Burst Pipe

2012-01-24 11.24.02The retic didn’t work and when I went to check, the pump was still running on and very hot. The inlet pipe had burst, I later found out that it was a bit higher than the pump and a bubble of air had built up and expanded with the heat. I didn’t have a spare attachment, so called in the professionals. Steve from Aquashed arranged his contractor to come out the same day. It seems that there were no ill-effects from running on empty for 4 or 5 hours and it worked immediately it was re-primed.
