Metro Rod Bournemouth are recommending that all businesses with a pump station have a maintenance plan in place.

Regular maintenance will help reduce the chance of emergency call outs and faults arising. As it can be very disruptive to a business when a pump station fails it really is in your best interests to have Metro Rod tailor a maintenance plan to you.

Maintenance is essential to any part of a drainage system and a pump is no different, if a pump fails you may see leaks and an overflow of the wastewater. You are probably wondering what our maintenance plans consist of, so allow us to explain. 

Our Maintenance Plans

We are recommending that alongside the one major service of your pump that is carried out yearly, you have a service check every 3-6 months. The number of minor services will depend on the size of your pump and the use it is under. A high demand pump station may need 2-3 interim services a year, whilst a low demand may only require 1 a year as well as one major service each year.

The regular maintenance gives us the advantage of being able to spot problems early on and identify areas that might be a problem in the future. This will help prevent a sudden breakdown. Within the maintenance plan our engineers will check for leaks, check the overall condition of the electrical elements, float switches and guide rails to make sure it is operating as it should be. By not having a maintenance plan you may run the risk of blockages and general wear and tear that weakens the pump. 

If you are yet to have a maintenance plan in place for your pump station then get in touch with Metro Rod who can assist you further. Preventing a problem with thorough maintenance is much better than responding to the problem.
