Water not pumping from the tank

If the pump is primed, water will come out of the tank when the pump is running. It make take a little time for the tank to fill, but you should hear the pump making some noise. An un-primed pump just makes a motor noise, not very loud.

Well Pump Problems The Water Well Tank

2811e7c.jpgOne of the common problems with having a well for you water supply is that you have the maintenance of the water pump and the related things that are necessary to make that all work. One of the most important parts of that system is the water well tank or the water pump tank. This tank is what keeps the well pump from having to turn on and off every time you draw a few drops of water.

In the past the tanks were made with an air valve that injected just a bit of air into the tank every time the pump started. This helped to keep some air in the tank and also gave the annoying problem of air coming out of the faucet at times. To make this better well water pump tanks are now made with a diaphragm that separates the air from the water.
This keeps the water cushion trapped inside the tank. That is great and makes the well tank virtually maintenance free as long as there are not holes in the rubber bladder that separates the water and the air.

There are some easy ways to tell if your well pump tank is not working the way that is should work. And also here are some things that you can do to maximize the capacity of the tank.
  1. Drain all the water pressure out of your system. Then check the air pressure in your tank and adjust it to 2 PSI below the cut in pressure of your pump.
  2. Make sure that your pressure switch is giving you 20 PSI differential between the cut in and the cut out of your pump.
  3. Make sure that your tank is big enough to give you at least 2 minutes run time when your pump starts till it stops.

Now for pressure tank not working
  1. The pump starts and stops rapidly while you are drawing water. This means the bladder has failed in the tank and you have no air in the pressure tank. Replace your pressure tank.
  2. You get a slight hesitation as you are drawing water before the pump. This means that you have too much air in the tank and you need to release some air or increase the cut in pressure on the pressure switch.
  3. If in the summer time you see condensation more than halfway up the side of the tank then you have a bad tank. The tank should never be more than about half full of water. Replace the well pressure tank.

One note to consider. If you are not drawing water and your pressure drops rapidly when the well pump shuts off then it is NOT a pressure tank problem, it is a problem with the check valve in the pump.

This should give you a basic trouble shooting guide to your well water tank or water pressure pump tank.

How do you get mold out of fresh tanks?

There should be a fresh water fill on the outside of the coach. If not then there is a valve that would need to be turned that will allow water to be put into the fresh water tank. If that is the case then it will be a bit more difficult to put bleach into the fresh water tank but not impossible. There will be a pump that draws fresh water out of the tank. You can disconnect the input and output lines. Connect the input line which comes from the fresh water tank to the output side of the pump. Then using a flexible line with a 1/2" pipe thread fitting, connect that to the input side of the pump. Put the loose end of the flexible line into a gallon of bleach and turn the pump on. It will draw the bleach out of the container and pump it into the fresh water holding tank. Now return the plumbing of the pump back to the original configuration. Using the valve system complete filling the fresh water tank with fresh water and allow to sit for a couple of days. Then open the low point drain on the fresh water tank and completely drain. When the coach is not in use make sure the tank is completely drained. There is also a fresh water treatment that you can purchase at your local rv parts department.

Krups FNA2 doesn't draw water!

If it sounds like a pumping noise but louder then it may mean that the pump is bone dry and needs to be primed. You need to find an imaginative way to force water into the socket that the tank engages with. A clear hose of the correct size with water already in it and then press the button and blow into the other end of the pipe. Once the valves are immersed in water it should start to function.

Bought a used Tassimo, is it supposed to make loud noise when brewing?

The water tank is probably not seated correctly.It can look as though it is, but you have to make sure the forward edge of it has been tilted so that the angled indentation in the plastic exactly mates with the machine.If it doesn't, water is not drawn from the tank, the pump makes a noise, and steam comes from the pod area.

Do I have to hook my tank to draw water from my well?

A bladder tank is designed to give a certain amount of gallons of "draw down" before the pump turns on. The pump will work with or without a bladder tank but will come on every time water is used. Well pumps (Jet or submersible) can run for extended periods of time without causing harm to the pump, but a pump that turns on and off constantly will eventually burn out because it is so hard on the pump.
Jet pumps need to keep "head pressure" to efficiently create the vacuum necessary to draw water from the drop pipe, this is partially what a well tank does.

No longer pumps water

I have fixed a couple of them by applying a thin layer of keg lube to the silicone flange underneath the water tank. Remove the bottom cover of the brewer and take out the two screws that hold the flange in place. This is where the pump draws water from the tank. Air can get in at that seal and it won't pump water if that happens. Keg lube will make it seal better. I got mine at Annapolis Home Brew dot com. Hope that helps!
