Shower Pump in apartment - replace or repair??

Hi,

I'm just wondering has anyone experienced any problems with the original shower pump in the apartments at Carrigmore Crescent? Lately, I have been having difficulties with the pump (makes noise and gives no pressure in the cold water taps but there is pressure in the hot taps) . I called a plumber in who said it needs complete replacement to the cost of €700+. He said it is a negative head pump 3.0bar and is expensive to replace, hence the price.

I would really appreciate any advise on this matter. Does every resident at Carrigmore Crescent have the same negative head pump or can I go for a positive head pump (the cheaper option)? Has anyone experienced problems with their shower pump and if so, how did you solve the problem.

Thanks in advance,

SMcDDB

My pump had the same problem. I cleaned out the filters in the pump but still had an issue. Eventually gave in and called someone out.
It turned out i didnt put a small switch back in the same place when putting it back together. A small electrical part was changed as a precaution aswell. Fixed within 10 minutes. I think no matter what the problem you will be pushed towards replacing the pump. I have a number for the person who looks after the pumps. Repair cost about € 100
