    Haven't used the buses shower for age so got ready went to switch it on the pump stated and stopped again.

    It now does a slight draw when switched on an d get a few dribbles and stops again.

    Had the shower head off and look OK so it there a micro switch and how easy is it to repair?

    Any ideas?

    Hi John.

    There should be a water pressure micro switch in the pump (output side) hose.

    You say there is a little flow to the shower.Can you hear the pump running?

    Do you see the 12v lighting dim slightly when it is turned on?

    Mine feeds the basin and Bath taps as well.Do these work ok on yours?

    John you do know the back of the head of the shower twists for on and off, after the tapps are turned on twist head for full water supply and back again give you the slight dribble you talk about
    No micro switch involved, if that dont work remove head alltogether and try tapps again without head in place

    No dimming lights.

    The water pump turn on for say 2 seconds then stops and i get a small dribble fro the shower head and some brown yucky water in the dribbles.

    I don't know what others think but that suggests a partial blockage in the hose to me.

    Geo's suggestion of removing the head sounds a good one.

    The SHOWER head that is.......:Eeek::Rofl1:

    As Geo suggests John, check the shower head is turned to the "on" position before you start tearing anything apart :Wink:

    :RollEyes: First things first. Is there water coming out of the taps in the sinks?
