Discuss How does pump work on shower pan in the Plumbing Forum area at PlumbersForums.net
There is electric that runs to the shower and originally when we viewed the house we could here the gargling noise when the shower was turned off for 20 seconds or soDo you definitely have a pump?
Generally they're not the quietest of things so should be easy enough to locate once it's running.
The power breaker is on the landing and the cable runs through the loft to bathroomTake a pic of the electrics to the shower and also the shower waste which is holding water.
Hi thanks for the message. I can't see any pipework in the bathroom as behind the mixer shower is sealed with false plastic tiles and no way of getting behind without stripping everything out. All I remember is there was a loud gargling noise when the previous owner turned the shower off for 10-20 seconds which I assumed was a pump getting rid of the water etc. When I put my fingers down the drain it's round and shallow and there's nothing else to feel. When I get chance tomorrow I guess I need to run the shower for at least 30 seconds to as Shaun's message aboveHello Batman63,
You have a thermostatic mixer shower (not electric), which looks like it’s pumped, hence the electrics and pump in the airing cupboard. If there was a pump on that waste you should have x2 flow switches to activate the pump, it looks shallow, so suggests to me a pump, but I could be wrong. Is there anything in the bathroom that resembles a pump, or can you see any rising pipework at the end of the tray?
