Water won't pump away

This is one in a series of A Guide to Narrow Boat Problems.

Water from eg shower tray won't pump away
Failing pump, blocked drain pipe or blocked pump filter.
If pump sounds as if it is working but water still doesn't pump out, switch off, take off pump housing and take out the filter. Clear of debris. Re-assemble. To clear pump  use a manual plunger and briskly pump up and down. Finally, if necessary, poke stiff wire down the drain hole from the outside.
Clean pump filter as part of regular maintenance.
