On mine I have a 12V pump fitted down by the heater. It looks reasonably easy to fit yourself. I watched it beeing swapped by an engineer. He said they last forever but mine had to be swapped since the electronics had a fault that included the pump.

My Pilote has the Alde wet heating and occasionally it would lose some of its fluid from the header tank, I checked around and eventually found this chap http://www.grahamcutmoreengineering.co.uk/
Extremely helpful and his suggestion that it was the auto bleed valve appears to have been correct, bought a new one from him and fitted it and OK since.
When chatting to him I asked about the pump as mine is quite noisy, another supplier of Alde parts had suggested changing my pump which is fitted in the pipework at the heater and not in the header tank, with one of the header tank variety.
When I mentioned that suggestion to Graham he said that some of the motorhome manufacturers that fitted Alde fitted the remote pump as the in header tank on wasn't man enough to cope with bigger / complicated installations. Unfortunately Pilote choose to use a Bosch pump rather than the Alde one, probably because of cost, they are around £180, although he did suggest that the Alde one is virtually silent.
Might be worth giving him a call and chatting through your problems with him.
Think I will get a genuine pump from him when I get home from my current trip.

I think its a good idea for an inline pump, same as your home central heating.
Any chance of some photos of where yours is fitted and types, then I can hatch a plan.

Have a look at this picture here: https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-D...5-no/photo.jpg

The pump is the large black thing connected via the hose, the vent I mentioned is the brass looking item above it.

The UK Alde site is not that informative I've found the main company site to be more useful http://www.alde.se/uk/


This one: http://www.alde.se/uk/products/mobile/?page=1821

I think that would be a good idea, maybe better to place it further away from the heater, to keep it cooler and better performance.
I'll see if I can get a price for that one.
