The SHURflo 2088-492-444 Park 115 VAC Pump is designed to provide reliable water pressure and flow to onboard sinks, toilets and showers commonly found in modern RVs, tent trailers and other vehicles. The pump runs on 115 VAC power and features a low power draw of 0.9 Amps, a three-chambered diaphragm allowing for self priming, a permanent magnet motor capable of intermittent to continuous duty, a maximum water pressure of 45 PSI and preset shut-off functionality. Additional pump uses include: pressurized water systems in cabins and general water transfer.
SHURflo fresh water pumps have enjoyed a near legendary reputation for performance and longevity among recreational vehicle owners since the late 1960s, and they continue to set the standard for the industry with the Park 115 VAC Pump. Part of SHURflo's 2088 Classic water pump series, the Park 115 VAC Fresh Water Pump features the same quality and dependability as the Standard and Deluxe models in the series, but in a pump designed for use with 115 VAC power sources common at campsites and trailer parks. 2088 series pumps are intended for intermittent or continuous duty when the proper operating criteria are met. This means that the SHURflo Park 115 VAC Water Pump is equipped to deliver high performance in the form of maximum water flow and pressure for onboard, sinks, toilets and showers, resulting in reliable performance each and every time you need it, wherever you set your hookups.
Low Amp Draw, Reliable Operation
SHURflo's potable water pumps operate three independent pumping chambers which allows the pump to self-prime and lift water up to 12 feet, all the while drawing a maximum of 0.9 amps of power. This leaves plenty of power to run other devices. With smooth flow and uninterrupted operation, Classic Series pumps include a built-in check valve to prevent back flow into the tank, as well as preset shutoff pressure to prevent system overload of premature failure. In addition, pumps can be mounted in any position and conveniently feature an adjustable switch and the capability to run dry without damage to the pump or motor.

SHURflo is part of the Flow Technologies Group of Pentair, Inc. (PNR), a publicly held company on the New York Stock Exchange. The company was founded in 1968 to serve a recreation market that was searching for a dependable fresh water pump to deliver water stored in tanks to the faucets, showers and toilets installed in the coaches. SHURflo delivered then and they deliver now as the dominant supplier to the RV, marine, general industrial and floor care markets. SHURflo has full service sales, service and distribution center in Elkhart, Indiana, as well as a hub for the company located in Cypress, California.

Dynamic HeadThe effect of the Earths gravity on the "lift" or head pressure is fairly simple; for every vertical foot of distance the pump moves the water you are adding one foot of head pressure so the ratio is a 1:1 ratio. The effects of the friction, caused by water as it travels through your hose or pipes, on the total head pressure is a little more difficult to calculate especially as there are slight variations in pipe friction in different hose materials and the smoothness of the inner bore. Basically. for every ten feet of pipe through which the water has to travel travel horizontally will contribute 1 foot of head height; the ratio of the pipe friction loss is a 10:1 ratio.
Plumbing fixtures and bends and corners in your hose also increase the total head you must calculate to ensure the proper final volume from your pump. Every corner with a 90 degree elbow in your plumbing will add 1 foot of head pressure with a 1:1 ratio. 45 degree elbows, tees and even insert couplers can all have an impact on the final flow.
If you install a pump 40 feet away from the top of your waterfall which is 6 feet above the pump and the tubing is a single run of 40 feet horizontally then you add 4 feet of head for the tubing length (the 10:1 ratio) to the 6 foot differnetial between the pump location and the final height of the waterfall so your final total dynamic head calculation would be 10 feet. This means your final volume of water flow in this water feature or application would be the volume of flow on the performance curve that equaled the gallons per hour at 16 feet. This volume will certainly be much less than the initial volume the pump can move at an open flow or a zero head.
If in the above example your 40 feet of horizontal tubing run also required 3 elbows of 90 degrees then an additional 3 feet of theoretical head would be added and your final flow result would be at 19 feet on the performance curve of the pump. In this example you would want to choose a pump that has the desired GPH rating at 9 feet of head pressure. Tubing size is also an important factor in accounting for head pressure loss, in general you should never reduce the diameter of the tubing below what the output size of the pump is, this will drastically increase head pressure, and reduce pump performance. For maximum pump performance, using the largest tubing that is practical is the best choice. A best practice is to use a hose with an inner diameter that is the same as your pumps outlet fitting.
