that I believe has air lock in the water lines. I've read everything I can find online but still have it. Basically at this point I can drain the tank (though the low point valves) to 19% then draining stops. If I fill the tank to 100% (or any other level), I get no water, period, through the faucets, etc. I do get water if I plug a hose into city water. I tried holding the flush handle open and flushing a number of times as some people have suggested but I still have air lock. No water out of the faucet, shower, or toilet, period. And once the tank is at 19%, it won't even drain out of the tank. How do I clear the air lock? Some people have said to suck on a line but I have no idea what line they are referring to. Perhaps one either side of the pump behind the toilet? I did try sucking the one to the left of the pump to no avail. I obviously am hesitant to disconnect anything near the Alde as sucking glycol would not be a good idea! How do I get the pump primed and/or get the air lock out? And once I do that, how do I prevent that from happening in the future? For now, though, I am most concerned about getting the water flowing again.
