    Moving the water pump - 330 sig

    Agree, looking at this: http://www.safh2ouv.com/Boat---RV-Owners.html One of my friend did install this on his boat, behind a pump to suck water out of the lake, filter it, and fill up his water tank. Nice idea when you spend 2 weeks on the water, anchoring from bay to bay. For me, a would like to have the filtering system for the full boat water supply, whatever hooked at a marina, or at a bay. Beside the noise issue that we are leaving with since 4 years, this is the main reason of this though. I would have better access, in the engine compartment to access the pump, filtering system and figure out the filtering system. A lot of good ideas here, thank you all! Cannot wait the unwrapping weekend (hopeful in April) when we will prepare the boat for summer. Will keep this thread posted with the final design

    nice for the marina, but we are travelling a lot with the boat and cannot trust other marinas. we opted for an onboard filtering system

    where I am boating I would not trust the water from the marinas, whatever I use it directly from city water supply or tank. Always use a RV type of filter at the marina.

    As to the insulation, are you boxing it in or or you leaving enough room so air can flow. From the ShurFlo manual " The pump should not be located in an area of less than one cubic foot unless adequate ventilation is provided." https://www.easternmarine.com/downloads/dl/file/id/4823/installation_guide.pdf ==>> this is strange as Chaparral put it behind the fridge today, and there is no air flow in that tiny space. I even think that is one of the reasons why I have vibration noise, fridge should be touching or pushing it. I will make proper measurements once I can access the boat again

    yes 2013 Signature 330 the water tank is located at the bow, under the bed, and the pump behind the fridge in the galley system. Already not really close to the tank I will need to look at the grey water tank. Extending the water capacity would also add weight on the boat

    wow, really nice - Please do share will help with the noise Still need to decide about the filter. Original idea was to pump from the lake, then filter. But we were thinking to filter the whole thing (water tank or city line)

    I think this is the same brand, but mine is on the wall behind the fridge.

    water from the marina smell yes and we are already using a RV filter cartridge directy at the post. But I do not feel pulling water from the lake with no filtering
