Addressing Maintenance Needs During Spring Break

Posted On Posted on 26th March, 2024 by Dura Pump

Spring break is not just for students; it is the perfect opportunity for education establishments to assess the health of their pump systems while they enjoy a brief pause.

7 Visual Inspections to Conduct

Routine maintenance checks can be made when pump systems are not at full flow. At Dura Pump, we recommend regularly carrying out the necessary visual inspections below. We can do this for you if you need assistance.

  • Check for cracks in expansion bellows.
  • Inspect for corrosion on pipe work.
  • Lubricate bearings, where applicable.
  • Examine mechanical seals for leakage.
  • Monitor temperatures of the motors.
  • Investigate vibrations.
  • Listen to the sound of the motors/pump for failing bearings.

6 Signs Your Pump Needs Attention

When pump systems need attention, there are also some other signs to look out for:

  • Reduced water pressure.
  • Frequent cycling (turning on and off).
  • Unusual noises or vibrations.
  • Discoloured water or the presence of particles.
  • Water leakage.
  • Increased energy consumption.
