Water Pump Issues

Recommended Posts

I have a Crystal Maxi pump which plugs into the side of the caravan.

Not the best piece of kit, there are 2 retaining clips that have to be turned to hold it into position. Maybe it's worn but I have to ensure that the unit is pushed in hard and the retaining clips are also pushed in hard to take out ant slack. It would seem that the clips are an interference fit designed to do this or is it that my unit is just worn.

I also notice that after a lot of pump activity the vibration of thye pump causes the cover cap to move back up the pipe thereby leaving a gap for dirt to enter the Aquaroll.

Are these common problems?

It may be that the 'O' ring on the plug is a special size and may only be sourced from a caravan shop.

I used an 'O' ring from a multi-set and it was tight fit .

Proper ring is OK.

Dont know about vibration.

It sounds like a new pump required. Maybe the impeller has worn out.

Yeah you're probably right but the Truma Crystal Maxi Pump is the one that they show in my Lunar handbook.
