Hey Russ, what is the typical size of the tank in our old Bolers? Are they only 5 gallon? It doesn't seem all that big, but I'm a bad judge of size, especially non metric. But I looked at the tanks you can get from Scamp, and they say pre 90s, they were 10 gallon. But I realize we're talking about two different manufacturers. I'm thinking, that if its only a 5 gallon tank, I might get one of the 10 gallons from Scamp or something...

Edit: Darn! Amazon won't ship that item to Canada!! Arg, now the search for a Canadian supplier.

I'm not sure what the "standard" size is. When I got mine I had no idea what kind of shape the water system was in (leaks, contamination, etc) so I replaced everything. I ended up ordering a tank on ebay just based on the size. I think the one I got is 8.5 or 9 gallons. If you can measure the outside of your tank you could use something like a fish tank size calculator to determine the volume.

I was wondering about getting that pump to Canada. I actually looked for it on Amazon.ca before posting that link. Hopefully you can find one available somewhere else.

for comparison, the tank in our trillium is 14" x 18" x 10" and holds 10 gallons.

I'm having trouble finding one. I think a lot of electrical stuff won't ship to Canada because it would need to be CSA approved up here. But the standards up here aren't really any different then down there. If the markets not big enough, many companies don't bother getting the approval and don't ship up here because of costs. So I might have to find a brick and mortar store in Grand Forks, or Fargo (probably have way more luck in Minneapolis, but that's an 8 hour drive!). The last electrical device I needed, I couldn't get up here, but I got one in Sioux Falls, because we were driving through. But at that store, they don't sell Flojet. And its also an 8 hour drive! There was this guy in Grand Forks that had a warehouse, and you could ship stuff to him and he'd mail it up, but I can't remember who he is. I'll have to come up with something, I suppose.

I also found them at campingworld, and went through the checkout, and they seem to have no problem shipping to Canada either. I wonder what Amazon's issue is? We do have a Canadian Amazon site, but usually if a product is only available on the American site, we can still order it. But some things, maybe not. But thanks for the other option!
