Pressure is bleeding back through the pump or system to the tank or well or where ever the water is coming from. Should be some sort of one way valve to keep water from going back to the source, mounted somewhere so that once pressure is pumped up, it will hold that pressure in the part of the system that has the pressure switch that controls the pump.

That or you have a leak where you can't see it. (Actually you do, it is just internal and not leaking outside the pipes!)

Water pump gives a brief burst of "on" every 10 minutes or so even when taps not activated


It could be leaky check valve . The check valve keeps water from run back into the tank. It may be stuck partway open or dirt or scale may be keeping the valve from shutting tight . Hope this helps.

2003 dodge intrepid taps loudly after warmup


your doing good if you have 245000 miles on it,the lifters or tappets loose there prime and flatten out it is not uncommon for dodge to do this.if the engine runs smooth leave it alone.other wise you would have to replace internal parts,u could try to put some tranny fluid in the engine before your next oil change ,only 1 quart though.dont run to long 15 to 20 minutes.if tap does not go away you probly have worn internal parts.not much u can do besides replace lifters,big job.

My unit is a paloma tankless model # PTG-74PVP its throwing error code C4 15 what does this mean? We believe its a flow problem because we hooked up an external pump, it starts out with full flow then...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(common problem so I've pre-typed- just read 'cold'!)
If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Drain washer pump for winter


Turn off the water at the cold and hot taps. Disconnect the hoses from the taps and the washer and drain them. Lay the drain hose flat on the floor to drain it to a container. With the hoses disconnected and the drain hose flat, start the fill cycle (set to WARM) briefly (15 seconds) to open the inlet solenoid valves and allow water to drain from them. Start the rinse cycle to pump any residual water out of the tub and drain (15 seconds).
OR
Turn off water and disconnect inlet hoses as described above. Pour 1 gallon of RV anti-freeze (for potable water systems) into the tub. Start the rinse cycle just enough to start the drain so antifreeze goes through pump and into drain hose. Before using the washer again, run a small rinse through to flush out the anti-freeze.

What is the best way to winterize a standard large capacity washing machine?


If the product will be exposed to sub-freezing temperatures, turn off the water supply to washer, disconnect fill hoses, drain them and reconnect. Remove the drain hose from the standpipe in the wall and place it into a shallow pan at floor level untill the water floe stops. Unplug unit and you are good to go.

If no sub-freezing temps are expected, turn off water supply. Turn on washer for a warm wash cycle for a few seconds to relieve the pressure in the hoses. Turn off machine and unplug it.
