If you buy those, report back on how they work. I'm interested to know how they compare to the Jabsco pump.

I heard they are pretty much equal, but they do not come with a switch (which i dont need). They use the same impellers too...

I bought 2 of them and will report back

Got my pumps the other day. They look good, only thing i noticed and im not sure if its the same with the Jabsco, is these still come standard with the black impeller, not sure if the Jabscos come with the green ones. Either way Ill run these till the impeller dies and then get the green ones.

Every Jabsco I've purchased came with green impellers. So if the Johnsons have black impellers they you can add $25 bucks to their price.

Kinda what I figured, Let's see how long the black ones last... Im gonna take apart my broken Jabscos and see how the impellers look maybe ill get lucky and they will be reusable. Still $144 + $25 = $169 which is cheaper than the Jabsco...
