Our team at Pat’s Pump & Blower has extensive experience in working on pumps of all kinds, and you can count on us to help you keep your equipment in great condition. In this article, we will focus on vacuum pumps and go over a few signs that your pump may need to be repaired. If you notice any of the following things happening to your vacuum pumps, just give us a call to get the expert repair services you need.
- Excessive Noise. While vacuum pumps will always be pretty noisy, if you notice that your pump starts getting even louder when it runs, then you may need vacuum pump repair services. An increase in volume or a change in the quality of the sound can indicate a problem with the mechanism—for example, if your pump starts to make rattling noises, it could mean that there are loose parts shaking around inside it.
- Poor Suction. Another sign that you need vacuum pump repair is a decrease in the power of the suction it produces. A pump that loses suction is not doing its job correctly, and we recommend that you have any such pumps inspected right away. Our team has the right knowledge and experience to identify the source of the issue and provide the effective solutions you need to get your pump working properly again.
- Vibration. A third sign that you may need vacuum pump repair services is the pump starting to shake or vibrate as it runs. This effect is usually caused by something in the mechanism coming loose, which makes the system unbalanced and causes it to rock back and forth.
