    Hi
    I'm sure this has come up before but am new to this site.
    Have a shurflow pump (?) on my (new to me) s'hand campervan. Cold water pulses but hot doesn't. I presume that the water heater tank acts as an accumulator for the hot water whereas the cold water has not. Is the solution to fit a small accumulator to the cold or is there something I'm missing or something wrong.
    Any help and suggestions for necessary parts (if needed) appreciated.

    Nick
    P.S. is there an archive section on the site to check previous posts?

    Welcome Nick. Enjoy the forum/site.

    Some water pumps have a pressure switch adjusting screw (often a tiny allen screw hiding behind a sticker) which might allow you to raise the "switch off "pressure point and stop the pulsing.

    But not too much mind otherwise you might spring a leak!

    (I have often done this on my Shureflow pumps.)

    I would suggest an accumulator downstream of the pump if adjusting the pump pressure switch does not work.
