Okay - with the quick return of better weather I started de-winterizing the Lance last month.... Blew a fuse right away in the water pump then couldn't get it to go, so we pulled it out and took it in the house. When it warmed up, we got some additional water out of it....

Reinstalled it and now when it builds up pressure it doesn't shut off.... checked all of the pipes for leaks - none found.... we have all of the air out.... we find that even after we shut the water pump off, and wait say 15 minutes, the system still has pressure when we open the tap - I think that's a good thing....

Do you think the sensor that turns the pump off is hosed somehow? Anybody else have this problem?

Thanks

Yes the sensor is hosed. A very similiar thing happened to my son-in-law. When he winterized he didn't run the pump for a bit after everything was drained and the water that was still trapped in the pump froze. We got the pump going but it wouldn't shut off.
