PumpInstallation & Pump Repair

Why Pumps Fail

Although pumps are used in a variety of machines and situations, the basics of a pump are simple: Pumps take liquid or air in and move it to another place with mechanical action. Although the principles behind a pump are straight forward, figuring out why a pump has failed is complex. Many things could go wrong inside a pump mechanism and it takes knowledge & experience to diagnose pump problems quickly. Some of the top reasons for pump failure include:

  • Seal leaks
  • Pump being incorrectly sized for the task or being used in the wrong application
  • Bearing failure because of improper lubrication, the wrong bearings or metal fatigue
  • Impeller wear caused by erosion pressure imbalance
  • Coupling failure due to misalignment, incorrect lubrication,vibration and more
  • Suction problems resulting from clogged lines or undersized suction strainer, or damaged or wrong-sized valves

Our technicians know how to diagnose pump problems in sump pumps, boiler pumps, or any other type of pump. When a pump cannot be repaired, we will replace it correctly so the issue won’t occur again. In addition to pumps, we handle all other types of plumbing repairs.
