Re: Full Tank very fast
Witch model do you have, for some models thats normal on others its not, some run the water over hot coils and it evaporates others the water goes into a holding tank and sits their til the tank fills up then you must empty. expect more water when high humidity or in the summer
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

check the calibration of the sender unit as may actually be on empty. Find out the exact capacity of the tank and add a known amount of fuel and see where the gauge reads. For example if the tank is 60 ltrs or 20 gallons add 5 gallons and see where the gauge reads. 5 gallons in 20 gallons should read 1/4 or in your case after the engine stops should read 1/4 full. If it reads 1/2 then the sender is out.
If the RO is not shutting off and there is no water from tank there are several things to check. 1. The product water tank is probably low on air. The tank may be full but no water will come out. Put enough air in tank to force out all the water then reset air pre-charge to 7psi for 3 gallon tank. 2. The capillary tube / check valve of RO system is bad. This puts back pressure on membrane to help create water. 3. The Automatic shutoff is not working, causing the unit to run constantly. I would have to know what model RO it is to narrow down the problem further. Depending on the Membrane production 10, 25 gpd, etc. and the TDS of water it may take 24 hrs to fill the tank. RJ
If you are trying to descale it of all the mineral build up. The easiest way is to mix a 50/50 1 gallon solution of Distilled White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water and pour it in the empty tank. Allow it to sit for a couple of hours (Longer if it's really scaled) . Then turn it ON and run it, until the tank is half empty. Then empty the remaining solution and fill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and run until it's empty. In the future, it's better to use Bottled Distilled Water, rather than tap water.
Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
The sputtering may be caused by a calcium build up the water system. To solve the problem do the following.
Turn the unit OFF and unplug it.
Empty any remaining water from the tank.
Mix a 50/50 solution of Distilled White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Pour solution into the tank and allow it to sit for 1 - 2 hours.
Plug the humidifier in and turn it ON. Allow it to run until the tank is only half full. If the sputtering has not stopped, turn the unit OFF and allow the unit to soak over night.
The next morning, turn the unit On and run for 20 minutes. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it. Pour out the remaining solution and refill with Bottled Distilled Water. Run the unit for an hour. This will flush out the lines. After that, it should run normally.
I would highly recommend using Bottled Distilled Water in the future, rather than Tap Water.
With the information you've provided, one cam only imagine that you are obviously over filling the tank.
So this leads me to suspect that maybe (just maybe) your gas gauge is saying you are on empty, or 1/4 tank or a 1/2 tank whatever, etc. And you are wanting to make sure it is full.
I presume it always says this and that perhaps you need to have the sending unit replaced inside your fuel tank.
Otherwise, if all things are in working order and you meant to say that the Pump Nozle that the service station uses (where you fuel up) is not shutting off when your tank is full.
One of two things are happening,
In the case of a pump handle that has an auto lever, either they have a faulty pump nozle, in which case you need to talk with them about this.
It is a manual Nozle, in which case you are holding the lever personally and are over filling your tank...
It would be advisable to look up the total fuel capacity of your tank and make a note of approximately how many gallon are in it before fueling up.
This way, if you know there are say around 5 gallons and you have an 15 gallon tank.
Adding even 10 gallons you would be running the risk of over flowing since you are only estimating say 5 gallons at the beginning, maybe it is 5 1/2 or even closer to 6. Therefore only about 9 gallons could be added without over flowing...
Hopefully you'll have found something useful in this.
The humidifier may be clogged with a calcium scale build up. Especially, if you use well water or your municipal water supply has a high chemical content.
To solve this problem do the following. Mix a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water (enough to fill the tank). Empty any water that is currently in the tank and fill it with the 50/50 solution. Allow at least one hour, before turning the unit ON. After turning it ON place you hand in front of the mist nozzle to see if any mist is being generated. If it's generating mist, allow it to run until the tank is 3/4's empty. Then turn the unit OFF, unplug it and empty the remaining solution. Refill with Bottled Distilled Water and run until the tank is empty.
If the unit did not produce mist after one hour of soaking, allow it to set over night and then follow the procedure above. Generally, an overnight soaking will do the trick. In the future, I recommend using Bottle Distilled Water rather than your tap water.
Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.
It may be clogged with mineral scale. Empty the water that you now have in the tank and refill it with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Let it soak for several hours and then turn the unit ON. If it starts working as it should. let it run another 5 minutes, turn it OF and empty the tank. Refill the tank with Bottled Distilled Water and allow it to run at least 45 minutes to flush the system. After that, if you do not detect any vinegar odor, you can continue to use the remaining Distilled water.
If the unit didn't work as it should have after several hours of soaking. Turn the unit OFF and let it soak overnight. If this solved the problem, I would recommend that you continue to use Bottled Distilled Water for normal operation, rather than tap water.
The amount of water in any toilet bowl is determined by its construction and no tank adjustment will ever change that. American Standard has a history of having small water surface areas in their low or ultra low flush toilets. Take a large container of water and pour directly into the bowl. If the ending level remains the same, then that is the manufactured level for your toilet.
Not all tanks completely discharge all of the water when flushed. Measure 1.5 gallons of water into a container. Turn off your water supply to the toilet then flush normally. Replace the water in the tank with your premeasured amount and observe this new water level. You might be surprised to find it is at the same level it always is. Since water weighs more than 8 pounds per gallon, one concept used in todays toilets is to have more than 1.5 gallons of water in the tank and use the extra weight push the water past the flapper at a faster rate while designing the flapper to drop after only 1.5 gallons have passed through.
Sorry if this gets posted twice. I have a 95 Saab 900, which I just acquired. I can get only about 4 or 5 gallons in at a time. The best analysis I found was this one where the man pinpoints a stuck valve in the gas tank, and tells of what he did to address it.: http://www.quasimotors.com/9_5_gas_fill_prob.htm
