If that is a Jabsco y-valve it could be leaking from one side to the other. They sell rebuild kits that are almost as expensive as a new valve. Rather than deal with a crappy valve I just replaced...

I can't even read this thread now. To post this I had to immediately hit reply before the ads could load. Does the IT staff even look at these problems?

I found this in the link provided on the 1st page. It's pretty clear with pictorial examples. The ONLY openings allowed are on the top surface of the tank.

Chargerguy;
If the average life span on a Promariner is only 3 or 4 years, can you recommend a brand that lasts longer?
