Step-by-Step Water Pump Installation

Preparation: We begin by clearing the installation area, making sure that the ground is level and the site is stable and safe. This is to ensure that the pump will remain safe and operational in the long term, free from water accumulation, land movements or vandalism.

Installing your water pump: Next, we make final checks before placing your new water pump, such as ensuring the sizing is correct, that it can handle the required flow rate and that factors such as pipe friction, changes in elevation and potential losses in pressure. With everything checked, the pump is then secured in place and plumbed in.

Electrical connection: Now it’s time to power up your pump. We move on to wiring up the pump’s motor while ensuring safe installation and proper grounding, before connecting to a power supply.

Testing and calibration: With your pump in place and powered up, we’ll check it works as it should and adjust its settings to ensure it’s working at peak performance for your requirements.

How Much Does it Cost to Install a Water Pump?

Water pump installation costs vary based on your application and requirements, as well as the site where it’s to be installed.

Water Pump Maintenance Tips

Regular Inspection and Maintenance Routines

By regularly inspecting your water pump and carrying out routine maintenance on easily serviceable parts such as seals and O-rings, it’s possible to prevent the majority of more serious, and more costly, breakdowns. If you can select a regular time when your business is least busy to spend some time checking over your water pump, you could save yourself a great deal of time and money.

Lubrication and Replacement of Worn-out Parts

Any high-wear, replaceable parts can be checked routinely, and lubricated or replaced if needed. Smaller maintenance jobs like this can help deliver serious savings down the line.

Guidelines for Winterising Your Water Pump, if Necessary

Some pumps, if they are located in an area susceptible to drops in temperature during the winter, such as outdoors in shallow bodies of water, will need to be winterised. If water is allowed to freeze inside a pump or any of its connecting fittings, the expansion caused by the formation of ice could crack the pump or fittings.

In many cases, your water pump will be safe from freezing, but if you do need to winterise your pump, it’s a relatively simple procedure:

  • Locate your pump’s drain plug and drain any water from inside it
  • Remove your water pump from its location
  • Flush your pump with food grade propylene glycol
  • Get it as dry as possible inside and out – if possible, you could use pressurised air to push water out (don’t use heat as this could also warp the pump or damage seals and O-rings)
  • Store the pump somewhere warm and dry for the course of the winter

Declaration

When replacing a water pump, what else should you replace?

When considering a new water pump installation, there are a few other components you should consider refreshing at the same time. All seals, O-rings, and other pressure-related seals related to the water pump should be renewed to prevent any leaks.

You should also take the time to check any pipes and other fittings around the water pump, looking for any signs of damage or wear, especially if your old water pump had a serious malfunction or was faulty for some time.  

How long can you go without replacing your water pump?

This depends entirely on your application and how much you use your water pump. However, preventative maintenance can go a long way to extending the lifespan of your water pump. 

How many years should a water pump last?

Again, this will vary based on application and frequency of use, and regular preventative maintenance will help keep your pump running for longer. Some manufacturers may also offer warranties and guarantees, meaning that you can be assured of a certain number of years of use.
