I have the Jabsco Par-Max 2.9. Installed 6 months ago when our older pump
I've been happy with it. Works well and the install was easy.

It's about as noisy as our previous pump. Mounted under the galley sink,
there's no risk of not hearing it if it's cycling or running continuously
while onboard.

I'm happy with 2.9 gph too. Our old pump was 1.6 gph. The new one doesn't
seem much faster though, which is good (I was worried 2.9 gph was too
high), because we try to use water very sparingly (carry 29g which lasts us
7-8 days).
