Need advice flow from tank to pump


Recommended Posts

not sure exactly what you mean but the weight of the water will push water out of the hose before it gets to pump not fast but that is what the pump is for . If you are not getting water out of the hose before the pump you must have a blockage

Iv got over half tank it's nt blocked and I haven't turned it off the flow comes out if I put pipe at angle but as soon as I raise it slightly it doesn't flow. Iv been on hours tryin to fathom it out as it has been working ok for ages now so can't understand why it stopped

Have you got an inline filter, and is it blocked?


And if you unplug the pipe from your pump to your hose reel, is water coming out of there OK?

Would make any difference if rubber seal on tank cap isn't on?


no, water is coming out so slowly it shouldn't cause a problem. you can tell if it is creating a vacuum, cus when open tank lid you'd hear the air rushing in.

most tank lids are vented also.... but you will tell when open lid either way.


we had problems when filling, we fill tank from IBC at about 100 litres an hour, nearly blew our old tank up!
