Re: Water system looses pressure
You've said you connected the cold water line directly to the pump, and that drew
water from the fresh tank and pumped it to the sink? Is that correct? So, it probably isn't
I was going to say the reason I had low pressure was a badly clogged filter inside the Shurflo
water pump. Mine has an opaque plastic cover around the filter, and if you press hard
on the filter cover, and then twist it, it can be removed. Like a child-proof cap on a
medicine bottle. The filter looked like it had a layer of sludge pressed into it. When
it was cleaned, the pump worked much better and only came on when demand triggered
You might try emptying the fresh tank, and/or adding a half bottle of pure white vinegar to
your water and then trying to run the taps or shower or flush the toilet continuously to
get it circulated. It could be calcium deposits loosened by the freeze/thaw.
Another idea, is stick your pinky finger up into the threaded brass tap where your connection for the city
water goes. You should feel a small spring loaded ball valve in there, that is supposed to be closed when not
in use to prevent water from draining back out of the tap. See if you can push it in a bit with your finger.
Feel if it gently pushes back down against your finger. Also, when not filling the fresh tank
from the city water connection, that red valve should be in the vertical position.
Good luck amigo!
It's not a sprint(er) (unless you make it one), it's (hopefully) a marathon.
