Johnson Ballast Pump

Recommended Posts

Nitrousbird

I am about to buy 3 of the Johnson pumps. It looks like the unit Wakemakers sells for $170 is the 1107, which is the NPTF version. But I'm seeing I can get the 11 for around $140. I would sure to save $90. Since I am going to run 1" hose I will be clamping over the housing so the thread type is meaningless. Am I missing something about this or should I order the 11 and save some cash?

Jason at wakemakers matched the price I found on Amazon no problem. They are great guys and have been VERY helpful to me in my ballast project planning so I was glad to buy from them. I'm coming straight out of locash though so the $ makes a difference to me unfortunately...

I wish I had seen that. I just bought a Johnson from Wakemakers and it looks good. Now I just need to actually get out there and use it!

Are there owner's manuals with specs on the internet somewhere that might point out some other differences?

Here is the instruction manual for the Johnson pumps, and it lists the different model numbers of those pumps and their thread/voltage type:

I ended up being a bit wrong on the price...cheapest I've found is $140 + shipping, so $148/each.
