Pump airlocking

Hi,

I have a constant problem with my pump in the hot press always air locking.....sometimes a good swift kick gets rid of it.

Anyone have any problems with the pumps in the apartments?

Any tips on getting rid of the airlocks?

I've had a few problems with the pump.
From time to time the pressure would simply disappear. Then we'd need to turn the whole lot off and back on to get any decent pressure.

Had to have a few parts replaced.

Also turned out that there was a leak from one of the pipes near the toilet, so this would cause the pump to engage off and on all the time.
Since that was fixed, had no more issues.

What is the symptom of an airlock?

I think I have the number of the pump guy if you need a recommendation.

I got a bicycle pump and pumpped air into the valve on top of the pump and got it working again.

Usually a good kick gets it going.

It's annoying that it keeps occuring though, especially if I adjust the temperature on the gas boiler
