  1. ****.

    Went out this morning and pump failed. Randomly turning on for few seconds every minute or so.

    Checked for air lock. Checked for loose connection. Checked filter inside tank. No joy.

    Got bugger all to do till gardiner backpack turns up. So will pull it apart if the rain stops. Any ideas what may cause sporadic pumping?

    Sounds electric - the circuit board is about £40 but easy to fit

    Well done
    Least you got spare now
    I'd never be without a backpack
     
  9. I can wear one on the front and one on the back! Double up! If I can get enough beer in me, I'll take a photo.
