    Cleaned water tanks out with powder !
    Well any way managed to block up pump
    Pump fitted comet Lux-Plus Part number 1540.78.00

    Do you take these apart and service or just replace They are about £25?
    Or are there better pumps you can fit?
    Looks straight forward to fit
    Thanks
    Jim

    Comet pumps are fine. Try soaking yours in hand-hot water for a while. Give it a shake now & then - I'd expect it to clear. If not they are as straightforward to replace as they appear to be.

    Why on earth would you clean the fresh water tank with a powder cleaner ?

    almost guaranteed to clog the pump, or worse.

    Your supposed to dissolve the powder first ....I've done mine a few times I dissolved it in boiling water and added to tank ....still has a funny taste though so only use for showers and washing up ....carry fresh water in bottles for drinking
