Old manual pump not working. Inside water reservoir leaking.
So while my beautiful (to me) tiny Burro
is a guest room, I thought I'd 'just' hook up my garden hose to my new Rocket Pump. Then later fix the inside reservoir and toggle between water tank and city water with the same pump.
Did I totally miss the Rocket Pump use?
Is it possible to use it with 'city water'?
I have the hose hooked up, and added a water regulator screw on, and have the hose water turned real low............
the rocket pump won't turn off the water.
In the 'far back' position (which is the 'hold the prime' position, i think) there is the singing pipe noise and continued running water. Is this the sound of more pressure than it can take?
My work-around for now will probably be the same set-up, but with the hose going into a large covered potable-water barrel with a top bung hole...
would the "Rocket Pump" be able to pump from there considering the large diameter of the hose?
and of course I would prefer to be able to use my new Rocket Pump.
and boy, it sure is a TINY work space under that sink!
Thanks so much.
looks great after a wash with BKF. Thanks!)
