OK no I haven't opened the cold & hot to the water heater as I was sanitizing & thought I read not to sanitize the water heater? I'm done sanitizing but need to dump the tanks before I add more water to the freshwater pump & close the by pass to the water heater.

All other valves are the way they should be. Only the leak from the check valve on the city water inlet drips occasionally. I hope to pick 1 up soon I would imagine that I can pick it up at home Depot plumbing section.

I will look into the accumulator as that sounds ideal. & I know weight can add up fast that is why I want to dump the tanks before I try the water heater. Thanks guy's. Learning alot

Have you tried hooking up a water hose to the city water and run a little. there may be some calcium or piece of debris that needs to be flushed out and then it may spring back fine.

Yes I did that first before I filled the fresh water tank. It's a slow leak but will make the pump turn on occasionally .

Take your pump apart and clean thoroughly.
