Chances are that your facility has several pumps performing various tasks. Pumps are necessary for the smooth operation of your building whether they are used for HVAC, domestic water, or process. To keep pumps running properly, it’s prudent to keep a regular maintenance schedule using a pump maintenance checklist. Here’s how:
The first thing you need to do is determine a maintenance frequency. It is always a good idea to consult manufacturer’s guidelines, but remember it isn’t in their best interest to keep your equipment running efficiently forever. They want it to eventually wear out so you will have to replace it. The other thing to consider is when it makes the most sense to do it. Are you going to shut down a tower pump or a boiler feed water pump when the system is on-line? Not unless you have to. The time to do it is when you are cleaning the towers or punching the boiler tubes and the system is already down. Use common sense and institution knowledge in making the final decisions as to time and frequency.
