Question about Flojet 03526 144A Triplex Diaphragm 3526 Series Automatic Water System Pump

1 Answer

My water pump (flojet03526-144a) is leaking. I use it in my travel trailer. It is leaking from the end where the black pieces are screwed in. How do I stop it from leaking. I have screwed the pieces in as tight as I can get them but it still leaks. Seems to leak worse after I shower. I am running city water and do not have it turned on. The RV park hooked my water up without attaching a water regulator. I have now put the regulator on but the pump is leaking water.

Hi there,
You can use Teflon tape on the threads or get some epoxy glue at an auto parts store,it comes in a clear tube about the diameter of a nickle.It's called block putty.Just take it out and knead it till it turns whatever color the instructions call for.A local hardware store will have the Teflon tape.Try the tape first and make sure the threads are OK.I have used the putty on my water cooler and on leaking pipes under the sink.One time use it to fix an oil leak on an engine in a car.Thank you for choosing FixYa.com.

I always add this for your information. If this is not the solution that you are looking for please re post because when we pick a question to answer FixYa takes it out of the questions.

Rv leaking water under neath


The statement is extremely vague. Is it a travel trailer or a motor coach? Motor coach could be dripping condensation from ac while in use. Is it fresh water and only leaks when connected to a hydrant? Does it only leak when sewage is dumped into the black water holding tank? In short, you must determine under what condition the unit is leaking. Then narrow down where it is leaking from and then identify the failed part. RV manufacturers do not publish plumbing diagrams so it is all visual in the diagnostic process.

Is it leaking at a glued connection or a jam nut connection? If at the jam nut connection you may need to replace the jam nut washer to get a good seal. If it is a glued connection. You may get luck and reseal the connection by swabbing some ABS glue over the leaking area. ABS glue is thick black glue and may be found at your local RV dealership.

You may have mislaid a piece when you took your Bissell apart to clean it after using it the first time.

I experimented with mine to try and reproduce your issue. On the bottom of the water tank, there are two pieces that can be removed from it. One of them looks like a black plug at one end, with a red rubber flange piece on the other end. If you push your finger inside the red rubber piece, you can feel a spring move up and down. This is the first piece you place on the bottom of the water tank. I suspect you have this piece, because if you didn't, water would gush out of the water tank as soon as you turned it over after filling it.

The other piece, which is the one I think you may have have mislaid, is a larger black, plastic ring with screw threads. This piece goes over the top of the first plug piece, screws onto the water tank, and holds the plug in place. The words "RECLOSE TIGHTLY" appear on mine. If this piece is missing, the water tank does not sit flat on the base of the Bissell, but kind of flops around, out-of-place, and the unit will not dispense water properly, though it may leak it.

If ithat piece is gone, it should be possible to reorder it. Start here:
http://www.bissell.com/Customer_Service.aspx

If that's not the problem, if you have all the water tank pieces, I wonder if perhaps you unscrewed one black screw to remove the clear front plastic piece from the base of the unit-- the piece through which water is drawn up off the carpet-- to clean it, and didn't get it back into place properly. Make sure the two hooks at the bottom of this piece are inserted, one per side, into the clear plastic side pieces at the bottom. If the hooks are not secured properly, before trying to reinsert them, unscrew the black plastic screw so you don't break the tab. It's easy to miss getting these one of those hooks back in right, but it's important to do that before trying to screw the clear front plastic piece into place.

Water leak


If you remove the air grill for the inside part you will find four screws which when tightened compress the seal gasket under the outside to roof. It may be a case of these screws being somewhat loose.

Kenmore 2 Way Tumble Action Front Load Washer


no thats two different problems. The rubber piece (boot) forms a seal to prevent the water from leaking out, that should be replaced. Water might have leaked and ruined the pump. At the end of all cycles is there still water in the tub? If so your pump is either clogged or has gone bad, and thats why the washer wont go into extract.
