Solution that usually works.
Disconnect city water line.
Open one hot and cold faucet until pressure is released
Assuming you still have some water in FW tank
turn on pump and allow water to run for a few seconds.
Shut off faucets
Shut off pump.
reconnect city water.
The reverse flow valve in the pump can seat incorrectly if water pump and city water both on or can pick up a piece of debris. This should clear it and re-seat it.

I had a technician look at it recently and he took the air escape valve off and it was not plugged. He did shorten the air relief line so it could "drain" easier. I drained the tank below the air escape line, but today I noticed that water was coming out of the line. The tank was full again. I also noticed water in the compartment and it was coming from the hose that is used to pump antifreeze into the lines.
So my questions are: 1) Anyone else had this issue and if so how did you fix it? 2) Could water from the City Water line near the water pump be feeding back through the pump into the fresh water tank?
Any insight would be appreciated!!
