Here yesterday-gone today..WATER PRESSURE

Okay- The past couple of days I've been flushing my water system running it quite a bit to get the bleach out that I put in one tank to sanitize the system. I've been running just the 12volt pump & the dirrect city line system(at different times). I had a bad leak from my shower head/faucet combo & took this out(the new one will be here Wednesday). Now I have just a trickle of water coming out of my kitchen faucet (The pump is running). When i go dirrect to the city line system-100% pressure. The 12 volt-nothing. I even turned the shower line back on to see if that was the problem & I still had a trickle of water coming out with the 12volt system. This is a new pump too! Any ideas..????

Yes. You almost certainly have flushed a load of grit up into the pump filter. These usually just have a simple coarse screen filter. Or possibly upstream into the faucet.

Good luck,

Mark

You mention "new pump". Is this a demand pump or a pressure pump? I suspect your '66 came originally with a pressure pump, but they frequently are replaced with a demand type due to the very high cost of new pressure pumps.

If a demand pump, you should have an inline filter just upstream from the pump. Typically, they have a transparent plastic cover which is held on by a screw or bolt. You remove the cover and the screen is accessible. Be very, very careful to reseat the cover when reinstalling as the pump will suck air given even the smallest oportunity.

If a pressure pump, I can't help. Someone on the forum can, I am sure.

If your old screen suction filter leaks air, Jabsco makes a newer version with the same part no. as the old PAR unit. It screws on instead of using a screw to hold it on. I had to replace mine.
