Like all mechanical equipment, a submersible pump too brings with it a slew of maintenance problems as it ages. There comes a point where it becomes easier and more economical to replace the submersible pump as opposed to getting it fixed. Submersible pumps are quite similar in construction and require little technical knowledge when installing. Here are a few steps you can follow in order to replace a submersible pump.
- Turn off the brake pump and makes sure that there is no water flowing through the system. Wait for five minutes after you have shut off the pump and check if any residue water is leaking into the system.
- Once you are sure that the pump is sufficiently shut off, remove the well head cap that is held together with bolts. This will allow you to remove the pump set up with ease. It might require some mechanical finesses in order to remove the pump set up from its housing, but you can do it with a little effort.
- Once you have removed the pump set, it is then time to replace it with the same or a similar model pump. If you are unsure of the pump model that will work as a suitable replacement, you can contact your plumber for help.
- Before installing your new pump, make sure that the plumbing is sturdy enough to accommodate the new pump. Pipes that carry water tend to lose their structural integrity with use over time. Hence it is recommended that you replace the pipes along with the pump.
If you are unsure if your pump is properly fitted, it doesn’t’ hurt to take a second opinion form a plumber. This will ensure that your pump is free of any leaks, which can hamper its operational efficiency. At NSA Kaiksow, we deal in some of the best quality submersible pumps in Bahrain.
