I thought I had this solved
. I was always getting the water
pump running and not stopping. No leaks
in the system downstream of the pump. I finally redid all the connections in the intake side and the run-on pump and spitting stopped. The water
pump would suck air from tiny gaps in the intake side of the plumbing
and run continuously. Repairing the connections fixed that.
Until now. I think it put air into the system this time by running the water tank dry. But I've run about 200 gallons through since then and I still get spitting, gurgling, and some pump run-on (where the pump continues to run with no water flowing). I think I have air in the system, including the hot water tank, but running 200 gallons thru should have cleared the air out by now.
I have a new flo-jet pump, a new 1 gallon accumulator tank, a 6 gallon hot water tank. The water storage
is the lowest point of the system and the hot water tank is the highest point of the system. I have a brass check valve on the input side of the hot water tank and a check valve at the output of the storage
Again, the system worked very well for several months until I ran the water tank dry, sucking up air into the system.
How do I get the air out of the system?
