X's 2 it has happened to me a couple of times just ran the pump by itself and it reset or cleaned the diaphane valve that lets it by pass. Pretty common problem if you have the city running and turn the pump on at the same time by mistake....

Water pump issues

Now my water pump is only working if disconnected from city water. But before the pump froze, it was working both ways. Anyone know what this might be?

help overflowing holding tank

Nothing wrong, as long as the city water is over the set pump pressure usually 40 psi it will not run. Occasionally when at a park the water pressure will drop so low that the pump will run to bring the system pressure back up.

We don't turn our pump on when connected to the city supply, but we always keep at least 1/2 tank of fresh water. We have been in parks and the water got shut off, so we always have a supply for at least a day

X2 - the line is pressurized so the pump (which runs only on demand) won't run. It should be turned off when on city water.
