I have to replace my shower pump as the old one is leaking. I have two showers running off this pump, but never at the same time!
The old pump is a Stuart pump labled Monsoon 72T. It is 15 years old and there are no longer any spares. I am told by Stuart Turner that my replacement pump will be Part No.46416.
I am a DIYer.
I have at this stage two questions.
1. I see on the various websites that there are two types of pump, for Negative feed or for Positive feed. It is an old house with a very tall roof space. The shower heads are both a minimum of 2 metres below the two cold water tanks. We have seperate tanks one for showers, the other for the hot water cylinder and sink and bath taps. As the tank is 2 metres above the shower head is this a Positive feed? Do I have to select a Positive Pump?
2. The pump has two impellers. So one for hot and one for cold. I have shut of taps in the copper pipes on one side of the pump. I assume that these are on the feed side? I have switched these two off and the leak has stopped. Before I remove the old pump should I run it to get rid of any water between the exit part of the pump and the shower heads?
Finally is there a DIY instruction manual for this job?
Not looking forward to doing this job!!
