If your community golf course has a pumping station that is more than two decades old, you may be wondering if you should continue dealing with repairs or if it is time to replace the golf course pumps. Here are tips that can help you decide how to proceed and how to advise your members who have a say in the decision.
First, look at the service records of your golf course pumps to show your members how often the pump station has been out of service and how much it has been costing for repairs. It doesn’t hurt to show them any turf problems you’ve experienced because of water shortage issues due to poorly-performing golf course pumps. You can also explain to them that it is best to time the replacement of golf course pumps. You want it done before your current system fails completely and definitely before over-seeding. Pump stations are built per spec, so they are not an off-the-shelf quick solution — planning ahead is a wise way to go.
Second, work with a professional that services and repairs golf course pumps so you can get an accurate picture of the health of the system and its potential for continued performance without issues. They will also be able to give you an estimate of the remaining lifespan so you can set up your capital expenditure budget.
