jabsco sea water pump advice

My Perkins are equiped with Sherwood pumps, but you should do fine with a standard impeller, as you should change them every year anyway if you have that much silt passing through them. *Did you already check the impellers for lost blades. *You may have another problem, such as plugged heat exchanger, etc.

My understanding is the nitrile impellers are for pumping petroleum products or protection from oil contaminated water, etc. *We use nitrile rubber gloves in my work, because it is resistant to ozone, mild acids and oils.
