Water pump expectations
We have a '73 safari in good shape. We fixed leaks so we know where to look. We couldn't get pressure from old pump so we replaced it with a new one...the proper replacement. We just don't know what to expect from proper behavior. For the first few days of use it ran for 10 minutes to build pressure then would go on for 15 seconds every 10 minutes or so with no usage or leaks. We even turned off the potty so it wouldn't be going into the tank with no indication.
We ripped out every cabinet and bunk to check for leaks. No leaks. We have a new water heater that works fine. No leaks there.
Last night the Mr took out the pump to check the connections....took off the cut off switch, reinstalled it and it seemed to work just great....a few min to build pressure and only came on when faucet was on. Turned it off at night but now, this morning, it pumped for 20 minutes and never cut off. We have no city electricity so we can't let it keep going indefinitely today.
Any suggestions before we just replace it again?
