    Gathering some intel on good interwebz sources for vacuflush parts.
    We burned out one of the pumps in our boat and might as well rebuild the whole thing while it’s out. At least it’s the easy one to get to. My boat has the s pump style I believe?

    Not to hijack the thread as i think it is relevant, was wondering if anyone has installed knock off duck bills in their vacuflush systems, and what results they have had. There are a lot of them out there on ebay and like everything, they are coming from China. Because they are significantly cheaper than the Dometic brand, it is tempting to try.

    I'm not sure why, the Dometic ones aren't all that expensive to begin with, and it's not something you want to have fail sooner than normal.

    I would agree. This is one area where staying with the brand is worth it due to cost/reliablity

    Then don't. As i said, they've been working good for me....and I had a few extra bucks to have a beer afterwards.

    Ardemco is who I have used for parts. They are also very helpful when you need some troubleshooting help.
