A common cause is the calcium, or some other minerals in the water eventually ate through the bottom of the tank. You will need a new tank, or better... A new kettle.

Descaled my kettle with vinegar and it began to leak immediately. The water dripped from the join between the brushed steel and plastic about where the swith is located. I'm sure that scale behaves exactly like ice does in rocks. As the scale builds up joints are gradually expanded so that when descaled the kettle begins to leak. I applied LS-X along the joint line (outside the kettle) over the leaking point and a few inches on either side. Left it all to dry overnight. Two months in and the kettle remains sound.

When i put water in my water jug it leaks out from sumwea n the truck is running hot What could that be


The only other option is , check to see if water pump is bad. you will see a leak from bottom of water pump if it is bad. If water pump is good. Replace the thermostat. Good-Day! And make sure recovery tank is not leaking! or the coolant system is not plugged somewhere.

Tip

PRIMO BOTTOM LOAD WATER DISPENSER, BLINKING LIGHT


We started getting a blinking light... indicating the jug needed replacement... after installing a full jug. The unit would cycle, then the red blinking light would come back on. Upon careful inspection of the feed tube and lines, it was realized that the plastic line on the intake of the pump body had been inadvertently pulled out just slightly (presumably from jostling the jug around during replacement). I believe that this breaks the seal the unit requires for suction, and caused the fault. I simply pushed the (white) plastic line back into pump body and heard an audible 'click'. Unit works fine now. I hope this helps, as these units are not exactly cheap.

Radiator want stay full of water or antifreeze has plastic jug on fender weld


Is there a leak somewhere? There should be green or pink fluid on the ground if there is. The plastic jug is often called the overflow this has level marks on the side of it for when the vehicle is hot and cold, cold is at the bottom end of the jug. The purpose of these marks is so you can see the levels without having to open the radiator. When the engine is cold open the radiator, start the motor and look into the radiator there should be coolant at the top of the opening. If not add coolant while engine is running, note if it's pink it's the DEX/Cool, if green any over the counter coolant will do. Add until the level hits the top of the opening. Let the engine heat up and check the level again. If it's full put cap back on and note the level in the overflow jug. If engine is hot level should be at the top mark, be sure to NOT fill the jug to the very top as it needs the space to expand for any over flow from the radiator.
The system will pull extra coolant from the jug when it's cold and use it until the proper temperature is reached then it will "spit" the extra back into the jug. (that's why there are two lines 'hot' and 'cold') Never add water to the jug as it will cause the jug to crack if the outside temperature goes below freezing always add coolant/antifreeze.
