    Hi.. youer saying the drain valve is still leaking water , but if you are still have sufficient water in the tank, the pulsing pump will have nothing to do with the leaking drain valve...
    You will have to try and flush the valve by opening and closing it to see if you can shut it fully...
    The pump may just need all the various outlets opened and allowed to run until you get a steady stream of water with no splutters of air coming through...
    Thats what id be trying first..
    Andy..

    Thanks Andy think the drain valve isn't sealing properly because it stops when I turn the pump off I'll try what you said

    If you have a Frost Stat it could be that thats not turned off. Depends on type. Ours you turn the lever on top to reset it then there is a blue button that you have to press in near the base of the unit. I cannot see ours so have to do it by feel.
