It sounds like one of your toilet cisterns could be overflowing.

Hi it sounds like the flow switch in ur pump is failing it will need a new one as they are not something you can just take out and replace easily hope it helps but check water isn't flowing especially from ball cocks somewhere first

is it a positive or negative head pump ? , either way if it is a normal head pump water is moving in system causing it to work the flow switch on the cold or hot side, if a negative head then the system is loosing pressure somewhere, this often is caused by wc fill valves letting by.

Sounds like you have either a faulty shower cartridge or tap cartridge, and it could be letting by water very slowly, check for dripping shower head or dripping taps 👍
