What is the flow like with just cold and just hot at each of the faucets? Do they flow evenly or does the spurting happen? Does the water system behave the same when on the onboard pump as it does connected to city water?
When turning cold on (if heater is off and no hot available) it will spurt if its just being turned on, then normally runs steady but lately has been running out of pressure as though the system is filling up some amount somewhere then running out. No fluidity.
Pump is off.
When trying to run the hot/cold at the same time to get a medium water there is alot of spurting and it seems that they are competing for dominance ive tried to not do this too much if it strains the system when trying to find a medium as i dont want to dmg something if its not working right.
The water is hooked up to city and i have to turn it off/on at the actual outside connection because of a leak in the kitchen sink faucet that drops water continously. Dunno if the current issue of lack of pressure is related to the fact that i have to constantly turn the water on/off for each use but it didnt seem to matter before.
When i find that there is no pressure, i can either turn all faucets off or leave them on and wait until i hear this loud groaning noise then i know pressure has resumed i dunno how to explain it but it feels as though water struggling to squeeze thru a pipe or something
thanks again for all the help.
edit: id also like to add that this may also happen when the hot water heater is turned off as well. i cannot say with 100% certainty that it does but i do recall turning the water on from the outside, running the cold water then running into this same pressure problem.
