Water Tank Filled? Is it or is it not?
So I am am unclear as to whether or not my fresh water tank is filled. First of all I do not know if the gauge works. It is reading empty. When I hooked up to the "city" fresh water, I know I filled the hot water tank, as I could hear it fill. The fresh water tank made zero noise. I am used to an SOB and being able to hear the tank fill. I heard nothing. When I treated the fresh tank via the outside curbside filler by adding the bleech solution, and then turned on the faucets, I did get the bleech to come through (confirmed by smell). But how can I know if the fresh tank is full? I might add that the pump is original from 1990, and when I shut off the city water and turn it on, it pumps and pumps and pumps a trickle, and never shuts off. I assume the pump must be replaced. I can also note that when I am attached to the city water, and turn on the "auto fill", I still hear no noise of a filling tank. Auto Fill "seems" to do nothing. Bottom line, when I first tried to fill the tank, and with ongoing water usage, I hear no noise of water going into the tank. Thus, I do not trust that it is full.
