    I need to replace the pump that fills my livewell. However, all I can find are ones that do NOT have a self priming feature. I need to raise mine up above where bilge water may come in contact with it. As it is now, it's mounted just barely above the drain plug. I want to move it higher and over on the side near the water inlet, but it would need to be able to suck water into itself instead of depending on water just flowing down a tube to it.
    Anyone know of a 12volt water pump that would work for this ?

    I used a potable water pump from a camper to fill my tank .
    find a used one and use a small PVC check on the inlet new ones cost an arm and leg.
