Making a splash at Ipswich Grammar School

Ipswich Grammar School had a problem. The waterfall which graces their entrance was not working and it was needed as a backdrop for the School Formal photos.

The solution was to call DJ’s Electric Motor and Pump Centre. Dan, our Service Manager and Steve, our resident pump expert both “jumped in” to solve the problem in double quick time. The problem turned out to be a faulty foot valve. This was ordered and replaced and the waterfall was ready for the formal photos.

If you have a pumping problem, like Ipswich Grammar School, just call DJ’s Electric Motor and Pump Centre for expert assistance. We can help with any pumping problem.

My Pump Won’t 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.
