    Hi all.
    Could anyone come up with any ideas why our taps and shower won't work since the big freeze last winter? We drained everything down as far as possible but now the microswitch operated taps won't work. Wondering if water may have remained in the pumps and frozen, damaging sonmething?
    Any suggestions at all would be gratefully received!! :thumb:
    (checked fuses etc)

    certainly sounds like frost damage if the fuses are all ok.

    it could have split the pump/filter casing but probably would push water onto the floor, unless its a submerged pump (in the tank) if its a diaphram pump it could have damaged the valves or diaphram.

    can you get to the pump ?

    identify the feed wires to the pump and test with a mutimeter with a tap turned on.
