    Water leak

    I woke up this morning to a major water leak. I called Jerry at customer service for permission to check it out. I found the inlet screen on my flow jet pump had blown apart. Since I have 3 filters in line I decided to take the screen out and connect quick connect directly to pump. I couldn't see any reason for the screen to pop.

    I would recommend replacing the screen. It protects the pump diaphragm.

    FWIW...something like this happened to an attendee at the Rally. We were on FHU but they had the Kantleak selector set for Normal (pump supply) instead of city supply and it eventually blew the inlet screen off the pump, soaking everything in the basement and underbelly.

    I checked that first. I took a black highlighter to the selections so I could read them right after I got this. It looks like one of the clips was loose

    Om my 303 I got a thick piece of plexiglass and cut it to fit where my plywood wall hides all my water lines, the back of my Kantleak valve and pump in the storage area. Now while I am camping I can just take a look with my flashlight to see everything in that area is ok and that I have nothing leaking. I was able to get a piece of plexiglass from a skating rink that they use above the dasher boards. Nothing in my storage area is going to break that piece.

    That is a great idea! I'm going to have to do that. It's a real pain to unload the storage area and remove the access panels if you just want to take a quick look. Thanks for the tip. Any chance you could post a pic?
