On-site pump repairs and service
We will visit and provide on-site assessment of rainwater tank water pump operation. In many situations, a pump may be able to be serviced and/or repaired on-site.
Off-site pump repair service
In cases where a water pump requires extensive assessment or repair, we will remove the pump for repair. If the pump is supplying internal plumbing to laundry, toilet or whole of house, we ensure the water switch is set to provide mains water supply. In the case where tank water is the sole water supply, we can install a loan pump to operate until the household pump repair is carried out.
A pressure tank connected to a pump can increase operating efficiency. Pressure tanks come in a variety of sizes and store a reserve amount of water which can be drawn from without operating the pump. This means that if a request is made of a small amount of water, it can be supplied from the pressure tank instead of the pump starting to draw water from the rainwater tank.
Pressure pumps draw more electrical power in the start-up operation. Reducing the number of times your pump has to start reduces the power it consumes.
Pressure tank maintenance
A pressure tank contains an inflatable bladder. If the bladder is deflated it reduces the efficiency and will cause the pump to start & stop more frequently. The bladder pressure should be checked at least every 12 months and re-inflated to the prescribed pressure
Protecting your pump
Did you know that most pump manufacturer’s will void the pump warranty if a pump has been exposed to the elements without protection? Although a pump is all about transferring water, pumps can be irreparably damaged by external exposure to rain, moisture and submerging in water.
If it is not possible to locate the pump in a fully protected location, a pump cover will protect your pump from exposure to the elements and extend the life of your investment.
We supply pump covers in a range of colours to compliment tank colour or the pump location.
