    Any advise please, I have emptied my water tank and changed my DI Resin today but now no water will not come through the pump, but the pump is making a noise.

    I take it you are on about a wfp pump if so you have to bleed the air out of the system now. To do so just make sure there is water in the tank and wack the pump on full pelt if you have a controller until all air is out of the hoses and you are back to a normal steady strong flow.

    If you’re on about a submersible pump then what I do with mine if it runs dry is once the tank has water in it again I just pull it up from the bottom of an ibc whilst turned on and when at the top I tilt it to one side and lower it back down and the sound of the pump will change. Don't ask me why that method works to prime the submersible pump again but it just does.
