    oops i did something stupid today-gctid390178

    well today filled fresh water tank today for the first time since it was winterized. inserted hose in tank started filling tank. i turned on the pump and the cold water tap it ran but very little pressure ran hot water tap same very little pressure and the demand pump just kept running. i decided to shut off taps and wait until water tank filled meanwhile demand pump kept running and it was taking a long time to fill a 5 gal tank. i was scratching my head because i could hear water running . i opened engine house and lo and behold drain still open on hot water tank . pump was actually doing a good job in the sink considering i was trying to fill the bilge and the water tank at the same time' shut the drain filled the tank turned on the pump and had great pressure. on a brighter note bilge pump works perfect.op-

          I think this should be moved to Completed Projects. "New 4-in-1 procedure!" Test fresh water pump, flush water heater, clean bilge, and test bilge pump, all while enjoying a frosty-cold adult beverage...

              Not as stupid as a fellow marina neighbor who thought they were filling their water tank and turned out to be his gas tank!
