Shower Taps

I'm on the road travelling through the US and Canada to Nova Scotia. The taps in the shower appear to have a crack in the down spout where the shower hose connects to it.

I have tried to replace them by taking the access ring out of the shower and trying to disconnect the hoses and mounting nuts. All I ended up with is two lacerated hands while trying to get at it. Very small space to get into and lots of sharp object inside.

Is there a simple way to replace these. Is there a particular tool I could use.

I don't know exactly what you have there.. a photo would help. Sounds like the pipe froze which could be the same problem with your water pump.

For tight spaces behind sinks, plumbers use a basin wrench. Would that work? It would be smaller than your hand.

If you have a leak somewhere, that water pump will run constantly. Based on what you're saying here, you probably have a leak. I'd tackle this item first and then make a decision on the water pump.

I've been on the road camping and the Internet is very spotty and this is the first good connection I have had.

Thanks 007matman for the input on a number of my issues.

This Thread deals with the shower taps having a crack and need to be replaced. I tried once before but ended up with the scars to prove it. I know the wrench you are talking about that plumbers use and mine is at home in Manitoba. The leak does not prevent having a shower, thankfully, but the tap assembly does need to be replaced.

The space in behind is accessed via a 6" hole in the shower stall. There is a screw on panel covering the hole. I'll have to get some filleting gloves to wear and should be able to disconnect the fittings. I'll let you know how that goes.

I replaced the water pump and all is good there.

The hot water tank issue appears to have corrected itself or at least has worked the times I have put it on. Mostly run the tank on electric. I still have to check out the board etc. for the HW tank.
