Gas cupboard door hinge pins

I have broken the hinge pins (x2) on the door housing the gas bottle on my Lunar champ H621. Anyone know where I can get a couple of replacement pins? They are plastic, very thin and I presume, designed to break rather than break the door or frame? Also, is it possible to fit a stronger (upgraded) water pump to improve the flow in the shower?

I think you may have too buy the full hinges.
I broke one on the autotral and replaced it with a brass bolt that was lying around in my "bits" box.

Water Pump

They come when new with a range of strengths or speeds of delivery. There is a possibility of a restrictor or limiter on your system, before splashing out on a new pump.
If you do decide to replace the pump, find out how many GPM (or LPM) your present pump is designed to deliver in order to determine what greater flow you would like to have.

The hinge. I too would like to know where to get a replacement plastic hinge pin. They get brittle after a time and can snap as mine did when removing it.

Do you know that it is the pump that is restricting the flow of water from your shower ? Could it be that the shower head is full of limescale ? Might be worth soaking the whole thing in vinegar before you splash out on upgrading the pump.

Just a thought. Welcome to MHF by the way.
