Hi. We seem to be having problems with the pressure switch on our Lunar Lexon. George has tried everything to fine adjust it but to no avail...still chatters etc. We thought at first it was a problem with the pump..but no..just this pressure switch.

Has anyone a ny ideas at all. We have read in Practical Caravan Mag about a Revolutionary Water Pump Pressure Switch that self adjusts to pump pressure etc. and stops that annoying chattering etc.

Can anyone give any advice.....and should be purchase one...Can't find anyone that had had one at all...and there isn't a website just a phone no. etc.

Failing that any advice anyone....before it drives us mad...!!!

Chris x Thanks !

Hi Chris, I don't why but Lunars seem to suffer this problem more than most, mine had the problem when i owned one, unless there is a problem with the pressure switch, fitting a whale surge damper usually solves the problem, cost about £20 easy to fit, instruction in the packaging.

Initialy I had a bit of a problem with the presure switch on our Lexon, took me a bit of time to (semi) sort it out, just kept adjusting it as per istructions till I got the best setting. Now with the delta it has an inboard pump and a surge damper and never had a problem.

Practical Caravan might mean the replacement water pressure switch from Mid Service Centre tel 0121 354 5552.

I had been troubled for a while with inconsistent performance from my conventional pressure switch and replaced it last year with the Mid Service Centre product. It worked for me; no more fiddling in the locker every couple of days, simplified pipework and more room in the locker; it's a fit and forget item and I'm delighted with mine thumbup.gif . It is sensitive to frost though so don't let it freeze.

Just to confirm Hawkeye's findings..

We have had one of these for about 2 years now - absolutely brilliant, does exactly what it says on the tin !!

They are made by a couple of blokes in their garage, who seem to be able to sell all they can make without a web site, but are very friendly people and extremely helpful - go for one !!!
