  • Emptying and wash down of sumps
  • Testing of all alarms
  • Non-return valve to be removed and checked
  • Full report detailing all electrical readings and photos of major components to be issued

The 4th year involves a major service which includes changing of the following components:

  • Bearings
  • Mechnical seal & Non-return valve

All pumps and equipment are explosion proof due to the criticaility of the barrier.

Industrial Pump System

All pump systems consist of mechanical devices which require maintenance periodically.The frequency of maintenance depends on the demands, loads of a system and how critical the application. Routine maintenance to a pump system is critical for longevity and reliability.

Common Pump Issues:

Sewage pump system failures can be caused by increasing amounts of blockages within the pumps and valves, which trigger unreliability- meaning the pump could fail at any given moment without any prior warning- and result in sewage flooding. Pump downtime can cause inconvenience to your business and emergency call-outs are often expensive and can require tankering.

Unmaintained booster sets can result in inconsistent water pressure and ultimately cause failure of your water supply. Typically on a cold water system, it will be the non-return valve or pressure vessel which fails, causing damage to the pipework resulting in erratic water pressure. A block of flats with no water supply or car wash service with fluctuating pressure soon becomes an emergency.

What are the solutions:

A well maintained pump system is far less likely to give you unexpected issues. Get the peace of mind you deserve! Rest assured that even when your system is running under maximum load, it will remain efficient.

When routine maintenance is carried out by highly trained personnel, it ensures all system components are thoroughly assessed on a regular basis, detecting any issues that are likely to arise whilst also identifying any components that need replacing to allow system efficiency.
