Building safety is very important and it is a major consideration in coming to a decision over installations into it.

A proper pump system takes care of water from the drainage system in the basement. It helps to ensure that your home or place of business is always dry and free from safety hazards. It also removes the risk of electrocution within due to water left unattended in the building after heavy rain. Pumps automatically activate when water levels rise to a certain level. They suck in the water and dispose outside your building. For safety and for the protection of your property, pumps are an excellent investment. At NY Pump & Motor Repair we have been installing pumps since 1941, today we want to give an overview about pumps and pump installation in NYC.

What affects the cost of installation?

Type of pump
There are different types of pumps with unique peculiarities and advantages. The choice is usually between plastic and metal. With a plastic pump, you can be sure of its ability to withstand corrosion. It will however not function under high pressure reducing its efficiency. Metal pumps are better suited to high pressure but their parts are more susceptible to corrosion. Replacing metal parts can also prove to be very costly as the cost of replacements can rise to twice the amount it would cost for plastic parts. It’s a matter of getting the pump that suits your needs based on your building.

Floor type
Depending on what type of floor you have in the basement, the cost of pump installation may vary. Costs are sure to rise where the floor is made of cement. This is because they are thicker and require a lot of effort and labor to breakthrough them. Gravel or dirt floors will cost less as they require less labor and allow for speedy pump installation.

Signs you should replace your pumps

Electrical problems

If electricity is being supplied to your pump and it does not turn on, this may be a sign that something is wrong. If you find yourself experiencing this problem with your pump, you should take steps to rectify it as soon as possible. This is particularly important because of the very damaging effects that may occur when electricity and water are left to react. If the electrical problems persist, a swift replacement of the pump is recommended as the safest option.

For every machine, there will be noise, however there are normal noises that indicate it's running properly and all other noises that indicate a problem. If you notice incessant noise that differs from  the norm in your pump, chances are that some of your parts are worn out or damaged. Worn out or faulty parts reduce the efficiency of your pump and will cause total breakdown at a certain point.

It is usually recommended that you perform limited preventive maintenance after every eight hours of the pump service. Full industrial pump maintenance should be done after 250 hours of operation. The times of maintenance along with problems detected should be recorded for future reference. Moreover, it is important that the technician refers to the manufacturer’s manual when performing the maintenance on the pump to ensure compliance with the best standards.

Safety should be the first consideration. The pump should be shut down and allowed to cool before any maintenance is done on it. However, before the pump is shut, the technician should check the following; heat, noise, speed, flow, strain, vibration, pressure, power consumption, the presence of leakages and emissions, liquid level and any suspected product contamination. These elements provide important clues to the likely problems in your pump.

Engine fluid levels and the condition of engine fluids should be checked after every eight hours for engine driven pumps. During excessively hot or cold weather, coolant specifications should be adjusted.

The levels of the fuel systems, as well as the coolant, should be at the maximum level or just below the maximum. Do not wait for these elements to go to the minimum. The chances are that the pump will dry them up within the next eight hours.

Where the pump engine is cooled by the use of fans, the fans should be clean and free from debris. The air filters should be checked after every 250 hours of operation. The engine oil should be the manufacturer recommended oil type and clean. The disposal process for the oil should be compatible with the environment-friendly practices.
