I own a Caliber 47 with two water tanks
which lead to strainers and then to a T where we can choose which tank to use and then onward to my water
pump and accumulator tank etc. Problem number #1: one of my water tanks
(forward water tank) is sucking in so much air no water is coming out (water tanks are full). Is there a leaking valve outside the tank or a problem with the footvalve? How do I check where this air is being sucked in? I have tightened and checked all fittings around the strainers and T.
Problem #2: when I run the pump on tank #2 pressure is good no air at all but after I shut down the faucet the pump stops promptly only to do a quick periodic boost for the rest of the time. This might indicate a small leak and yes I think the bilge pump
has come on as well once in a while.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks Vincent
