When a pump station fault occurs, a quick response is required to address any issue or underlying problem such as a failed pump, failed control system component or blockage.
Pump station breakdowns can cause huge amounts of inconvenience and disruption to your working day. Whilst it may be tempting to switch the control panel into manual and override the warning lights, we strongly advise getting a professional in to take a look. A simple issue addressed quickly can save a much bigger problem from occurring if left unseen to – causing more inconvenience and unwanted business costs.
Causes of Pump Station Failures
A fault can usually be identified by the warning light and/or audible alarm on your control panel, or if you notice foul smells. Causes for this could be:
- Debris or fat, oil and grease built up in the pump chamber
- A blockage in the pipes leading to the pump chamber
- Wear and tear on the pump
- Electrical faults
- Float faults
- Rust and corrosion
