Fatty deposits and pumps
People never really give a second thought about what they tip away down the sink – here though is one very good reason why you should! We were called out to a routine 6 monthly ‘Clean and Check’ at the home of a customer who was blissfully unaware of the potential damage that was been done to her pump situated in the kitchen. Our customer was lost for words when the engineer having completed the ‘Clean & Check’ of her domestic pump showed her the bag full of fat deposits that were cleaned away from the pump unit. The fat deposits had almost totally clogged the impeller of the pump unit and if left unchecked would have caused potential damage to the pump unit.
Should you have a basement sump and pump system installed don’t forget to have it serviced. On this occasion the customer was lucky and no damage was done but if left the cost of repairs could of been high. Only through routine pump maintenance was the problem pick up.
An annual basement pump servicing in a majority of cases is required as part of the conditions of your guarantee. To arrange a ‘Clean and Check’ pump service from ourselves simply call 0800 019 9949 or complete our on-line ‘Clean and Check’ request form
