LESS THAN EXPECTED

,
November 12, 2013
By Argonaut
from Redding Ca
"Installed in home system 3' above water tank to preasurize home in on demand application.
Has blown fuse 2 times since installed 4 1/2 months ago. Using proper wire size and recomended fuse 25A.
Have had a leak at the pump snap in fitting.(replaced) and recently another leak at the pump/motor diaphram.
It does provide advertised flow and preasure when working. Not very confident leaving the system on while going away for extended periods of time. Have come home to pump not working and trees lacking water.
Previous pump this replaced was shurflo 3.5 gpm 45 psi 12 volt and it worked flawess for 13 years. Just got tired. So I tried the Northstar NSQ.
I will go back for more dependable pumping at less gpm & preasure.

Water pump for instant hot water heater

,
October 7, 2013
By Dawkers
from Ontario, Canada
"Bought this pump for a camp shower that uses an instant hot water heater. Pushes plenty of water and the shower is better than you would expect at a spa! Pump powers up as you increase water demand and is as quiet at peak power as any RV pump I have experienced. This pump really should be marketed as an RV pump and if you want a water pump for recreational use, this thing is outstanding."

Excellent pump

By theweedkiller
from Chetek, WI
"Works very well. I almost have more pump than I need. I converted an older sprayer over to 12volt and this pump is great for this. I am covering a twenty foot swath with three high volume tips and also have a spray wand, and can run everything at the same time, and the pump keeps up great. Excellent product."
