    Hi everyone :)

    We're just getting ready to go out in our lovely Ford Transit Travelhome and our water pump has decided not to work !

    It seems to be making a humming nice when it's switched on...

    Is it something easy to replace myself ? And where's a good place to pick up one of these pumps ?

    Thanks everyone :)

    They normally make a noise when there is nothing to pump, i.e. no water.
    Don't know what pump you have so you need to pull it out and see what's going on and what type it is, as it sound like its running but not pumping.

    Our's does this quite often if there is an airlock in the system.

    Barrie attaches apiece of hose to a tap and blows very hard. It might be worth a try - that and hitting it with a hammer :)

    Might be worth emptying all the water out and starting again.
