Replacing Tank Pumps

In the absence of proper maintenance, rainwater tank pumps are prone to faulty operation without warning. The most common cause is a failure of the solenoid that controls the pump. It is possible that your water bills have started to go up if the pump has not switched to the tank water. It is likely that you have already encountered the inconvenience of no water if the pump has not been switched to the mains.
