The Aquajet RV pump employs state-of-the-art electronics to automatically control motor speed – the pump actually adjusts its speed as you open and close water fixtures. Aquajet’s soft start feature eliminates annoying rapid cycling, and its exclusive 5-valve design can deliver twice the flow and pressure of conventional RV industry pumps. Greater flow – The Aquajet automatically overcomes pressure drops typically caused when multiple fixtures operate at the same time. Aquajet’s patented 5-chamber design displaces substantially more water per motor revolution than typical 3 and 4-chamber models currently used in the RV industry, making it one of the highest-flow diaphragm pumps available. Positive shut-off at 75-85 psi, to keep up with today’s sophisticated filtration systems and extensive plumbing systems. Silent operation – At performance levels similar to competitive pumps, the Aquajet will be as much as 90 percentage quieter, due to slower speed and superior hydraulic energy transmission. Smoother flow – Aquajet’s patented variable speed controllers, with additional “smart” features, eliminate all rapid cycling within normal flow ranges. The innovative 5-chamber construction, including the patented screw-free diaphragm, minimizes pulsation found in other pumps. Longer switch life – Electronic control circuits and integral pressure switch minimize switch arcing during starts and stops. Easy installation – Universal mounting option allows easy retrofits for virtual plug-and-play performance. Fittings – Pump includes 2 quick connect fittings with 1/2 Inch male thread size to fit standard pump filter and other industry standards. Safety features – The Aquajet includes valuable safety features not found on other pumps, including low voltage protection (to protect the pump from weakened battery power conditions) and a maximum pressure bypass (to protect the coach’s plumbing system from excessive pressurization). 55 Aquajet ARV, 10 Ampere Water Pump.

Ease of installing.Recieved quickly, a installed with ease.

Pump short cyclesInstalled this pump 9 months ago. Pump was purchased because it is supposed to be variable flow, and is not supposed to short-cycle. Replaced OEM Shurfow pump because it short-cycled. New pump continuesto short cycle with no reduction in noise. It was, however, easy to install. Does not operate as advertised. Not worth the money.

Broken upon deliveryMy pump also arrived in a flimsy damaged box without any packing materials around pump. It wasn’t properly packaged to prevent damage during shipment. I made the mistake of failing to check it for damage when I received it and didn’t install it until today. I bought it last October. The retainer slide on the inlet post is broken, preventing the hose adapter from securely seating in the pump. Pump is working but water pressure is weak as I suspect it’s pulling air from the intake port. You’d think they’d ship this product using better packing.

This is a high volume pump and requires adequate sized wiring. Do not use with a surge tank.This pump delivers water with minimal pulsing without a surge tank (actually it can’t be used with a surge tank) regardless of demand. Flow rates is as advertised and the pump is quiet.

This pump is like an OEM RV pump on steroids!Higher pressure/flow than average RV pumps. I like it better because it reacts faster and smoother to changes in flow/pressure due to faucets opening and closing at random. You should be aware that it does maintain a much higher static pressure (65psi to as much as 80-90 PSI) than most OEM pumps (45-55 PSI) so you need to make sure your plumbing is up to par and won’t leak.One of the main things in their marketing that attracted me to buy this was they stated is was a variable speed pump. I was hoping that it would sound a lot smoother and make that common ratcheting type sound, but that is not the case. it still pretty makes the same kind of sound – just variable speed. It not smooth and continuous. I’m OK with that. It is a little quieter and faster to recover when a tap is opened. If you want to reduce noise (on any RV pump) use flexible supply hoses in and out of the pump with one loop in the line to prevent transmission of the pump vibrations to the hard piping in the RV. Also, set the pump loose on top of some soft cushion material like fiberglass insulation or bubble wrap, to reduce vibration to the floor.I like this pump for the above reasons and would recommend it if you wish to have better pressure/flow and recovery with just a tad less noise.
Good pump & worked as expected!We had a predecessor model/version to this same pump that had a MFG date of 2010.We bought this one as a direct replacement, and it worked as expected!ITEMS OF NOTE:1. The noise reducing mounting “rubber grommets” were about 1/4” longer than the previous models, NBD, but I did need to get longer mounting screws than the previous model used.2. The pump weighs 8-pounds and IMO could have been packed a little better by the MFG. The reason that I mention this is because during shipment; due to the weight, shifting in the box, and kind of sharp angles on the pump edges, the power cable’s insulation was damaged and cut through leaving the copper wiring exposed. (The “copper strands” didn’t appear to be damaged at all, just exposed) I carefully wrapped the wires with electrical tape, but wished that I didn’t need to… IMO – the damaged insulation was NOT due to Amazon and/or shipping fault, the pump just could have been secured a little better by the MFG3. I will definitely be buying another, identical pump, to have on-hand as a ready spare, hoping to never actually use….
Disappointed in performance for my intended useI bought this product based on all the reviews complaining about the high pressure output and how it was blowing out the plumbing in some trailers. It was a replacement for a pump from tractor supply that I have mounted on my work truck to wash out heavy equipment coolers. I was hoping to find this pump to be better than the 4.5gpm @60psi I had. Even though the remco is 5.5@65psi it was a little disappointing to me. It does shut off at 80psi but quickly levels out around 60psi when not in use and cuts on at 40psi. It pulses real bad unless you have enough water flow.

Not quiet. Works most of the time, pressure regulator can go crazy.I’ve used this for a year. Twice (including today), pressure regulator won’t shut pump off till it his 120PSI – not good for an RV. Not quiet either.

Leaking after 2 yrsIt worked OK for a year or so. Then it started to pump after having been off for a while, and it wouldn’t stop unless I ran water for a bit.Remco support told me there must be air in the lines. This doesn’t make sense, but I opened every faucet to be sure I have bled every line. It sort of helped, but not really. If there was a leak in the lines, then it would come on every so often and build pressure and stop. But this would come on and not stop. I think this means that air must be getting into the diaphragm. Air isn’t going to get into the pressurized side of the lines, water will leak out. After a few months of this, something seemed to snap. It would not shut off and it didn’t deliver much water.I took the pump apart and found one of the 5 rubber diaphragm disks missing from it’s correct place and jammed in the output.Support was telling me that no warranty unless I went through the dealer/distributor.
Enough pressure to destroy your 100-140psi plumbingI had the 65psi 5.3gpm variable speed Aquajet pump as OEM equipment in a Monaco Executive Coach. After several phone calls regarding this units 75-85psi rating, I purchased the item and installed it in the coach whereas my lowest system component rating is at 100psi which is the Pex Manabloc. The actual unit states “85psi” which is not adjustable like the older units and is in fact 5.3gpm not the erroneous description information of “3.5gpm.” (I knew that by a simple spec search on Aquatec’s website.) Upon installation it blew every Manabloc seal rated at 100psi. I’m not talking about the valve seals, I mean the O-ring seals between each Manabloc section. It also blew the accumulator seal and collapsed a canister filter rated for high residential pressure. Expletives can only describe my thoughts right now and there’s no telling what other water lines it breached in the coach. Also, there are only residential fixtures in the coach with the exception of an electronic toilet with vacuum valves. Once I replace $500 worth of damaged parts I’ll get to discover what other leaks now exist. Hopefully the collapse of the water filter prevented extensive damage.The first time the pump ran I purged the system of all air and the pump shut off. I inspected for leaks and all was good to go. After eating dinner, I turned on the kitchen sink for a brief second and noticed that the pump started and was still running after 15 seconds. By the time I ran1 to the lower bay where the pump is located, water was spraying out of every Manabloc section, out of the accumulator port, and a pex crimp line was leaking water. I disconnected the positive terminal by opening the in-line fuse immediately and opened the drain valve to the cold and hot water. The amount of pressure that came out of the drain lines was unbelievable. My house has high pressure that doesn’t compare to the blast of pressurized water that came out. I then noticed water in the bay with the utility sink and it appears a leak occurred at the cold water thread and is the closest fixture to the pump. You don’t do this type of damage to residential fixtures with 85psi of water. The pump sounded like it was going to explode prior to disconnecting power. Thanks Aquatec for wasting my time, damaging my rig, and requiring me to special order a bunch of parts for repairs.
