Experts at Pump Maintenance

A pump maintenance schedule can help keep your pump running efficiently, prevent failures and keep your premises free from disruption. In some domestic and commercial environments, wastewater needs to be elevated to reach the main sewer line, this is where a pump comes in.

When you have an efficient working pump system in place, it can be easy to become complacent and ignore maintenance checks. That being said, efficient pumps don’t stay at the top of their game if they are not regularly maintained. It is recommended by pump engineers that you have your station checked at least twice a year in order to make sure it remains in pristine condition.

A pump provides the pressure needed to move fluids up to the main sewer lines but if they fail or become blocked wastewater can begin to overflow out of the pump station. Not only could this cause a loss of revenue to your business or home through damage and site closures – a damaged pump become costly to repair. For this reason, it is important to carry out regular pump maintenance checks and servicing to keep your pumps running efficiently.

Pump Maintenance Service Plan

Creating a routine pump maintenance service plan will ensure regular cleaning and checks are taking place at a time that suits you. These regular services can help prevent unexpected costs from emergency repairs and gives you confidence in knowing your wastewater is taken care of.

Typically, a service is recommended every 6 months depending on the size of the pump and the frequency of use. When creating a plan, our specialist pump engineers will get to know your business to ensure the timings and details of the plan are tailored to your requirements. This helps us minimise disruption to the day-to-day business of your organisation and keep your pump in fantastic condition.

What’s Included in a Pump Maintenance Service

During a pump maintenance check, our engineers will conduct a full and thorough examination of the pump station in order to ensure it is running smoothly.

During a maintenance check, we examine the pump to ensure there are no leaks, check the oil levels, check the condition of the control panel, clean and check all floats to confirm they activate the pump correctly and also assess the access covers and manholes.

This maintenance prevents any blockages and identifies any causes for concern before they become a problem and cause disruption.

Pump Maintenance FAQ's

How regularly do I need pump maintenance?

It is recommended that your pump undergoes regular maintenance in order to ensure that it remains in great working order; however, how regularly will depend on the type of pump you have and how regularly it is in use. For a typical pump, we recommend that maintenance is conducted every 6 months. That being said, depending on your pump it could range from every 3 months to every 12. All pump maintenance plans are created bespoke to your situation, and the specific pump you have running at your home or organisation.

What does pump maintenance include?

Imagine an MOT for your pump. Previous in the article we gave a broad overview of what pump maintenance can entail; however, it contains a large number of checks in order to ensure that your pump works optimally for the situation it is in. The specific checks depend on the type of pump you have. They may, however, include checking bearings and impeller wear, checking gaskets and for oil leaks, inspecting filling ports, checking the temperature of the pump, and electrical current demands.

How much does pump maintenance cost?

At Metro Rod, we specialise in an efficient and economic service that is designed to help keep your pump maintained in a way that causes minimal disruption to your business. That being said, the cost of your pump maintenance plan depends on a couple of factors. The type, condition, regularity of use, and number of pumps all impact how frequently you get your pumps serviced and thus can impact the price.
