Construction in Thailand Is building in Thailand as bad as it seems? Can properties really be built and fitted out to European standards? Would you like to Build your own house in Phuket, or a swimming pool in Bangkok? Solar water heating in Pattaya? Or maybe you want to build a resort or guesthouse on Koh Samui? If you want to build a luxury house in Thailand then this is the forum for you.

Even if you do, if the problem is not the pump but the installation, Hitachi's guy will get it sorted but will charge for fixing installation problems.

True, but at least it will be fixed.

Try asking the Hitachi guy if he can report it as a gaurantee repair and then you pay him cash

I don't think it's an installation error, despite Mr Fuckwit who installed it. The pump ran smoothly and silently for at least seven months. It's only in the last couple of weeks we've had this sputtering noise.

If as you say, pressure at faucets is OK and no air is coming out, sputtering noise may not be air as we assumed. Could be pump impeller noise caused by any number of things. Hitachi guy will get it sorted.

The bit that looks like a fan blade driven by the motor. Sucks the water in and pumps it out. On your pump it's inside the brass casing. If there's air, plastic, sand, or other bits in there you will hear a shushing noise.

Ok.
Lift the lid of the pump.
As Naughty says on the side of the pump there will be a round plate secured by 4 stainless steel bolts.
This is probably the only bit of the pump that isn't painted grey, the plate will almost certainly be round.
If you can isolate the pump from the tank then do so, if you can't your going to get wet.
Remove that plate to reveal the impeller.
It looks like a fan with about 100 blades.
Check carefully visually between each blade, I bet you find plastic bag fragments.
Do of course unplug the pump before you do this
Good luck.

When you say it runs without taps turned on do you mean all the time.
It's quite normal for a pump to trigger occationally with no taps on.
No system is completely air tight.

You have a slight leak somewhere or the peasants are'nt turning the taps off all the way.
Actually you can see the impeller cover under you hand in the pic.
Yours appears to have 5 bolts, and as suspected isn't painted grey.

The rustling noise could also be the pump on the cusp of turning off.
If a tap is just on then the pump will fire, and just before it clicks off will create a rustling noise. Mine does this but it's rare.
I have an HP 130.

I checked the water tank first, and it's full of clean water, with no obstruction in the pipe which goes to the pump.

I removed the plastic cover and unscrewed the cap on top (pictured with my fat finger pointing at it), and there was a hiss of escaping gas. I poured water in the hole - Mrs benbaaa said this was the thing to do - until it was full, then screwed the cap on again. This seemed to fix the problem for a while, but now I get the sound of water and air being pumped again. Any advice?

This is my pump.


This is the cap I unscrewed.


Cheers,

The non return valve is located under the cap with three screws just beside or behind the priming plug hole. I have often found debris under this valve which will cause frequent pump cycling.

Hope that fixes it. The washing up will have built up a bit over the last 6 years.
