Water pump is malfunctioning!

by Vicky

I am a relative newbie to caravaning, but am confused by the water pump. It's a submersible type and has always functioned well in the past.

However, when I set up up today I followed usual process, then when I turned on the pump, the water all came spluttering out at the source, i.e. where the pipe from water barrel connected to caravan.

Any ideas of what's going on and how I could fix it would be gratefully received.

Thanks, Vicky

I had this problem and found that the pump
spindle had seized. A gentle tweak with pliers
cured the problem.

Hi, it could possibly be the O ring that makes the seal with the van connection. If so you just need to replace it.

All the best hope this helps.
