The Pressure Water Pump
in my boat
seems to not be working.
When I winterize the boat
for winter, the pump
was working fine. To winterize, I emptied the water
system and poured three or four gallons of antifreeze
(the one for water
systems), then run it through the lines.
As I am now trying to de-winterize and flush the antifreeze
out, I can hear the Pressure Water Pump
working, but there is very little pressure (I filled the tank again), just a little more than a trickle, albeit constant.
I am really not familiar with water pumps, so I am not even quite sure where to start. Does it sound like the pump
is gone? The pump is almost new. What can it be the problem? Can pumps be fixed or is it common to simply replace them when they start showing issues?
