Don’t confuse Warranty with Maintenance
We hear it all the time, “we don’t need a service yet, it’s still under warranty”
Your pumping station is like a car. It may have a manufacturer’s warranty but I’ll still need maintaining during the warranty period due to the nature of its operation, pumping waste water.
Think of it like this;
Pump Seals – like brake pads, have a limited lifespan due to wear
Pump Oil – Like a car, it needs regular monitoring and the occasional drain and refill
Pump Impellers – like your alloys should be free of chips and scuffs
Float Switches – Like your wiper blades, need to stay clean to operate correctly
Control Panel Components – like your Engine Control Unit (ECU) needs to be monitored and occasionally updated
Valves – Like your fuel filter the have the potential to block and stop the system
On a serious note, some building insurances can be void if there is no maintenance plan in place on critical pumping stations.
Take care of your systems for the most reliable results.
