The pump in our tank is on a chain to enable retrieving it without having to empty the tank, check the elec supply has not tripped out, ours has in the past, dried out the exterior wall socket reset the trip, all ok!

MAKE SURE THE SUPPLY IS OFF BEFORE INVESTIGATING THE SOCKET!!!!

In my experience the pump is a fairly standard float switched sludge pump which you could obtain from Castorama or similar and fit yourself.  A bit of a smelly job and you will have to lower the water level first.

You will need to check the water connections are correct and if not choose a different model.

My first stop would be your Mairie in Corseul for advice, The local Mairie is normally, (in my experience) extreemly helpful.

                      Best Regards and Bonne Fete.
