I've been reabuilding this thing for months and it still leaks!
I have a Raritan
. When I pump it (wet or dry) water leaks
out around the fixture where the joker valve is.
Here's what I've done so far.
New joker valve (greased and silicone around the edges where it contacts the housing...as pre Raritans recommendation).
New line going to my holding tank
. (Goes directly to the tank, no valve)
Confirmed that there is no blockage in the vent.
Added an elbow
to the line going out of the pump to ensure no tension. When I put the joke valve in, the 2 halves of the fixture line up perfectly before even installing the bolts.
Made sure the bolts werent overtightened. Then tried once again reaally tightnening them...since it was still leaking.
recommends a new pump. Said possibly a crack in the body of the pump somewhere. I kind of agree with them...since that's about the only part I haven't replaced at this point.
