DCKiefer Posted March 30, 2009 Share Posted March 30, 2009 I found away to stop the water hammer that sometimes occurs when drawing water from the storage tank. If you look at the instruction for winterizing the water system, the procedures will describe two valves that are used in this process. Once you are familar with these valves here is what you do. Access the water pump compartment, turn on the pump switch at the sink. Next turn the valve that is on the blue water line coming off if the water tank, this is not the one right next the pump with the white hose. When you turn this valve the pump will come on and you will here water circulating. The water is circulating back into the tank. What I belive this is doing is getting rid of air trapped in the pump or in the bypass line. After the pump has run for about a minute return the valve to the normal position. You should now have a smooth and quite water pump, if the water level in your tank is adequate. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
