Morning all, especially Tellie or Rich Boren.
, first watermaker
. Went to flush it today and discovered a steady stream coming from what appears to be the pump
side of the low pressure pump
. After the flush cycle stopped, the stream dwindled down to a slow drip and I closed the seacock.
This is the manufacturer's plate on the pump:
A shot of the steady leak. In the photo
, it's the white, snot-looking blur coming off the white plastic case (impeller housing?).
This is hard to describe and not a great photo
. There was kind of a foaming, gurgle thing on the top of the white plastic housing, which might be where the leak was originating. This stopped as soon as the flush cycle ended.
Is the pump shot? Is this just a matter of pulling out the pump and rebuilding it with a gasket
set? Advice or recommendations appreciated.
