The most common symptom of an issue with your booster pump is the lack of pressure in your pressure vessel. If you go from an invigorating blast to a simple dribble, then you know you have an issue. Make these checks below. Please keep in mind that for some of these issues you may need to contact a plumber.
Pump seals can deteriorate over time. Perform a thorough inspection of your booster pump. Is it leaking? Do any of the seals look defective? If so, then you could be losing some of the pressure in your system.
Another common booster pump problem is airlock. This is where air has entered the pump and is now restricting the flow rate. To solve this issue the pump will need bleeding. Most high quality shower pumps will come with a bleed switch. This will allow you to follow the instructions in your shower pump installation guide to bleed the pump. Failing this, you may need to contact a plumber.
Blocked Pump Filters
One of the most common issues with a newly fitted shower pump is blocked pump filters. This can be due to debris getting into the pump during installation. You will need to ensure that the electric and water supply is switched off before giving the pump a thorough clean.
Just like other pipes in your home, during a cold winter, a booster pump is likely to freeze. Take the time to warm the cold feed pipe to ensure ice doesn’t cause damage to the booster pump.
