Hot water cutting off after bathroom update

Postby Adinad » Tue Jul 14, 2020 6:43 pm

After a bathroom update we had to install a pump by the hot water cylinder and for a while we had no issues with the hot water. Lately the hot water is cutting off when we shower or at the sink in the kitchen. We cleaned the pump filter and we checked the pump pressure but nothing helps. We are at a point where we are thinking of changing the pump. Any ideas why this happens and what else we can try? Thank you

Simply Build It

Hi Adinad
Most likely cause is the flow switch not operating, you may be able to replace just the switch or more likely this is an integrated component so the whole pump will have to be replaced.
