    Have an external pump which has starting hunting ,this stops if tap on full with diminishing pressure as you go further from tank , ie from kitchen to toilet to shower, where it hunts all the time with poor pressure. Was fine previous, suction pipe is well below water level.Appreciate suggestions, van two years old. Thanks.

    Try adjusting the pump pressure..

    there is a an adjusting screw on the end of the pump.. clockwise will increase the cut out pressure.. use small increments, testing after each adjustment..

    this vid shows how to do it

    Many thanks, appears to have fixed the problem, unfortunatly pump was fitted facing the tank with adjuster not accesable, but was able to unscrew pump and lift up while remaining connected . Once again obliged.

    He's dead Brian, buried somewhere near to the North= South Korean border. Couldn't find him if I tried. :(
