Yeah, replacing the pump is a better solution, but also 5 times the cost. For now I'm happy enough with the filter solution. Having to clean that filter once per season is way better than after every shower. At this point my only real gripe about it is the difficulty in accessing the pump and filters. I don't know what it is like on the Travato, but on the Paseo, you have to remove two drawers and then be a contortionist to reach them.
I don't think pressurization of the tank would be an issue, since the tank is vented. I think it is just about profit... a $50 pump vs. a $150 pump = $100 additional profit on every Paseo or Travato sold. And the buyers won't notice the difference until after the sale.
