Hi everyone.
I have taken our shower hose out of the van and replaced it with a 1/2 inch BSP nut to blank it off as we use the block for showering.
My question is will I have trapped air in the shower pipe work which in turn would possibly cause the pump some problems.
If so are there any bleeder set ups I can buy. Many thanks for any answers.

I think it's very unlikely to be a problem all that will happen is that any trapped air will compress. It will though make it harder to drain effectively in the winter .

many many years! since I was a kid
no problem blanking off and if you put the lever half way between hot and cold, then turn the tap and the basin tap on, it will purge any air left in the pipes. Just remember to turn off the shower tap after.

That is what we do between showers no problems at all. Only fitted as the lever is to easy to knock up and cold water down the neck in the morning wakes you up very quickly.:ROFLMAO:
