Troubleshooting Pump Problems the Easy Way


In any problem analysis, we have to specify the problem, check whether there is any deviation from the normal condition, identify the possible causes, evaluate the possible causes and then confirm the true cause.

Pumps or other machinery will give tell tale signs when they are not working properly. An observant pump user will be able to avoid major breakdowns or damage if the problem is corrected early.

In order to solve any pump problem, we need to notice the symptoms carefully so as to determine the most likely causes. Instruments like pressure gauges are very helpful and should be installed in the pumping system.

Very often we do have to rely on our 5 senses to pinpoint the exact symptom. Normally, pump problems can be classified into Suction Related, System Related, or Mechanical Related. It can also be a combination of these.

Most of the system related problems occur because of design flaw. For example, the designer may have chosen the wrong pump whose characteristic does not match the system requirement. Suction related problems are usually caused by air lock that are due to a variety of reasons...

The effects of mechanical related problems could manifest themselves as suction related problems - air leaks in the system, worn out impellers, and mouth rings - but the most common symptom is the presence of vibration and abnormal noise in the equipment.

DiagnoPump, pump troubleshooter has been created for pump users and sellers to help them find the solution quickly. Arranged so that the easiest (and often overlooked) causes are examined first, it could be a very useful tool.

If you are a beginner, you can start the troubleshooting from the very first steps. More experienced users may want to start from the later stages in the symptom list. The symptoms have been identified to make it easy to zero in on the correct ones. The symptoms have been arranged as:

1. No Flow, No Pressure - No water delivered at all
2. Low Flow and Low Pressure - Pump does not deliver sufficient water or Pump does not deliver water after some time or Insufficient pressure developed
3. Short Lifespan of Shaft Seal or Packing - Shaft seal or Gland Packing does not last long
4. Short Lifespan of Bearings, Noisy Operation - Bearings do not last long or vibration and noisy operation or overheating of parts or seizure of bearings
5. Pump Trips - Pump stops by itself or Excessive power consumption

With this easy pump troubleshooter, anyone could easily pinpoint the causes in a very short time.

The usefulness does not end there - any pump distributor or seller can also make use of it to sell their own product! They are able to insert their own names and Companies into the FREE software and distribute it to anyone they wish as goodwill.
