Water Pump Not Working

Our water pump quit. We checked the screen, ensured the connections weren't leaking. When we took off the screen there was some water that leaked out. Now what? Your insights, as always, are appreciated.

Phil

Remove the aerator from the faucet and clean out any debris, reinstall.
Good chance it will work. Make sure when you take the aerator apart that you pay attention so you can put it back together.
The pump operates just like a gas pump. When it detects back pressure it shuts off. The debris will create back pressure.

That would be good advice, but unfortunately, didn't work. I am stumped.

It might just be out. They are pretty cheap units, and they do fail from time to time. Was it hot to the touch, or just not going on at all? I'd first check to see if there is input voltage and ground.

What is it doing? Do you hear a low droning noise? Have you run it several minutes? May need to clear air.

Hi Phil, if as you say "it quit" and isn't making any sound it may be done as Rob said. From previous posts this is one of three spares I keep on hand. About $80 from Amazon. The other two are the 30 Amp buss fuse and the sail switch for the heater. Those things run equipment I don't want to be stranded without a spare.

If it is totally quiet, you might check the fuse. You probably have, but thought I would mention it just in case

Contact ETI and explain what you've done to diagnose the problem. Mine had a problem that wasn't detected until I hooked up to city water for the first time - - 8 months after picking up "Escaping Reality". I sent an e-mail to ETI and a new pump was in the mail in short order.

Ditto to what OneOlMan said. I contacted ETI when my pump failed and they sent me a new one.

Our pump also quit working in first year and Tammy sent us a new one right away after speaking to her . Also later found a problem with the little filter , the screen cut it open . I replaced with the dome one and have had no problems since . Pat
