    Hi I have a water system built in the back of my van so all the water is purified in there. I run out of water for the first time the other day. Filled it back up and now no water will pump out.
    Is this an air lock some where? I don't know. I did leave the pump on for 20 mins just in case it was a air lock but still no luck. Help please

    if water is getting to the pump, but not coming through then, thats an air lock.
    easiest way to clear it is suck the water though the pump with a piece of hose
