So the water
pump was crazy loud and Jabsco
seemed agreeable about a warranty claim given my concerns voiced in another thread
But I disconnected the water
hoses and set it up so it pumped through short hoses into and out of a bucket. Ran like a dream. Beautiful. As quiet as I could reasonably expect.
Then I reconnected the hoses from the water tanks
and to my pressurized system.... it ran quietly, until water reached the pump and pressure was restored, when it again made a hell of a noise
. Just to be sure, I again disconnected the system and then reprimed it. The same result.
The pump is good for a 10' priming distance. It is at least that, from the pump to the bottom of my water tank, though admittedly maybe a foot or two beyond.
I asked around. Some suggested the pump is too far from the water tank. Others that there might be a leak in the system allowing air in.
Appreciate it if anyone has a thought; it might save my marriage.
PS. Water pump is a Jabsco
