Help!  First-time user of our White Water.  I filled the water tank, opened the faucets, turned on water pump (heard it purring), and have no water coming from faucets.  By-pass valve is closed to water heater; all other valves appear to be open.  System works fine with pressurized city water.  Water pump appears to be operating properly except that I am not receiving water thoughout the system.  What am I overlooking?  I have read that the hot water tank needs to fill first, but I have had system running for 15-20 minutes without any success.  Ideas?

It sounds strange that water is not coming when everything is working fine. In my opinion, first of all, you should see the water pump pipe. Yes, in most case, I noticed that such things happen when your water pump bent or kinked. Similarly, it could be a faucet issue. I would recommend you to use any of good quality faucets or even faucet heads from here https://www.wowowfaucet.com/, and you would notice either it is faucet or its heads issue or not. 

On the other hand, it could also be a microswitch issue. Yes, in many whitewater retroes and even caravans, there is tiny microswitch under each tap. It would help if you examined them because in case they have failed a reason of this problem. Blocked water filters or pressure switch failure could also become a reason of this problem. I would like to recommend you to read this article https://www.hortoncommon.co.uk/tap-not-working-in-your-caravan-or-motorhome/ to understand precisely about your water issue. Yes, it is related to caravans and motorhomes, but their water system is similar in many cases.
