25 Jul Lift Station Repair and Pump Replacement
Boca Raton FL, 33428 ( Lift Station Repair and Pump Replacement)
Cause of Problem:
One of the Pumps and Control Panel not working correctly.
Summer time in South Florida means Hurricane and Storm season. Anyone that is local or has been here long enough will tell you. One minute it is sunny with blue skies and the next minute there is a torrential down pour. In this case when when the rains came in the storm system backed up. All the storm drains became full and started to flood the parking lot. The cause of all of this was due to the Lift Station that the storm basins connected to was not running. The pumps inside the wet well where not pumping. The Rhino Rooter Plumber found that the Control Panel the is the brain of the system was malfunctioning and not sending signals needed to engage the pumps. One of the pumps was completely “fried” from running continuously. Which lead to the Lift Station Repair and Pump Replacement.
Rhino Rooter Plumbers first stated off by replacing the Control Panel to the Station. The panel was all pre-wired off site prior to being installed for the specs that are required. The old Panel was removed. The new Control Panel was then installed. The Panel was mounted to the existing stand. Then the existing float switches were connected. Float switches are what sends signal to Panel on when to turn pumps on and off. One of the pumps was under sized and “burnt out”. This pump was replaced with a larger and more durable pump. The Lift Station Repair and Pump Replacement was almost complete. The pump was connected to the discharge pipe, the pipe was a two inch PVC pipe. A new pump should have a new check valve installed on the discharge pipe as well. Pump was then wired to the Control Panel and tested.
