Fresh water system

I have commissioned the fresh water system on a 34 Mainship Trawler.
The system is working however the I canít get water to the galley sink.
The pump and system seems to be running well.

Welcome aboard. If you have water at other locations it could be an aerator on that faucet t hat is plugged up.

No cold water, no hot water or none of either? Do you have water everywhere else?

Have you looked under the sink for shutoff valves?

Look for any piping that could contain an air bubble because your onboard fresh water pump will not have enough push to purge a bubble.

Also, commission only one faucet or outlet at a time to maximize your pressure.

I've done this, Put your mouth over the faucet outlet and suck. THat will often pull a bubble to a point it will continue to vacate.

You may get a mouthfull of water of course, SUCCESS.
