my pump wont Work. What Do I Do?

At some stage we are going to have some problems with our household pump. If you notice it noisy or leaking, you should bring it in to us for a service which could include replacing bearings when they get noisy (left too long you could seize the motor which could be terminal) or replacing seals. We will also check the capacitor. Bearing, seals and capacitors will wear out in time and regular servicing will make sure there is no problem.

However, there may be other problems as well from time to time.


If your pump has a pressure tank like this Davey XP350, then check the list.

Mant pumps these days have a Presscontrol , automatic controller on top like this Wilo Pump.

Irrigation Project at WMAC

West Moreton Anglican Irrigation Project

West Moreton Anglican needed extra capacity for their irrigation system pumping from their dam to their farm, playing fields and other grounds. DJ’s Electric Motor and Pump Centre supplied and installed a Grundfos MPC Booster System comprising twin Multistage pumps manifolded together and with Electronic Control Panel. Steve, from DJ’s recommended the Grundfos system because of its high quality and dependability. Dan our technical manager says that we love working with the customer, in this case West Moreton Anglican College, to provide a system that perfectly meets their needs. It’s always a collaboration, never a one size fits all attitude.

The pumpset is fed from the Westmac dam. We used Philmac Electrofusion fittings for the suction line. DJ’s supplies all sizes of fittings and where a permanent connection is needed uses the Friatec electrofusion fittings.
