SOURCE: salamander rsp 75pump not working, When shower tap

I would be more inclined to think that pump impeller has something caught in it. There should be a flex coupling of some kind that you can lossen to remove pump from basin. Unplug electrical cord and pull pump out. There should be a removeable slotted cover on the bottom that you can take off to clean impeller. Remove all debris from bottom, wash out with water. Depending on what type of switch you have on your pump you can make sure all water is out of pump and plug in momentarily,rise float to turn it on and see if it runs. If it has apressure switch you won't be able to do this. If you can make it try to run make sure you only try for a few seconds. These pumps are not designed to be run dry. If it runs put bottom cover back on and reinstall pump. If it doesn"t you probably will need a new pump. Thank. Hope this helps.

My shower does not stop when turned off. It still runs fully for half an hour and then dribbles all the time


Tell us what type of shower. Power shower with a pump? Mains water power only? How old is it? Who fitted it? Does the control valve feel like its working properly?

Salamander pump leaking


I have repaired in the past by disassembling the pump assembly and freeing up the paddles. It will likely require a new gasket - either purchase a new one or make one (tedious but dooable). It is also possible that the leak is from a hose connection instead of the pump - pretty simple to cut back the hose slightly and reconnect.
Good Luck!

Triton t200re shower


Paul. Is it only the shower that the pump cuts out? i dont think we have these pumps in AU. Would bet that its a flow issue. Either remove the water saving device in the shower, if there is one. Pr turn another tap on just a dribble when you start the shower?
We have these issues with "smart"? controllers that think there is a leak

Triton Millenium Power Shower


generally if the flow sensor notices no water through the pump it will auto matically shut the pump down. so it could be the flow sensor is bad or the pump is not working like it should. now it depends on how old the pump is. i would start with the flow sensor.
