    Sounds as though pump is repressurising the system have you got a loose joint it could be anywhere even in the pump you could turn the pump off until you need it

    Does this happen with your tap open or closed?

    Sounds like it may be overheating and cutting out and restarting when it has cooled down. Is there much water coming out when the tap is opened and it is running?
