  1. I have a simple question about RV water pressure pumps. I'm going to be installing a seaflow water pump, but there's just one thing I'm unsure about. I'm going to mount the pump on the wall, and am unsure on which side of the pump should be up and which should be down. I've seen them installed both ways on the internet, but which is the correct one? Should the water hose connectors be on the bottom or on the top?
  2. First time to ask a Question: I have a water pump that seems to be constantly running. It used to respond normally: open a faucet, water pumped and you could hear the pump begin and then stop as it returns pressure to the tank. Now, I hear a constant low motor noise that ceases when pump switch is turned off. Common sense and my training tell me that water is going somewhere if the pump is running. BUT I CAN’T FIND A LEAK, or water damage anywhere. Any recommendations as to a reputable service center in San Diego Area? I’ve had a few deeply disappointing encounters with places that don’t seem to have qualified technicians able to do simple things requiring many returns to the shop, lost time and money and very poor results. South Coast RV and Camping World being the standouts for a “lowlights reel.”
  3. Of course, I generally prefer the fresh water demand pump at or below the level of the tanks outlet so gravity feeds the pumps suction inlet and it don't have to lift any whatsoever. HOWEVER I'm installing an auxiliary fresh tank with no more then 3 feet of 1/2" inlet suction hose BUT THE PUMP WOULD BE ABOUT 6 INCHES HIGHER then the auxiliary tanks outlet, so the pump would have to lift about 6 inches max when the water level is near the bottom portion. QUESTIONS: Are those typical fresh water demand pumps (Mines a Shur Flo 35116 or something like that) capable of lifting maybe 6 inches???? Even if so, its not going to loose prime each time and have to pump back up each use???? Would an inline check valve on the suction side be required or of any use??? I guess once I hook it up (if mounted in current location) it will be easy to find out the answer lol. There's just no place to mount it so its higher then the pump grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr John T Plumbing just aint my cup o tea
  4. Could someone tell me if the water pump is supposed to make a lot of noise when I turn on the faucet? It sounds rough. Thanks so much! Maggie
