    Fiamma Aqua 8 water pump running but not pumping cold or hot water, opened all taps even opened the filter just in case it was blocked but all clear.
    Many Thanks and a Happy New Year to you all.;)

    I agree with air lock, can take a while to clear, but worth looking under MH while pump is running in case you have water escaping straight through heater

    ref air lock, we have also had shower hose off and sucked hose to clear air

    good luck and happy new year to you too

    if you go down the sucking option, you should hear a change in pump tone just before you drown :D

    The most incredibly stupid thing would be -- no water.

    close all of the taps except the one closest to the pump, that raises the pressure.

    Try putting shower hose on floor as it may be lower than the pump, syphon effect is what I'm thinking?

    Here's another try, get a jug and put some water down shower hose to try to prime the pump, if you don't have any water use SWMBO's gin, I'm sure she won't mind :whistle:
