Four Signs Your Sewage Pump Needs Repairs

Surface water pumps, wastewater pumps and sewage pumps typically last a long time before needing repairs, especially if they are well-maintained. If you are concerned about your sewage pump or think you might need repairs, here are some signs you need to call a professional.

There is dirty water in your system

The first thing you may notice is that there is dirty water running through your systems. Pumps are there to filter clean, clear water into your operations. If you are finding dirty water is being pumped through your system, it can seriously impact the effectiveness of your sewage system. It is also an indication that something isn't quite right with your pump.

Your pump won’t start or struggles to start

You may also notice that your pump isn’t starting or struggles to start. This can really impact day-to-day operations, so it’s important to get a professional to take a look. There are a variety of reasons why a pump won’t start, it could be because of electrical problems, frayed wires or a blown fuse. It could be that your pump has simply ‘given out’ and needs to be replaced.

Your pump is constantly cycling

Most industrial pumps will cycle on and off, that is just how they work. However, your pump may start to constantly cycle making it hard to know what stage it is in or if it is doing its job properly. If this is the case, you may have an issue on your hands. This could be due to a poorly or improperly adjusted switch, a burnt-out motor or issues communicating commands to turn on or off.

Your pump is making strange sounds

If you notice any strange sounds coming from your sewage pump, wastewater pump or surface water pump, this is definitely something you should pay attention to. You should be aware of clanging or banging noises which would indicate a problem with the overall mechanics or its structure or integrity.
