The bearings in my original Aquajet pump seized up. The pump had always been extremely noisy since we bought the trailer - and for all the racket it made, didn't put out a whole lot of H2O.

When I removed the pump I order to diagnose the problem, I found that it had a loop of flex hose in the outlet side, but hard piping right up the inlet filter - contary to Aquajet's installation instructions.

After I found the problem with the pump (seized bearing) I emailed Aquajet to see if I could buy parts. Two emails - no replies.

I then decided to just buy a new pump. Local RV dealers only had Shurflo in stock so that was what I wound up with - rated flow slightly less than the Aquatec Spec. I installed wit flex hoses on both sides of the pump.

The new pump works a treat! Almost silent and greater water flow than we ever had with the old one - all's well that ends well.

I think you have a leak on the suction side of the pump. If there are rubber hoses connecting the tank to the inline filter and then to the pump; they could be old and dry allowing air to etiher get in at the fittings or simply through the hose wall.
Replace any and all hoses on the intake side of the pump making sure that the connections are tight.

Thumbs up Got to find the pump.

OK, I'm going to try to locate the pump - I think it is in the closet under the floor (of the closet). That is where I hear it all the time. I'll see what I can find and let you know what I see (or take a picture). Thanks!

Mine made noise too. But it was the pump moving the pex pipe I put in. Even though it was tied with pipe brackets. I bought some of the foam pipe insulation. Put it in the bad spots and now it's nice and quite again..

Found the pump - picture here

OK, I found the pump - the far (in the picture) hose fitting seems a bit loose but when I try to tighten it the whole pipe system, elbow, etc. moves....

It is a Shurflo pump - not sure what the thing on the right is.

I use these mounts for sound / vibration isolation on pumps and it makes a huge difference...
