Having issue with the Shurflo water pump... basically... lately, it works very intermittently:
- When it works: when I flip the on/off switch it will start the pump (the traditional pump starting up noise) and water will flow normally from the faucet.
When it doesnt work: when I flip the on/off switch, nothing happens (no pump start thus no water etc). Note that it will do this a few minutes after it was successfully working...
There is no rhyme or reason as to how it occurs. When it works, the pump seems to be good.... so I dont think I need to replace the pump(?). I'm leaning toward the idea it must be electrical related given the intermittent nature but... at the pump? or at the switch?... but not so sure. I had seen some leakage around the bottom of the pump at one point... perhaps it has caused a short of some sort??
Things I have tried/checked:
battery voltage is at a good level.
reseated the back flow valve piping (the shiny metal flex pipe that attaches to the water pump).
h20 pump fuse is good
other electrical connections at pump look okay
I would appreciate any ideas on what to check or try or ???
