Problem with Sanitizing Fresh Water Tank

Hi,

I'm doing a mid-season sanitizing of my fresh water tank. No problems were encountered for the original sanitizing.

Problem is, when I turn on my water pump to run water through the lines, the water is actually coming out the city water connection - this shouldn't be happening. I almost exclusively use water from the fresh water tank. I've only once used a city water connection.

Any ideas what I can try or check?

Thanks,

Steve

Changed how I was searching for answers to this problem and found what I was looking for .... there's a check valve inside the city water connection that's usually the cause. Time to go find it and see what can be done .....

Often a prod with something not too sharp will jiggle the jumper and free it up so it seals. Can also be due to debris lodging between the valve faces and in that case reconnecting town supply might blast it clean.

There was a little water filter which I removed, and saw a plastic lever. All I had to do was turn on the water pump, water started poring out and pushed and moved the plastic lever until water stopped coming out. I then went inside and turned the water pump off/on a few times to ensure water had stopped coming out the city water connection. Easiest fix on my RV.
