sputtering faucet

My kitchen faucet was sputtering and the water pump was cycling and chattering like crazy. Took off the aerator and everything looked ok. Didn't see any dirt or debris at all. Thinking maybe faucet problems, pump problems or kinked hose problems.

Instead I went to Home depot and bought a new aerator for $4.00 and put it in. What a difference, the water flows smooth and no pump chattering. I guess there was dirt or buildup in the old aerator that I couldn't see.

Morale of the story: If your faucet acts up, you probably should just get a new aerator.

Bob, there is also a filter right by your water pump. It is a screen filter inline with the inlet connection. Be sure to keep that clean also.

I use a removable filter on my outside water hose. Never run water into my rv without it. It traps all the junk that the rv parks pump out of their wells which gets into your lines and plugs stuff up.

You can attach these filters to your water hose. Wallmart sells them in packages of 2. I don't leave home without a fresh one. Cheap insurance!

Yes I always use the blue filter whenever I use park water.

I also noted that while the water was coming out full and smooth, it seemed like every couple of seconds it would pulse. It seemed like the pump was taking a breath and then resuming.

Turns out the shurflo pump was needing an adjustment. Used an allen wrench to turn the adjuster 1/4 turn clockwise and the hesitation stopped. Now when I turn on the water, the flow is steady and the pump runs without hesitation.

Cabinetmaker...what about your whole house water filter under the sink in the bathroom? Do you use the blue in-line filter and the house filter? And, before I start going places I shouldn't, where is the 12 volt water pump in your 29MVP? I want to check the screen filter on mine. Thanks!

Ed, the water pump is under the bed. Raise the bed up and you will see a removable panel...pump is there.

No, I do not use the filter under the bathroom vanity installed by Jayco. I refuse to pay the high price for those filters and stand on my head to install or remove. The hose filters I use filters everything well enough coming in so that we don't get contamination in our lines or tanks. For drinking water we use a portable powered water filter that sits on the counter and filters our drinking water and for coffee and tea. Got that at Costco. Have one in stick house also. Works great and you really can taste a difference in clean water.
