Check Your Water


Recommended Posts

Just been away for the first time this year.

I have always drained down and left the taps in the open position over winter and have never had any problems with the water system.

On first filling the system on Friday, I found that the in line water filter had split at the seam and this morning found that the shower tap is dripping.

I can only assume that these fault are from frost damage during the very cold winter we've had.

Check your systems before leaving for your first trips just in case.

Hi Rostrevor,

We're away this weekend so will check the water system, but it will be down to the Dealer if there's any damage as they've fitted a new pump so I hope that they drained it down,

In winter I always take the shower head of and leave the hose floor of the shower tray, that way any water just trickles out. Had the mis fortune a few years ago when the shower head split due to a small amount of water left in it. Also leave all taps open and for mixer taps leave them in the middle position.
