Re: [Amel] Fresh Water Pump

Sounds a good idea Richard. I have been through 4 pressure stats and
two accumulators, the latter costing as much as a new pump!

Hi we simply changed to a 24 v on demand pump at 40psi from Shorflow
problem solved. Got rid of the pesky tank too.

I have an A.M.F.A A88 fresh water pump with the bronze impeller. The
pump struggles to reach cut off pressure after an overnight
discharge of
the batteries down to around 24.0 V. The Square D pressure switch was
replaced about a year ago and adjustment cannot cure the problem. A
couple of times now I have forgotten to trip the pump CB last thing at
night leading to a massive discharge of the batteries after the pump
failed to reach cut off pressure.

Looking at the impeller there does not seem much that can wear, but
maybe changing it will result in more pressure? Has anyone replaced
impeller with a noticeable improvement please?
