Kent, after our first pump failed we found a Vetus pump to replace other
original diaphragm pump. After two more failures it seems there are some
"issues" with that pump. We in desperation installed a 24 volt macerator
it has a 1.5" intake and one inch out put. So we installed a reducer on the

line going overboard. The macerator pump runs at well over 8 gallons per
by far faster and using less power then the previous pump (s). Second I can

hear it start up and run it may be not as Amel but I know when the bilge
pump in
on and I kinda like that. It's worked well and draws without issue. For us
a very big improvement.
We spent a lot of money and time before we got to this point...
Good luck

Subject: [Amel] SM 24v Bilge Pump

Hi again, all,
I just got back on Kristy to do some prep for the trip south and discovered
the bilge pump isn't working. The flapper valves on the intake and output
of the pump were attached to the inside of the pump head by screws that
rusted completely off, making it impossible to replace with new ones. I
think I
will need to get a new head for the pump but there are no identifying marks
the pump except "PAM" printed on a sticker on the pump head. I believe this
a Sandvik pump, but cant find it searching the web. Can anyone tell me what

brand and model pump it should be on SM243? Has anyone replaced this pump
another brand and if so how much of a problem was it to mount in the engine

room? Has anyone had the same problem with this pump and do you have
suggestions for how to repair it?

Thanks as always for your replies.
