Hard stop is avoided
One of Jabsco’s most popular packages consists of the Par Max Plus 4 pump and an eight-litre accumulator tank.
And the combination is being increasingly chosen by those living on board their boats or heading off on blue water cruises.
“Many pumps are aimed at the leisure market rather than liveaboards where the pumps are being used all day,” explained Richard Call, marine sales manager of Xylem Water Solutions UK, of which Jabsco is one of its brands.
“We often see people who are new to boating living on board their vessels as a cheaper way to have a home.
“Using the Par Max with an accumulator tank extends the life of the pump and also makes it a lot quieter. It’s a lot more akin with a similar performance to what we may find in a bricks and mortar house.”
He added: “When the pump is coupled with an accumulator tank, the flow is smoothed out and it also avoids the hard stop when the pump is turned off.
“It also has the added advantage of users being able to draw water off at night without making a noise. An accumulator tank is something a lot more people should fit but don’t.”
The Par Max 4 has a flow rate of 16 litres per minute. It can be installed separately to the tank.
