What a pain in the who ha to replace the water pump.

Ours went south and WW sent out a replacement. Looking
at the placement of the (4) mounting screws, it appeared that
it was installed at the factory prior to the placement of the
sink and counter top. It was very hard to access those (4)
screws and then reset them.

I could only get one arm in under the sink....

Is there any adjustment for flow on the water pump? Our water pump pulses when the shower is on. I am trying to troubleshoot. Thanks

A surging pump usually means an air leak in the system. Many times the toilet is the culprit.

The water pump will turn off and on while the shower is running, this is normal, at least if you have the shower water turned down while conserving. There is no adjustment on the pump. And, if you have the water shut off in the middle of a shower, you will still hear the pump cycle every so often. All normal.

I am used to it turning on and off when you shut the water off at the head in the middle of the shower. This is pulsing while the shower is turned full on. It doesn't do it when the kitchen faucet is turned on all the way. Any other suggestions where to look? How do you diagnose an air leak in the system? I though maybe the air tubes to the water tanks were pinched or something.

It's a bad placement, for sure,of a fixture that will,as you found, occassionally need service. I was considering moving the pump to the emty cabinet just inside the door next to the furnace. The piping could easily be run through the steps to under the sink. It would then also provide easy access to winterize when needed.

Sandjunkie, it does sound like you have air in the system somewhere. Particuarly since it's ok at the kitchen sink, directly above the pump.
You might try this. Bleed the system starting at the drain hoses below the basement, then the outside shower. Be sure to have at least 1/4 tank of water. Turn on the pump to pressureize then open the drain valves and then the outside shower. See if any air comes out. As a side note:if you ever need to winterize do not forget to drain the outside shower hose. That cheapo plastic faucet will destruct with the slightest frost. Happy Trails!!

There is a screw on the head of the pump that will adjust the cycling of the pump.

Excuse my ignorance, but what is the head of the pump and what do you mean by "cycling". Thanks
