A few decades.
As sea water system needs the same consideration as a FW pressure water setup.
An accumulator of some sort will lessen pump cycling , and the of/on pressures can be set with a Square D house pump well switch , about $20 at home shops.
Folks of the KISS religion simply use an off on switch and forget the rest.
Might be great to use a push button at knee height to allow washing both hands together.
It is sort of elegant to have the motor pump on demand by turning the faucet handle. Or I could rig another switch.
Does a Jabsco utility bronze impeller pump, or any pump suffer if it ran wet yet the output is blocked? The impeller vanes can only pump so much pressure, then they will flex out of the way inside their bronze housing.
When I replaced the OEM totally destroyed rusted Jabsco impeller, I went with Globe impeller which can run dry for 15 minutes.
I had to melt the OEM SS impeller core from off the motor shaft with acetylene torch. The motor shaft is mild steel, it rusted jamming the SS impeller center.
To even get the bronze housing out of the way, I had to use a core drill and cut down between rubber and SS. I was really disgusted with Jabsco, not using a SS motor shaft. And that pump lists for $600!
