AC Pump and Strainer Replacement

Postby NMulcahey » Sat Jul 06, 2019 8:06 pm

Hi, new here and hoping someone has experience with replacing parts of their AC.

I am a new owner of the boat, so I am not certain what is there currently was the original equipment but I do know it’s broken. The sea strainer housing is destroyed (sheared bolts, broken housing, etc) and the pump is also I op. It appears both were Marine UL but I wanted to see if anyone has replaced with another one and has a recommendation. There are far more choices than I expected, but based on feedback and ratings I am currently looking at Shurflo for both.

Any advice or history is welcome! Thanks

shurflo is always a good bet along with some others, attwood is one brand I would hesitate to use but some tomes you just have to us what fits. Think about how much you use the a/c, unless someone managed to shoehorn a genset into a 2600 you will only be using the a/c at the dock when your plugged in so you might not need the best most expensive pump just one that's reliable but I would chose a strainer that was pretty darn good. The more stuff you keep from going into the pump the better it will work and the longer it will last
The trouble with trouble is it starts as fun!
