    Hi folks, only our second trip in the Miami and encountered a strange problem. The pump seems to only work intermittently. The button on the control panel for the pump doesn't light up at all and the pump works sometimes and not others. Just had a shower and it was working fine then went to run a tap and nothing. Plenty water in tank. Confused. Any ideas?

    Possibly loose wire connection on pump due to vibration.

    Any ideas where the pump might be? Sorry if that's a dumb question.

    My pump packed up after intermittent working /not working this week. I removed the filter cleaned it out and hey presto! It's working fine.
    I think that this is a regular job to keep it going.
    ill try and post the photos of how much grit was in there,

    The pump in my Miami was under the bed with the water heater I seem to remember once when I was away I had the same problem and if I remember rightly giving it a slight tap started it working again.
