Re: A55: fresh water pump system : Beam IV

Just a thought. 
If you have a leak on the suction side it will allow air to enter the water pipes and this won't compress enough to reach the shut off pressure.

I gave you all of my ideas. Like I said before I don't think the accumulator tank pressure has anything to do with a continuous running pump.

Hello Joerg & Bill,

Who ever thought you’d need a bicycle pump on a boat , but you do!

We bought this fancy cycle pump in Bonaire ( the old fashion type would be better ) pumped up the accumulator and we have water!!


The pump is still running continuously though any ideas on that one?

Very best regards & thanks ..

In my experience, there has to be nothing wrong to create this condition.   I’ve had this happen on my boat when I get back after many months away.  Or if the tank was run very low.   Pump up the tank and see whether it works.  Cheers. Joerg
