    Hello all

    Quick question...we were having trouble with the water pump picking up the water out of the tank recently until I delved into the tank moved a white 'T' shaped lever into the up position and and it started to draw water... Now what is it for? and what position should it be in normally...:winky:

    Cheers for your help guys and gals :thumb:

    I've not seen one like yours but all tanks need a winter drain ( ours is just a sink plug ) so yours may be a two way valve, up for inside to the pump, down for drain. Just a guess.

    Hi, we have two of these in our tank, but they are Blue. ::bigsmile: If you put it up position and pull all the water runs out onto the ground................:winky: When you push it back in the hole, and put the handle down it expands the rubber plug. But thats my van, yours could be something completely different.:Doh:::bigsmile: Bob.

    Must admit i am the opposite if I see a lever or button have to pull or push it.

    Sometimes wish I had left it alone:Blush:
