Fresh Water Pump recycling

854 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Delta-T
My fresh water pump keeps coming on every few minutes. No water is leaking into the bilge. The water pressure at the faucet does not appear to drop. When I switch to my backup water pump it has the same result. I have searched everywhere for leaking water and find nothing. Coul it be an air leak on the intake side?

Thanks. I have a set of valves that allow me to switch from one pump to a backup pump. The cycling continues when I switch from one pump to the other. I thin it unlikely that they both failed in the same way at the same time. Any thoughts?
Thanks for your suggestion. Actually, I have 2 accumulators tanks in a series. Do you think I should follow your procedure for each separately or just the one closest to the pumps or something else?
