Is my pump dying - Rocket premium plus V1?
I noticed today when pulling a shot or back flushing that the pump would go silent after the first few seconds. Previously there would be a pitch change but the pump would continue to operate.
Water still discharges out of the piston when the pump is switched off. Also the shot still seemed to pull correctly while the pump was silent.
Best take into a reliable service technician if you can. Does not sound good but it may be a simple fix. Not worth stressing over what might be wrong.
Pump stall.... It could be a pump on the way out. Could also be an OPV not doing much.
Yep, its stalling. Fault now appears to be intermittent as I discovered with this mornings coffee, as it was back to normal!!

Time to replace the pump....
