Re: AMFA bilge pump rebuild kit

I think its worth to rebuild the original Pump as long as the housing has no bad cracks.

The AMFA pump is a very robust one. I even replaced the motor and gearbox when mine broke. Used Bosch truck wiper motor with similar rpm.

Most newer pumps look like toys, compared to AMFA.

As I said before truck tire tube is perfect replacement for flaps and diaphragma.

Hi Herbert,

I’ve contacted the pump manufacturer and the pump is no longer in production and they have ceased producing serving kits.

I’m also interested in a source for the flap valve but am now looking at a pump replacement option.

Very best wishes

Hi Herbert

What about changing the pump for the electric Lavac Vacuum Toilet Pump? Available for 12v and 24v.
See Lavac spare parts here:

I have the Lavac toilet with hand pump only and so cannot say the electric pump will be good.
However the toilet works since 30 years without any maintenance.
