Shower pump problem
Posted 09 April 2011 - 01:09 PM
The pump make is Salamander. It's possibly one of the worst pieces of plumbing installation i've ever seen. The pump isn't even secured to the floor and moves freely. Only been in about 2 years.
I said i'd check out and see if I can find out whether it's a repair or replacement but it's not really my area.

as for the switching off mid shower,,,,, if you had trouble turning it on then I'd suggest that it required a negative head shower (or kit if one's available) but in this case I don't really know,,,, it does certainly sound like a negative head problem, but that usually just affects starting up..

Are the water tanks old open ones?
or modern ones with fixed lids?
Could some debris have got into the water pipe...?
Starts up then obstacle in pipework moves around with flow?
Had a problem years ago where a small bit of polystyrene got into the hot water pipes until it finally stopped behind the hot water tap!!
