    Hello Barneythebear and welcome.
    Regarding your plumbing problem. How much water leaks out when the pump is switched on?, if it is a massive amount it probably means that the frost has blown the pipe out of the fitting. These plastic fittings just push back in if this is the case. Otherwise it looks like the plastic pipe has burst due to frost.
    In either case you will need to gain access to the pipework which could mean removing the shower base.
    Hope this helps.:Wink:

    It's so easy for this to happen. Just parked at an angle and a pocket of water and that's it.

    I had to dismantle my Burstner shower due to frost damaging the shower valve. Lots and lots of screws and I got to the back of it, bit of super glue, sorted. I even finished with no screws over. Luckily all the joints overlapped with no sealant so it was a nice job.

    I hope you get so lucky. But worst case is a long term leak, floor soft, which is why the shower tray cracked, look long and hard while you are in there.

    Water ? and HI !!

    Hi Barney,from another (Barny) i had a similar problem,unfortunately you have to dismantle the fittings,but try looking at the pipes going straight into the taps,if your lucky like me,one of them came loose and away,thats all ! half hour later,all was well,but you may as well check WHY that shower tray is cracked and maybe replace,checking floor area while your at it ,good luck.

    Hi Barney ,

    Great name that lol , I already checked the cold water tap in the bathroom
    does the other cold feed go to the loo ?????? only one comes out the other side of the wall with the returning hot feed for the hot tap in the bathroom (three cold feeds from pump)

    regards :Doh:

    HI,

    Your welcome to ring my lads in the workshop and pick their brains, ask Glenn or Ian.

    The shower tray if you do replace it, make sure you put additional packing underneath it. Might be repairable with a fibre glass kit with strips underneath, certainly a lot cheaper.

    Peter
