Getting ready for Easter? If you have an on-board pump on your Caravan or Motorhome make sure you check the strainer, these are prone to frost damage and can cause annoying water problems.
Problems include no water intake, spluttering taps, poor water flow and of course water all over the floor!
If you have a pump the strainer is fitted to the intake of the pump and looks like this
These are usually fitted with the clear plastic cap upside down, water rests in the and expands with frost and cracks the casing. Make sure you check for cracks before you travel.
In severe circumstance the strainer can split like this and flood your caravan.
Even Though we have had a “Mild” winter frost has still been and gone. We have replaced 14 of these so far this year.
These strainers can be replaced for less than £10 so check & replace if necessary before you go and you can buy them from many caravan accessory shops and the take 2 minutes to fit.
