    Since I've been a member I've read many threads on filling water tanks and then not getting water out of the taps.
    I think I've just been fortunate that it hadn't happened to me-UNTIL NOW !!

    Filled tank at 0730 to be ready for an early 'off'-turned on all taps as usual-nothing.Could hear pump running,tried turning taps on and off,tried sucking on a tap-then blowing down it in desparation-still nothing.
    Carolyn said that praps if we could 'agitate' the whole system by driving off it might free the 'air lock' as we assumed it to be.
    I thought I would check business end of pump to see if there was any suction there.
    I took off my shirt :BigGrin: reached into tank and put my finger over the pump intake pipe-could't feel anything,so,in annoyance I gave it a bit of a shake-BINGO a few gurgles and we had water out of every tap :thumb:
    I know what I'll be trying next time it happens.
