Fresh Water System Pumps
Has anyone had any experience in replacing the accumulator tank and old pumps with the new automatic demand pumps? Shurflo 4008-101-E65 has an internal bypass to do this, but I am reluctant to jump in without knowing how well they perform. Is there any irritating delay? Any comments?

RE: Fresh Water System Pumps
For years I've run a Shurflo 5.7 Extreme without an accumulator tank. AFAIK, the Extreme series doesn't have a bypass. I've never had any problems. I always figured the natural expansion capability of my PEX water distribution tubing functioned as it's own accumulator.
