There is a valve underneath the coach, same area as the back passenger wheel. Periodically I notice water dripping from it, why?


If it is a big valve it is your sewer tank drain valve. There is two valves. One is the Black water drain and the other is the gray water drain. the black water drain comes from the toilet holding tank, and the gray water valve drains the shower and sink holding tank.

I have an insinkerator hot water dispenser with stainless steel tank, and the tank is now leaking. I'm wondering if it can be fixed or needs to be replaced


Replace water heater if tank wall is leaking.
These things have short warranty period.
Stainless steel will theoretically last longer, but steel tank water heaters have replaceable anode rod to prevent rust-out.

Be sure to recycle the old metal.

Aircompreser has water in it why


All compressors, no matter where you are, will get water in the tank over time. When you compress air, it's ability to hold water vapor, usually measured as humidity, drops and the water condenses in the tank. All air compressors have a valve on the bottom of the tank so you can periodically let the water out so the inside of the tank doesn't prematurly rust through.

Started humming periodically when using hot water and tankis filling up with cold water


Usually when a tank is making noise, it means the tank needs to be cleaned out or flushed.
I wrote a page with diagrams showing how to clean out a tank, and how to flush the tank.
Page shows gas and electric water heaters.
See if this helps:

We have a Rheemglas Standard Electric Water Heater 81V400 B and it's leaking water from the tank and also the hot water only lasts for a short period of time. I've been reading and have read that the water...


if your water heater is leaking from the tank, and not around any fitting, then you will need to replace the heater.
you can flush the heater, once a year is always recommended, however once every 2 years is sufficient.

scale, and deposites inside the tank will cause erosion and eventually eat through the walls of the tank. not much you can do to prevent this. the steel in the new tanks just don't last like they ued to.

I have a puddle of water under my Rheem gas water heater. I clean up the water and then it puddles up again. I can not find the source of the water leak.


Depending on age, your tank may be rusted through. Different mineralization of the water can ****** or speed up a tank failure. Most water heaters have at least a 5 year, many a 10 year warranty but none will last forever, 'glass lined' or not.

Problem with Convertible Jet Pump 3/4HP RedLion - drawing water 300' from lake to cabin - when the pump is on it holds 50# pressure by itself but when tap is turned on the pressure drops to 30# then you...


If I understand you correctly this is what you have:

- A pump that draws water from a lake 300 feet from lake to your cabin (I assume the pump is at the cabin)

- The pump kicks on to maintain pressure in a tank that distributes water to faucets in the cabin. The pump only turns on to pressurize the tank when water is being used (I am assuming).

- When you turn on tap, pressure in the pressure tank drops to 30 psi, then you hear water sucking from the tank to tap and flow stops at tap. Then the pump finally kicks back on and pressures tank to 23 psi.

- The pump is not used regularly.

If water flow stops when the pressure tank is reading 25 psi, then likely the real pressure is 0 psi and pressure gauge is reading wrong. If this gauge is tied into a switch that starts and stops the pump, then this is probably your problem. You may have partial blockage in your pressure gauge/switch that is causing gauge to move too slowly to keep up with the actual pressure changes when water is being used. Ore the pressure gauge/switch may be broken. Pressure gauges are notorious for reading pressure when there is none. If you can unplug the pump and disconnect the pressure gauge/switch and check for blockage in the ports you should start there. You mentioned that this worked good for the last two summers, if if sits unused for long periods, it could promote bio-growth, rust and/or sediment in the connection to the pressure gauge. If you find blockage, remove it and flush it out. Reinstall the pressure gauge/switch and try it again.

One other possibility is clogged strainer(s) / filter(s) in the water lines. It would not hurt to pull and check/clean any strainers / filters in the system including before the pump. I would even check at the lake for a strainer where the water enters the suction line to the cabin.


I would not assume that the pump is the problem yet.

Hope this helps.

Water tank noise


Hi.

I'm presuming this is in the wrong section.
If it is, and you are talking about toilet or cold water tank cisterns, you cannot add a pipe. Water reg's won't allow it.

What you can do is replace the valve with a silent one. These may also be "fast fill" or "torbec valve" - and do not dribble water for long periods.

Hope this helps.
