Sorry

I do not know the brand or model number. I held on to it for about two months (even had a photo of the name plate) but just threw it away about three days ago

I'm on my second Shurflow. The problem is the same, the check valve leaks allowing water into the fresh water tank...mine was not covered under warranty.

Glad to hear your new pump solved the problem, Rutterslo. My new pump (courtesy of ETI) is in the mail. In the meantime, my fresh water tank is open to drain out, so no overflow. I just need to get my mobile RV tech to come and in install the water pump. I'm going to take CPAharley2008's advise and disconnect every so often to check my lines. I'm not sure if a pressure reducer would've solved by problem, but it can't hurt to have one. More shopping!

True, having any regulator (instead of not having one at all) can't hurt, as far as protecting the plumbing is concerned. It can be annoying if the regulator doesn't work properly - I've had them judder (rapid pressure fluctuations), and with most of them you can't tell what (if anything) they are doing to the pressure.

You can get a regulator for a few dollars, and you can probably get a high-quality one for twenty bucks or less. My suggestion: get one that can be adjusted to the desired pressure, and that has a gauge showing the result. I have a Valterra adjustable regulator, and it has worked well. It was about CA$70, but worth it to me.

Update on Water Pump

Just a quick update on my issue with the Shurflow water pump. ETI sent me a replacement water pump Friday, and I received it today, Saturday. It is not a Shurflow; it is an Artis. I've attached a photo of the new one installed. It fits in approximately the same space.

(The only difficulty was in finding the right square head screwdriver.)

So far, so good. No leaks.

My Shurflo is original. Eight years old.
I only turn it on when I want water. Turn it off after I've got water.
Don't know if that makes any difference.

Glenn that is exactually how we use pump . I believe because your pump is ,and you are going to like this , younger 2008 ? Ours started with 2013 . My theory is because they are making RV's all over the place , they are now junk . I have a Shurflo for my water distiller which is , same pump , brings water to sink and frigerator now since 1994 . 22 years . 3 pumps Glenn since Nov 2013 now with trailer . Pat
