      Re: Livewell/Wash Down Pump Question

      The Parmax 4 is a run dry pump. I have one on my raw water washdown and have forgotten to turn it off a couple of time when I pulled the boat. Only a couple of hours though.

      It's a diaphragm pump so you couldn't have done too much to the pump. Rebuild kits are cheap, give it a shoot

      Is the motor running at all?

        Thanks, I FOUND the reciept!!!!!!!!! Wow! bought it 4/07. so I called GO2Marine, and there sending me a packing slip to ship it back for a new one! It's got a 3 yr warr. How cool is that! I went down in the bilge and took it out and I'm ready to send them the pump. If any problems arrise I will let you all know. But so far no problem with Go2 at all.

          And when you are done fixing the pump, install a MASTER POWER switch. No more toasted motors or dead batteries. But then it will only help if you remember to turn it off. :-)

              AMEN!
              Last fall we took my buddies boat to upper NY for a remote 4 day fishing trip.
              On the morning of the trip, he accidently hit his livewell switch. We got to NY and found the battery dead (which left us only 2 to run teh trolling motor for the full 4 days.)
              Just rigging my new boat this month and have rewired the pos feed for the factory fuse/switch panel for the bilge, livewell and nav lights through a master switch. Otherwise, I could just see me doing the same thing :-(
