Fred, I have a Flo-jet 4305-500. Have been running it for 4-5 years as a 
live aboard. Was told it was a superior pump to the Jabsco units. FWIW.

Hi, all — I tracked down a leak in my potable water system last weekend to an 
apparent split or leak in the diaphragm on the belt-driven (probably original…) 
pressure water pump on my LF38.  I could probably find a parts kit for this 
pump; but given its age, I’m thinking about replacing it with a new pump.  I’ve 
been looking at the Jabsco PAR-MAX line, specifically the PAR-MAX 2.9 or the 
PAR-MAX Plus 4.0.  Anybody have other suggestions for me?  I don’t want a 
super-quiet pump, as I want to be able to hear it run, especially when tanks go 
dry; but I’d like something that hammers less than the original pump.
