If the pump does not completely stop after the water is shutoff, you may have another problem.
Charlie,
Did you install an accumulator? All of my connectors are clamped with that special hand cripping tool.

How often do you camp off grid and water connection? You don't need the pressure tank if that happens less than 25-30% of your nights.

WATER PUMP PROBLEM-Need Help!

Dan,

The pump has screw on connectors. You won't have to remove the Pex connections unless you have to for the room. Just get a Shurflo accumulator tank from Amazon.

Dan, I used the same accumulator as Charlie & Sara, only I had to replace my fractured plastic anti-reflux valve (I used a slightly larger brass one), so I had even less room than you did. I placed my accumulator along the wall, by cutting into the PEX and used shark bite connectors.

Our local Menards sells PEX fittings which are press on, reusable and compatible with the plastic tubing commonly used buy trailer makers.

Good to know. I've seen them, just never used them.

Thanks,

My water pump will not shut off with the faucet, it will pump water. It is a casita. What do I need to replace?
