Is the pump running ? (electrics getting thru ?)

Is there water in your tank ?

Is the stop-tap open ?

Did you remove any 'end plugs' when connecting the pipes ?

 

28USGPM = 28 US gallons flow per minute (A US gallon is smaller than the UK gallon due to barrel shrinkage) 28 USG = 23 Imperial (UK) gallons.

If you get it running, I hope you have a large water tank.

 

The manufacturer quotes 10.6Lpm, but it gets a little wearing when you are criticised for correcting posts or providing unasked for information - just 'go with the flow' (see what I did there) and answer the question asked without suplementary information.

 

I'm sure the OP misread 2.8USGPM as 28USGPM

the pump use to kick in when the taps were in use .the new one kicked  in at first but for some reason it dont now 

 

Is it running - electrical wirring noises ?

Have you blown a fuse ?

Can you check ?

It could be an inline fuse close to the pump, just follow the wiring as far as you can.

It could be a fuse or an MCB on your electrical panel / "fuse box"

 

Do you have a list of switches marked up "pump". "bilge pump", "tunnel light" etc - they might be 'fused' switches, do they have red lights alongside the switches ?

 

There are so many possibilities that photos of you panel would help.

And can you test the fuse ?

Do you have a multimeter ?

 

Is so, set it to the Ohm** scale, touch the two probes together and note the reading, now touch each end of the fuse (one probe on each end) and see it the reading is the same, if it is that means the fuse is OK (not blown).

 

** set the dial to the highest number (maybe 2000 ?) on the scale that show this symbol Ω

 

If you get a no reading or "OL" then the fuse is blown and needs replacing.

 

If the fuse blows again you have a wiring problem, or have replaced the pump with one that requires thicker wiring / bigger fuse. DO NOT just replace the old fuse with a bigger one. Find the problem first.
