While there are many types of pumps available, they all serve the same basic function, which is to move water (or another fluid) from one location to another. With this in mind, it’s easy to see why it’s important to keep your pumps in good working order, as the prospect of fluids seeping into places where they don’t belong is not one that bodes well for the surrounding area or anything in it. No matter what you use it for, the best way to keep your pump in good repair is to get it regularly serviced by a professional team like ours at Pat’s Pump & Blower. In this article, our team will go over some signs to look for in order to tell when it’s time for pump service.
- No Flow. One clear sign that you need pump service is if the water stops flowing like it should. When this happens, it means that the pump is no longer able to move the fluid through the pipes to its intended outlet.
- Sputters or Spurts. Another sign that you need pump service is if the flow of fluid starts to sputter or comes in spurts instead of flowing smoothly and steadily. These sputters are a sign that air has entered the pipes, creating bubbles that interrupt the flow of fluid.
- Low Pressure. Lastly, if the pressure of the water or fluid has become noticeably weaker over time, you need pump service. Our team will thoroughly examine and adjust every part of your pump to ensure that it gives you optimal performance once again.
