Subject: Re: Where best to check my Westy water system?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="UTF-8"
On a road trip, some years ago, I recall attempting to "fix" (lubricate) my
NON submersible pump. It worked for a little while longer but failed soon
enough. I have no idea if installing a pump under the sink is easily
feasible for Westies with in tank pumps but the "Nautilus" Sureflo pump I
installed in 2009 has been quite reliable for what it's worth. Draws more
current though. Image showing stock pump and Sureflo
