    Our water pump appears to have died. It's a Bohler 14l/min 2 bar. (there's also an in-line booster pump).

    How crucial is it that I replace it with one to exactly the same spec? And if it isn't crucial, what leeway do you reckon I may have when finding a replacement? And finally, any recommendations as to a replacement please?

    Thanks :thumb:

    i assume your existing pump is the in-tank submersible variety so you may be limited to replacing with another submersible type depending on available space.

    any pump with the same pipe diameter will do the job but you may have to swap the electrical plug.
    personally, i would buy an external pump and fit in the pipework near the tank.

    Recently replaced my submersible pump with a twin barrelled Rauch. Works a treat. Don't know anything about a booster pump though.
