Hose drip when hooked to city water

Have a constant drip from this hose when hooked to city water. Cannot find a cutoff valve? Any ideas?

is your water tank full, or overfilling? this looks like an overflow tube...

or

it's one of your 'Low Point' drains that is not closed tight

If the back flow valve in the water pump is not seated well the city water will fill the FW tank and eventually come out the overflow. Try the following

Disconnect city water.
turn off water pump if on.
Open faucet and let it run until water stops
turn on water pump allow water to come out faucet.
Shut off faucet and allow pump run until it stops
shut off water pump
reconnect to city water.
You should also drain some of the FW tank.

To prevent this from happening, do not use water pump when connected to city water.

Flybob has it covered very well.
Of course if it continues then the back flow preventer (check valve) will probably need to be cleaned out or replaced.
