    Hi everyone hope you can help, I changed my surflow pump 7weeks ago and it's now started to go slow, so slow the water wasn't coming out, I went to Wfp shop all he could think of was a new flow control, so I've stuck one on. It works for abit all the while saying bat. I've checked battery it's fine, now when I go to switch it on it cuts it self out write away checked connectors seem fine, any ideas apart from start again?

    What battery have you got?

    I would suggest you connect your system up to another battery, your van/car battery for example and see what happens.

    If it works then its your battery or the connections.

    If its the same then wire the pump up directly to the battery without controller. That will test to see if the pump is working.

    If the pump is fine then look at the controller. What controller have you got?

    Its a process of elimination to find the fault.
