    We need to change our pump. Have bought a Shurflo automatic demand pump and have come to fit but the incoming flow is on the opposite side to the pump we already have fitted. Is it okay to fit the new Shurflo upside down or is there another solution?
    Thanks for any suggestions

    I had the same problem when I fitted this pump.. .. to overcome, I bought the Surflo silencer kit..

    It comprises two short lengths of flexible pipe .. you can then pipe the correct way ... the kit is designed to reduce noise in systems with solid pipework.. as found in US RVs

    Good luck with the demand pump, I had nothing but trouble with it and eventually sent it back and exchanged for the standard pump.. keep your receipt

    sold here http://www.abp-accessories.co.uk/product.php?cat=56

    You may be able to make up something.. it looks like this
