HI Pat, One thought if you are going to replace your pump we have a pump
that we found in the Vitus cat. that works just fine. It is wired to a float
switch in a pipe that goes into the well. We too have a second pump that is
wired to the high water alarm just in case.
hope all else is well.

Serge, You said you replaced the block holding the valves.By
"block" do you
mean the lower half of the pump housing?The pump has a
check valve but the
strainer does not have a check valve and that may very well
help.I'll buy a new
strainer with check valve.Thanks for your input.Pat /

Hi Pat,

I had to replace the block holding the valves, and the
valves in 2005 on the
Jabsco pump, but the pump now works very well. However, as
a security, I
have installed a secondary bilge pump (Jabco again) which
is also connected
to
the high water alarm, all activated by a air switch which
is set a level
(+10") which indicates that the main pump has failed
to do the job. Once in
a
while ( before a crossing) I manually test the pump, by
deactivating the
main
pump for a few days.

If the valves are well placed and if the diaphragm is not
pierced, your pump
should work when the arm moves. The pump works much better
if the check
valve in the bottom strainer does retain water, and, of
course, the pump
will
not work at all if the stainer is blocked...

I suggest you look at the pump schematic ont the Jabsco web
site.
