Hello. My name is Tan.

Do you hear the water pressure pump coming on?

Have you checked the filter just before the pump?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I dont hear it

Where the s it located
Expert:  Tan replied 4 months ago.

Look for a switch in the panel or in the galley to turn the water system pump on.

If you don't hear the pump this is why it doesn't have any water pressure.

The switch in the panel is on is it possible this boat has another
Expert:  Tan replied 4 months ago.

No that means you have a blown fuse or the water pump has failed. You need to check for a tripped circuit breaker.

I can't tell you where this would be as the boat is new to me. I just know how systems work.

Expert:  Tan replied 4 months ago.

The pumps don't usually trip a breaker unless they are failing so the next step would be to check for voltage at the pump. If no voltage then we know it is a breaker. If voltage at the pump then we know the pump is the problem.

If you have the owners manual it will guide you to the circuit breakers.

SeaRay used to put these manuals online and I could access them and was able to help customers. But they quit doing that as they want you as a customer to go to them.

I wish I could do more but my hands are tied.

If I can help in any way that is helpful to you let me know.

Thank you.......Tan

Pump works. Went into bilge and it is running when water is turned on. This boat is new to me Is there a valve that needs to be turned for the water to flow thru the system
Expert:  Tan replied 4 months ago.

There shouldn't be. Is there a filter before the pump? Was the water tank empty? Is there water in the tank now? Did your bilge pump keep coming on after filling the water tank?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
The water pump only comes on when I turn the water on. Tank is full. No on the bilge
Expert:  Tan replied 4 months ago.

Ok you have a clogged filter or the screens on the faucets are clogged if they have them. Do all the faucets do the same thing?

Hot and cold?
