    Yes we were exceptionally busy today! The phones didn't stop all day.

    It does sound like a pressure switch issue - it may be worth adjusting the pressure switch adjustment screw to free it up. There is a hole on the side base of the backpack through which you should be able to see a screw-head. If you tighten this up by one full turn and then loosen it again by one full turn you may well find that this is all that is needed.

    If the screw is no longer in the end of the pressure switch then this may be why it is now playing up. It may be worth trying to find the screw in the base of the backpack and putting back in.

    We do not carry spare pressure switches for these pumps anymore, but we do have some complete V2 pumps. Drop me an email (alex@agardiner.co.uk) if you would like a complete pump for this backpack and I will get the sales team to contact you.
