Fresh water fill

Allegro bay 36 tdb. Water runs out of fill tube but panel only shows 1/3 full . Dosent feel like enough time to fill but it cant put in any more. Could it be a bad sensor? Any remedy?

One way to see if it is full or a bad sensor is to drain the tank into a 5 gallon pail using your outside faucet. Then compare the gallons drained to the capacity of the tank.

If you mean the gravity fill you should have an overflow line. On my older Allegro it had an overflow line that had a plug in it to make sure air and excess water came out. Before I realized what it was my tank would overflow out the gravity fill. As a newbie at the time I couldn't figure it out. That's why we were all newbies.
