Cleaning sediment cup on water pump

Ok I'm curious...wanna take a look at sediment cup on water pump. Water is currently in fresh water tank. Cold faucet turned on but pump is off. If I take off that cup am I going to have water everywhere or just what's in cup? Just thought I'd inspect and clean it if need be. Thanks!

I'm with Tom pretty sure it would be shower time. Best to dump the fresh water tank first...

Thanks Carol and Hambone! I will wait till I get home to check the sediment cup. Just thought i might do a few little maintenance things while camping here.

Instead, I think I'll have a beer.

Cheers!

Wendy

After returning from camping and a nice dry water tank, I did take the sediment cup off to inspect. Just a little bit of water was all...just what remained in the cup after the tank drain. Glad I did so: was some plastic shavings in there...looked like possible remnants from cutting the water line tubing during my trailer's build. Thanks very much to all!
