Re: Water pump accumulator tank
Hi Martin,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
the flat mounting brackets which are welded onto the accumulator tank sometimes create pinholes which allow air to leak. The bladder contains the initial smooth flow of water that is released when you open the taps , then the pump kicks in via the pressure switch on the side of the tank. No air pressure inside the tank then no smooth flow of water.
It is possible to purchase a new tank, I was never able to successfully seal the pin holes on my original tank.
Reya the pump manufacturers, are worse than useless in terms of support or technical help, I agree with Richard, much easier to remove the original and replace it. You will be surprised just how much extra space it will give you in the engine room. You need to choose a pump man enough to withstand the back pressure once you have the system full of water and working.
All the well known manufacturers have something suitable in their range at a fraction of the cost of your current pump. From experience it pays to buy two of them!
