  1. Thanks I'll try the sucking technique to try get it pumping and check where the leak might be. Any tips on how I might stop the pump from weeping? Unscrewing and resealing?
  2. Hi all I've not been living on boat and found that back cabin bilge was full of water when I last went on board, about 2 weeks ago. Batteries were completely drained and fresh water tank was empty so assumed a leak on fresh water pipes which led to pump pumping till dry and draining fresh tank and batteries. I managed to get batteries charged again but removing fuse for fresh water pump and filled up fresh water tank but to see where leak is I need to get water to circulate through system. When I put fuse for pump back in, it starts pumping but don't think its managing
  3. Excellent I'll give that a try!

  5. I cant as having difficulty passing anything through the 90 degree bend!
  6. Hi all Still having great trouble with the one drainage hole/square pipe blocking at the mere hint of dirt. The curtain wire does not bend through the 90 degree angle so can't use it to feed a chain through it. Tried washing it down with water but that didn't work either. Anyone got any other ideas on how to feed a chain down through the 90 degree bend? Thanks
  7. I went down there Personally and spoke with a chap who seemed to be running the place, he was surrounded by boaters from orchard marina and when I asked after a mooring they all burst into laughter and said about 50 boats had to relocate from orchid so I stood little chance.
  8. Park Farm is definitely active so presume it will be ok. I'm happy to go have a look when I am around there again.
  9. Think it was orchard marina, the guy said same people who own park farm
  10. Thank you all. I've found a berth at Nantwich quay. Very nice people running the show. Park farm was a no go as another marina nearby is relocating all boats to do refurb work so will be inundated with boats from there. Quite fancy being on river nav for s bit and save some money on CRT licence. As ever this forum is so useful!!!! Sorry meant Northwich Quay! Doh
  11. Hi I need to move my boat from Derby up to Lymm where I'll be starting a new job (tricky with current lockdown restrictions). Hoping to start this on 1st June when restrictions lifted. Tried enquiring about mooring and licence costs with Brigewater Canal Co. Found them very unhelpful and not willing to give me a licence cost unless I had secured a moorring which I can't seem to do. So thinking of mooring on Trent and Mersey before you get onto the Brigewater Canal. Anyone got any tips on reasonably priced marinas around there? I've Park Farm Marina but tel number just says they are not av
  12. Thanks for the responses, I can't even see the stub so may need to take the thing apart, the metal rod appears to be connected the adjuster with plastic which as broken. I try contact Hamilton Gas in NI.
  13. HI all, I took the cover off the gas heater today and the spindle for the temperature control has sheared off. It was set on the maximum. Does anyone know if its possible to get spares for this model? I am going to get a thermostatic mixer in meantime.
  14. Hi I have a Rinnai gas water heater which does hot water for kitchen and bathroom. There are two flame settings, low and high. The low setting is fine in summer but no for winter. When on the high setting the water comes out taps at a scalding temperature. Its has a temp dial to reduce the temperature but this seems to have no effect in reducing the temperature. Whilst I can handle this in the kitchen with the mixer taps, the mixer in the bathroom shower seems to be very fickle in controlling the temperature so you go from scalding, try to adjust to lower temp and then it goes col
