Thanks guys,
I'm back home now so I can get it apart.I have Reich micro switch taps so do these taps have a pump attached to them as when they are working it sounds like the pump is under the sink.
The tank at the front is filled wit the external whale pump.So does this mean the taps pump the water if so is it possible There is a bad earth and they have fried.
I have read if you get the micro switch out and connect the wires together the pump should work.But it's all the taps on both sinks and the shower.The 1st thing I done was to check the fuse and this is ok but I changed it anyway.

I can't tell you where your pump is, but it could be under the sink

That seems correct

Without being able to see the components Its not really possible for us to confirm if that's the problem, but a bad earth is unlikley to "fry" a switch. Also 12V dc systems don't use the "earth", they have a Positive or negative wire.

If non of the taps causes the pump to run, then its unlikely that all the switches will have failed at the exact same time, so that suggests it will either be a wiring or a pump fault.

Why change a fuse if its OK?

If teh pump light is coming on, but no water delivered, then its either a wiring problem to the pump, or the pump its self.

Sln,

The Prof can be concise and direct in his responses, I don't think he was belittling you at all (but I understand if you interpreted otherwise).

Give the Prof a little leeway, he is one of the good guys really, you just need to know his ways ;) .

Hope you stay with us and get the answers you need, pretty sure you will.

Regards,
John

Reading all of the posts I can’t find any that would come under the definition of “ belittling’. Profs advice has been comprehensive and he’s analysed the possible reasons for your problems based on the information available to him and his experience. As said above stick with it and you’ll find good advice when you need it.

Sln ;
From what I have read , theres no 'belittling' has occurred, I've read worse ! The prof is very precise in his replies & very thorough, you've asked for some problem solving & you've getting some replies ?!
I don't see any need to leave this forum and go to another one and slate this one, it's a perfectly good forum with perfectly good information & knowledgeable people.

Sin, if you look at the number of posters asking for replies , you can narrow it down to maybe 30 to 40 people, The Prof comes back with direct results which to some seem, belittling , but, it is not,, by all means go to other sites as we all do and yo may get answers from the same person, under a different name, we are all trying to help.
Best regards,
