I am having trouble with my water faucet in my pop up. When we hook up pressurized water to the system the faucet will not stop running like the valve will not shut off. And, when we try to use the 5 gal internal tank it will not pump the water into the sink. It seems to just be drawing air from the pressurized water inlet. The FUMP faucet is less than a year old. Thanks for any help!
Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
There is a 3 port valve conneted to the incomming water line (white usually). It is actually a check valve to keep the outside water from overfilling your tank. Verify it is installed correctly.

How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

If the pump sounds like it`s working, but water doesn`t flow, check for blockage and leaks. Start from the fresh water tank or the municipal supply line. You need to verify every pipe and fitting between the water supply and your faucet. Unplug fixtures to check if water flows through them.
Fill the water tank completely with water. Turn on the water pump and let it run for a few minutes to pressurize the system. Begin opening the faucets and valves one at a time, starting from the closest one to the water pump, and let the water run until all the air has been released from the lines.
There are many things that could lead to no water supply even with your water pump running. Some of the possible issues include: A blocked sediment filter or a failing filtration system. Low water table caused or overusing your water supply.
If the water pump`s drive pulley is vibrating, the pulley bearings will wear and eventually fail. This reduces pump efficiency before eventually causing failure. Additionally, a wobbling drive pulley can cause the water pump`s impeller to become imbalanced. This will cause pump failure as well.
Unwelcome moisture may damage several different areas of your unit. Early signs you may have a water leak inside your RV or travel trailer include water stains, damaged lamination, discolored wood, and bubbles in your paneling. Unchecked, you may have damage in the walls or floors, slide-outs and other mechanicals.
RV water systems distribute water in three main ways: by a demand pressure system, a city water pressure system, or a manual pump system. A demand pressure system utilizes a water pump powered by a small 12-volt motor. Most RV water pumps pressure to a range of 40-50 PSI.
If the pump starts to make a loud banging noise or is vibrating excessively, then you likely have an airlock. The air is making the pump work harder and the banging is caused by the pump stopping and starting repetitively. If you`ve noticed a sudden drop in your water pressure, this is again probably an airlock.
Why Do Airlocks Occur? Airlocks occur when bubbles in the pipeline gather at a high point in the system. If the water velocity is not greater than the rising velocity of the air bubbles, the air will remain in the pipe and cause a restriction.
With the engine off, open your hood and locate the water pump pulley. With gloves on, grab it and wiggle it back and forth. There should be no movement, if there is, this along with the noise is a good indication you may have a water pump problem.
Your water filter could cause low water pressure because it`s clogged and needs replacing. Changing your filter every six months to a year will guarantee clean drinking water while you`re away from home. You should check your filter before you venture out in your RV to ensure it`s clean.
Without a correctly running water pump, your engine will overheat in the summer or freeze in the winter. This can not only cause damage to the gaskets, cylinder heads and pistons, it often results in total engine failure.

Yes, it`s safe to drink water from your RV fresh water tank as long as you regularly maintain and sanitize the tank and water system. Your RV fresh water tank holds fresh water for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and more.
Some signs you`ll want to be on the lookout for include the pump not starting, rattling noises when turned on, and leaking from the pump head or switch. Noises and leaks are often the results of loosened parts that you`ll need to retighten.
Will an airlock clear itself. Even if you run out of water, air should automatically clear in a well-constructed low-pressure water pipe system. The air should naturally climb to the top and discharge as the pipe system fills up.
What happens when you get an airlock in a pipe? If air gets trapped in your central heating or hot water system, this can stop hot water from circulating, causing radiators to stop heating up and hot water taps to stop running. Getting the hot water flowing again requires releasing the air out of the system.
Air, in fact, attempts to expand to fill the container it is placed in. If there is no walls to the container, like on a planet, it will only be stopped by gravity. When the airlock is unsafely open or a hole is made in a spaceship, the air inside attempts to fill the void of space.
To check if your pump is operating efficiently, measure the power consumed by the pump and check it against the pumps performance curve. The pump curve will specify how much power you should be using at the flow and pressure your pump is generating. This helps you to identify which pumps are not operating efficiently.
You can measure the head pressure by installing a pressure gauge or manometer and comparing this with the manufacturer`s documentation for the diameter of piping in the system. If this is lower than advertised then the pump is not performing correctly and may need to be repaired or replaced.
Think again! Though most pumps do cost a nominal amount of money to run 24/7, if you shut yours down each night, you could be affecting your pond`s water quality and your fishes` wellness, and that could cost you even more in the long run.
When well cared for, an RV water pump can last up to 10 years — though, of course, there`s always some variation depending on manufacturer, model, and plain old luck of the draw.
If the pump sounds like it`s working, but water doesn`t flow, check for blockage and leaks. Start from the fresh water tank or the municipal supply line. You need to verify every pipe and fitting between the water supply and your faucet. Unplug fixtures to check if water flows through them.
A quick and easy way to increase water pressure is to adjust the pressure-reducing valve, which can be found in your home, usually close to your water meter. If your pressure gauge reading was low, make slight adjustments to your regulator.
If the water pump is running but no fluid is being pumped this could be blocked inlet suction filter, check valves failed with pumps bypassing, blocked discharge lines, electric motor polarity is incorrect or incorrect pressure settings parameters amongst other issues.

I have a volvo penta md7a marine diesel engine fitted in my sailing boat. Recently, I changed the bottom sea **** which was almost blocked. Apparently the new sea **** is working well as it should. But this week with no apparent reason and without use of engine, I noticed that the cooling system water cup (the recipient which connects with the sea **** hose and the water pump hose) is empty and it Im not able to keep it full like it was before.The water vanishes every time I tried to fill it up in order to keep the water running throught the system. However the waterpump seems to be working. But almost no water is coming out of the exhaustor, of course, just a few drops once in a while. What might be going on ?? Thanks.
ANSWER : I don’t have a picture of the installation, but I can imagine a water filter above the water line with an improperly fitted cover and an air leak that lets the seawater drain out – losing the prime. Old Swampy in New Hampshire

My swimming pool. I have just had my fifth IC 40 Intellichlor chlorine generator installed in 4 years at a cost of over $900 today. Each one has worked for no more than 8 months. The first three were replaces under three year warranty, the fourth by a factory rep and I bought the fifth today. The first three all failed with Flow Chk PCB error message. The fourth just stopped working on Sunday, no power or lights. A local Pentair warranty person, whom I paid a Service Call, unplugged the unit, opened the small power center cover, showed me the green light indicating that there was power, plugged in a new IC 40 which worked immediately (as did the other four). I asked if I should replace the power center and he said that it’s basically just a transformer and is working fine. We do get occasional power blips that make the clocks on microwaves, etc blink, but I thought that the power center essentially isolates the cell from these. I do have a Florida Power and Light surge protector on the electrical box that brings power into the house. I have now talked to the pool builder, two Pentair warranty repairmen and one factory rep. I am at a loss. They all tell me they have no idea why these units fail after less than a year. This last IC 40 was installed 3/24/2010, version 2.0 and now failed in less than 5 months. Should I replace the power center that the IC 40 plugs into. Any other suggestions. I have been told that this is the best chlorinator. I don’t want to keep replacing units. By the way, each unit had been spotless inside. I keep the water chemicals and salt levels at ideal levels. The units have never worked long enough to get dirty inside. The power center is connected to an Intellitouch control system outside with an indoor control panel. Last time I called Pentair North Carolina and got some smart alec tech person that had no suggestions. Please Help if you can.
ANSWER : I’ve had the same experiance. On my fifth one as well. Fail every year. No idea why.

Colemans hot water on demand.new battery ,plenty of gas .works on cold,but not on hot
ANSWER : If it is out of warranty there is a fuse inside them that is covered with a light rubber coating, it is the common glass style fuse. That may be causing your issue assuming the battery is ok. The batteries die regularly too especially if it hasnt been charged and is sitting around.

I have Detroit 60 series installed on a launch. Recently the Starboard unit suffers a catastrophic failure and piston No2 came out of the block, making a big hole. This engines are using heat exchangers, and sea water cooled Charge Air Coolers and sea water self priming raw water pump. We contact the local dealer an the veredict was a “Massive salt water ingestion” that caused an Hydraulic lock and damaged cyls 6 and 2. They say that the water came from the deck covers, but there is no way for that to happen, I think they dont want to honor any warranty, because we suspect that the water came from the Charge Air Cooler. I want to know if the CAC can cause that type of failures and if anyone had a similar problem. The engine cost is about 66K and only had 2300 hours.
ANSWER : I would have to say that a sleeve got pitted or lost an oring or the CAC sprung a leak. I believe you are correct in your assumption that the water did not enter the unit in the manner they are saying. The only real way to tell is a complete tear down and someone is going to have to pay. They are also a high maintenance item and someone is going to say that the preventive maintenance was not done.
