Spray wand - Head

All - This might be because I have no water in the tank, hence very little pressure other than air.

The spray wand in the WC won't quit running putting out water. I looked to see how to take it apart and there is no seam on it to remove it. Does anyone know how this comes apart, I don't want to just hit it with a hammer to remove it.

It might just pull apart but since I don't know, I don't want to just break it to replace it. I believe I can get a replacment at ACE hardware which I'm going to do. That is where the 5th Wheel Alpinlite one came from.

Can't tell you how it comes apart, but you might try soaking it overnight in white vinegar. Activate it once in a while to allow the vinegar to get to the inner workings.

You can leave it connected, just shut off the water source/pump.

If running on is caused by mineral deposits this may help.

Monty:

Without water, there may not be enough pressure to turn off and seat the water valve on the toilet. That aside, the sprayer should turn off.

My sprayer separates near the bottom of the handle, just twists off. If you can get it apart, soaking it in white vinegar, as recommended by Bill, should clear it out. A replacement hose and sprayer are quite cheap from a hardware store. It disconnects at the back of the toilet.

TP - I was thinking the same thing, it needs more pressure than the little water in the line can provide. I will know tuesday since its coming home for restack of smartbeds, and top off the food, water, etc. I have not seam in the handle, so seperating at the bottom appears not to be correct. I will look again, but mine is chrome plastic. Thank you for the reply.

Monty:

At the hardware store, some of the sprayers are permanently attached to the hose. Just as easy to change the whole thing out as futz with it. Probably cheaper than the vinegar anyhow.......

As Takepride said, the sprayer is a common kitchen type only as you noted not removable

the other end of the hose however is the same as the Kitchen one... Just head for the nearest hardware for a replacement, black or white.

Update - the reason it would not shut off was low water pressure. Once I filled the tank, pressured up the system, no leaks. Have a spare wand just in case. Again, there is no seam on the OEM wand head. My guess is a new hose to go with the new wand is what I will need if I ever have to change it.
