Plumberpro : Hi . Can you access the pump
Customer: Yes it's in the loft
Customer: Pumps seems to kick in when I turn the shower to cold but as soon as it gets near the hot it goes off
Plumberpro : Will it run continuously on just cold!?
Customer: Yes
Plumberpro : If you just run hot , what happens?
Customer: Nothing - no water comes out at all and pump goes off
Plumberpro : There are magnetic flow switches on the pump, hot and cold side. The hot one could have gone. To test this you can switch the flow switches around then . See if the hit will run . Are you able to do this?
Plumberpro : They are black clip on plastic switches
Customer: What do they look like? Can I order a replacement part
Plumberpro : Yes replacements can be ordered.
