Post Subject: Bath pump

And finally, had a lovely hot bath yesterday. It's a 4 foot bath, but I'm only hobbit size. The pump drained just over half the water away and then packed up. Any ideas? My first thought was that the fuse had blown, but I haven't found the fusebox yet!

Is the pump motor running but its not pumping or is it silent. In the first case you probably have a filter blocked with hair or hair jambing the pump valves (depending upon type of pump) and in the second case it has to be either a faulty component or no electricity. The fuses are usually right at the back of the cabin but some "novel" wiring systems have recently been promoted that scatter fuses throughout the boat. If it is a fuse and it keeps blowing you need to ensure the cables will allow you to fit a higher rated fuse. Do not just fit a larger one because it could result in a fire (unlikely but still possible). Also thing about a faulty switch, wires come adrift and a faulty motor. Tony Brooks
