    Actually, it sounds like that depends on which impeller you have. The ones that Ed's boat came with, apparently the vanes are too soft so they do let water through when moving. The solution is to swap it out with an impeller with stiffer vanes. But I hear that with those impellers, they will "stick" to the housing and it blows the fuse if you activate the pump. Also, the Jabsco pump will burn it's impeller if you leave it on after the bag is empty where us the Tsunamis won't. Like sandm says, they have their pros and cons.

    I will probably go with one intake and three 800 gph tsunami pumps but I will enlarge the intake to 1" and will use 1" tubing to each bag instead of the current 3/4".
