Fresh Water Plan for Palomino PUP

I got some parts today so I drew up a plan for the fresh water.

Any inputs or comments would be appreciated.

Thanks Dick

You can only fill the tank with pressurized city water.
Normally, the city water supply to the faucet(s) bypasses the pump. You may not get any flow through the pump when hooked up. I don't know - maybe someone else does.
I suggest that you install a line for gravity fill and have the city water bypass the pump. The pump has a check valve.

OK so here's plan 2. I find if I need to be carefull with something than it will at some time happen and I have stuff to fix.

BTW That faucet has the pump built in and it also handles the City Water input.

I just came across your plan. I wanted to improve my water setup as well. In the end, I kept city and tank water separate, but added a 12v demand pump. I removed the hand pump and replaced it with a hot and cold faucet - hot for city and cold for 12 volt demand pump. It is working well (excuse to pun).

see water pump and faucet advice for more details.
