this unit to anyone. Otherwise performance, noise, power consumption, standby bypassing and all of the rest of its features are really good. Still needs to fix this design flaw because it is not just my unit. In my opinion all of the units will likely fail the same way as mine has.

          This pump never gave much pressure, but it was at the end of the season so we didn't address the issue. Now it doesn't give ANY flow.

                I have purchased four of these in the past ten years. I only get one or two years of use. The pump installs easily, great pressure, but.... If you forget to run fresh water through it after it's daily saltwater use it corrodes easily and quickly. The corrosion issue is the only complaint that I have.

                  Comments about PAR-Max Washdown Kits:

                  I installed this pump on my boat 2 seasons ago. I only use it sporadically, and when I went to winterize it this year, the pump wouldn't run at all until I tapped it with a hammer. Now it won't prime or run at all, leaks from the bottom, and pops the 12 volt breaker as soon as you turn it on. This pump was mounted high up in a dry part of the forward bilge.

                    Used for wash down and bait-well.
                    Quick delivery, installed with out much effort, if your replacing an existing pump.
                    Don't forget a inline fuse.

                              The mount system works ok but it could be better. The 4GPM is plenty of pressure and works good for the quick rinse down. Take the time to flush it out with freshwater at the end of the day.
