  1. motor runs,and flush water delivers the system makes the same noise when it was working,it hasn't been flushed for a few months, it was ok prior to then, I've just stripped it out found wipe round the plastic cage around the blade and cotton bud, hopefully cleaning this will cure the problem .
  2. is it possible to change seals without whilst in the water, just a few drips every, but thinking maybe best change now before it gets worse.
  3. My macerator toilet has stopped flushing, i think its the filter that requires a clean, i remember someone telling me about it a couple years back, anyone have information on doing this, any tips or info best way to approach it.

    PRV Valve

    Yes Alan, bought boat 2 years ago, don't know history of pump, was cheap and easy to change PRV first, then when this didn't work i thought that it could only be the pump, and as for fitting a new remote electric PRV it was quicker and easier to fit new pump, if not cheeper. Any way thanks for your advice,as far as I'm concerned we ask for advice and follow the best solution to remedy the problem, i always appreciate all answers to my questions, I'm sorry if I've offended Whatever but we all take advice and make decision to act on it or not.

    PRV Valve

    This morning my water pump would not stop running, on checking i found my pressure relief valve on my calorifier was opening and letting the water escape out into canal, i thought it was just a matter of replacing it, changed the unit and was ok for a few times, now it has started doing the same thing once again, its like its getting too much pressure from water pump, not sure if this can happen I've only had lower pressure from pumps not higher, nothing been touched,head scratching.
  8. Our water pump starts and runs for a couple seconds every 30min. I've checked for leaks and found nothing, no leaks or damp found on the joints,I've got an accumulator fitted and wondered if it could be fault in that.
  9. What would be best anti freeze to use on Vetus M4 engine with skin tank ?
  10. Would you be able to run 2.7kw immersion heater of the 16A Marina power.
  11. Thanks Blazeaway, ii will be looking into it further next week, I've checked out the system at the thruster itself, but i am always drawn back to the panel itself, but want to investigate further, will strip off and check, have a feeling its behind panel, pretty sure wire connections making and breaking, bad connections, will get back to you if i have problem.
  12. HI everybody, sorry for delay in replying to the answers you have all posted, yes all working and up and running, found dampness and loose wire at plug at thruster, thanks for the advice, you can always get good suggestions what to look for on here.
  13. My Vetus bow thruster cut out, at the time there was no power at the control panel, later on the panel itself was switching on but when pressing button to operate it switched off all power, not sure of the problem but tried to take panel off to check behind can't see any screws securing it, tried to pop off with screwdriver but very tight, any info would be much appreciated.
  14. Ian looking at replacing tiles around the fire, what is best cement to fix tiles around fire. Also best way to remove old tiles, bolster chisel I'm thinking.
