    From your description alone, it is hard to say if the pressure loss is causing the pump to shut down, or vice-versa, but is it possible your pump diaphragm could have gotten damaged somehow? We have replacement diaphragm kits for Flojet quad pumps here, which may be the issue causing your loss of pressure? You can disassemble the pump head to check for visible damage, which would help narrow down which repair parts you need.

Question:

I have the flojet Model R4426143 and it does not keep a constant flow. It is extremely noisy and runs low and fast constantly. If I turn the shower on it sometimes settles down and runs smoothly. Turning on the sink or flushing the toilet it is up and down constantly and very noisy. I am in a Grand Design 5th wheel and the pump was installed last year when I parked it. For awhile it ran very quiet and worked. Something happened. I have checked the water filters and I see no leaks. It looks like bubbles in the water periodically but I see no leaks anywhere. We started out about a month ago so the pump has minimum hours. Any suggestions? 907-232-7474

    Make sure you fresh water tank is full and run a few gallons through your water system, you may have a air pocket.
