Yes I agree, I will edit the blog and add in that link. I have it somewhere. Always good to refurb and re-use a part. I had ordered the pump before I realised how easy it was to strip it down. I will strip mine down next week as I want to see if I can find out why the performance dropped.

Worth doing. My pump stopped working properly and I did the strip down and clean. As I stripped mine down, I found a tiny little wire filament inside the smallest part of the pump that I think was causing the problem. After re-assembly it worked like a charm.

I've posted a photo of the filament, alongside a euro coin, to give an idea of it's size- it was probably a millimetre or two in length.
