    For the last year, every time we drain down the water we have had problems getting the pump to work again. As we had drained down over the past couple of cold nights and could not get it to work again, it was annoying to say the least.

    We thought it was a problem with the switch but Barrie came up with another idea today.

    He attached a hose to the sink tap and blew up it very hard.

    Hey Presto! We have running water again.

    Hope this helps someone else with the same conundrum :)

    (Barrie reckons it could work for men with dicky tickers too :) )
