Dear Johnson Pumps, is it supposed to look like this? English Mar 292012 Well now I know why the transom compartment bilge pump stopped working ;-) I guess the pump was not as watertight as it was supposed to be. Oh well... 3 Responses to “Dear Johnson Pumps, is it supposed to look like this?” Åke Nordin says: 2012-03-30 at 16:39 Oh, I don’t know. To me it seems it holds it’s water pretty well, nothing leaking out of that enclosure… Carlo says: 2012-03-30 at 17:52 The pump looks wet inside, can you clean and dry it and seal the pump with Silicone Aquarium Sealant? Jesper says: 2012-03-31 at 1:43 Hehe the pump is totally destroyed inside. All the corrosive metal has dissolved in the salt water, creating the brownish goo that you see. Today I have replaced it with the shower drain pump from the forward shower, which was the same type. But I took it apart and improved the sealing before mounting it, as you said.
