|Is it ok to put a reversible pump in the engine compartment?|
|yes you can put it in there as long as the motor on the pump complies with USCG 183.410 and ISO 8846 Marine for ignition. In your post above you said you are wanting a reversible pump with 50 gph that is only 0.833 GPM even the slowest reversible water puppy is 4 gpm. Hope this helps, you will need to enclose controls if they have open contacts.|
|Did I say 50? I meant 500 min. |
Thanks for all the great info.

500 gph is 8.33 gpm the "ballast" pump from Jabsco is rated at 10 GPM it tested around 8 gpm. This is the small pump we use in some of our systems. We also use a 12 gpm and 14 gpm reversible positive displacment pumps in our systems. Since we are a OEM with these pump manufactures we are not allowed to sell just the pumps only use them in the systems we sell. E-mail us if we can help.
|That was my next question-if you could sell. |
thank you for the info
|What is the manufacturer and model number of the 12 gpm and 14 gpm reversible positive displacment pumps? |
They are very costly to buy 1 or two at a time at retail prices. Before we were set up as an OEM at discount prices, we paid $277 retail for one of the 14gpm pumps for testing. We spent a lot of time and money finding and testing these two pumps. Sorry if you want one of them you will have to buy a system.
