Video Transcript for HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump, part number P25201.The HydroMax works as a direct replacement for a three gallon per minute 12 volt pump. You can also use it for new plumbing in an RV, enclosed trailer, or marine application. You can position it anywhere you need it in either a vertical or horizontal position.The built in check valve prevents backflow, and the built in strainer prevents unwanted debris from entering the pump. The internal bypass provides low cycling and low noise, and the durable, flexible mount reduces vibration and noise. It automatically turns on and off when it senses a pressure different from your faucet. As you can see, when it's on, you can hear it pumping, and then when we turn it off, it automatically shuts off.It has a self-priming design, and unlike some other pumps, it can run dry without damage.

It uses a standard half inch diameter hose fitting, inlet, and outlet. They are flexible high pressured fittings, and they're designed with tapered seals for a watertight connection. It'll pump three gallons per minute at up to 55 psi.We've got out old pump installed. Let's see how long it takes to fill the sink up. Looks like it took a minute, 51 seconds.

Now with our new pump installed, let's see how long it takes to fill up our sink. Now our two pumps are rated about the same. As you can see, over time, our old one has lost a step. Our new one is able to pump water much faster.Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. The first thing you need to do is remove your old pump.

You'll need to make sure the pump is shut off and the power is disconnected. Our pump is located just beneath our sink. Yours might be located in a different spot. Once your pump is off, you want to be sure and make sure there's no pressure in the lines. You can release the pressure by simply opening up the sink and letting it all run out.Now we're down at our pump.

There's probably still going to be some residual water in the lines, so it's a good idea to lay a towel down. On our pump, our water in is simply connected by a hose clamp. Our out, we can just unscrew. We'll start here. Get this disconnected. On the other side . now, you can use a screwdriver or a socket.We'll just be taking it loose and then pulling the hose off. You can see our wires here. Use some quick splice connectors and cutting this one. Then I'll be cutting both sides of my white wire, which is my ground. Just because they spliced into it. Now we can remove our pump. Ours just has four wood screws going into the floor.Now we can grab our new pump and set it in place. Our newer one has a thicker isolator for vibration, so we're not going to be using that carpet that our old one used. When setting it in place, it's best to line it up with your existing plumbing. That way you don't have to reroute anything. You can see with it in this position, we're going to be able to hook back up and it's not going to be a problem.Now I'm gonna grab my old hardware. Either way, you will have to provide your own. And then I'm just gonna be attaching it to the floor board, just as our old one was. Since our out is the easiest to hook up, I'm gonna go ahead and just take off my covering and do that first. One thing important to remember is there's no need to over tighten. Just get it nice and snug, about like the way it was when we disconnected it.Now the other side, our inlet side gets the filter. This is something our previous water pump did not have. It simply screws on this side. We've got a little indicator which way the water runs. The other side, if you had a thread on adaptor like our outlet, then you would not need the adaptor, but since we had a hose, we'll be attaching our hose to the connector, and then threading it on like so. The kit does come with two, if you need them.We'll take off our protector here, and we'll thread on our filter. Perfect. We're gonna slip it over the bars. Make sure it's all the way on. We'll slide our hose clamp that we used before. You want to make sure you have it about a quarter of the way, and we'll tighten this up.Now the wiring on our new water pump comes pre stripped and soldered. The only thing we need to strip back is our camper's wiring. Now we'll make sure that our wire is bunched up, then we're gonna take some standard butt connectors, which you can pick up on our website, etrailer.com. Gonna slide that in, make sure it makes contact, and we're gonna crimp it. Then we can take our new water pump's power wire, which is the red one, and we'll be connecting it in the opposite end the same way. Now for the ground. Since our previous water pump was spliced in, we're gonna be connecting two sides to our butt connector, and one side to the other.Perfect. Now we can test it out. Let's go ahead and turn our pump back on and check for leaks. Now we'll go ahead and turn on our faucet. There might be some air in the lines. No problem. We'll just let it work its way out. Already you can hear how much quieter the pump is compared to the other one. It looks like our pressure is good too. That's gonna complete our look at the HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump, part number P25201.

I used this pump to replace a very similar one - the mounts were the same and the plumbing plugged right in. The power spade connector is deeply recessed and can be difficult to plug in, in a confined area. Service from etrailer was great. 440849

by:

Great little pump, it's well built and worth the money. I've had other, but this is top notch. I like the fact it comes with the straight bar fittings and the filter with it, meaning you don't have to order them separate. So, far it works like a dream. 570263

Do you have a question about this RV Fresh Water?


  • Macerator System and Pump for RV Septic Tank
  • The SewerSolution Macerator System for RV Waste Tanks - Bayonet Fitting and 4-in-1 Adapter - 10' # SS01 should work well for your close to level application. The backflow preventer integrated is key to make sure your fresh water supply is not contaminated. RV systems are not intended to be dumped with hoses running upstream, so I am definitely hesitant to confirm this will work. It is intended to clean the system, not work as a pump to move the waste. If you need to pump the waste,...

  • Add Battery/12V System To Existing 120V System In Pop Up Trailer

If the trailer currently uses a converter from the shore power and the accessories and lighting run on 12 volts then you can run them...

Based on my research, it looks like your existing Shurflo 2088-403-144 pump features these same specs so it should work great as a replacement. I do recommend verifying the specs on your particular model though as it looks like there may have been a couple different versions of this Shurflo pump.

  • Is a Pump Needed for Water Tank R8060 and Can it be Mounted in a Truck Bed
  • You would need a pump such as # P25201 for Valterra RV Water Tank # R8060. Mounting hardware is not included. I can't say how well this item would do mounted in a truck bed though. You might want to instead look at truck bed transfer tanks such as # DZ91750SB as an example. They do cost more but are designed to be out in the elements. You could then add a pump such as # 123000-06 for a manual pump or # 110000-107 for an electric pump.

  • Fresh Water Pump Randomly Comes On without any Faucets Running in Trailer
  • The first thing I would do is check for leaks. It is possible, even though the trailer was winterized, something froze and cracked. It may not be a bad leak but a leak nonetheless could cause the system to steadily lose pressure which would make the pump run. Since pump # P25201 is automatic it would either be that (loss of pressure) or an electrical issue. You can check the connections and clean any corrosion or debris away. Corrosion could cause a short and make the pump run. I can't...

  • Water Pump Compatibility on Class A Motorhome Coach
  • There is not one fresh water pump that works for both 12V and 115V power by itself. Most coaches have a power inverter or converter that allows that one pump to work. The vast majority of coaches will use a 12V pump like the Flow Max RV Fresh Water Pump - 3.3 Gallons Per Minute - 45 PSI # LC689052 or the HydroMax RV Fresh Water Pump - 3 Gallons Per Minute - 55 psi # P25201.
