Situation:

A prestigious educational institute was using our High Speed Monoblock Pump (LBH SERIES) to irrigate its expansive lawns with sprinklers.

One day their gardener noticed that the water discharge was not as it used to be. He informed the administrative department about the same and they in turn called up our toll-free helpline number to register a complaint.

 

 Notes:

  1. Customers can register a complaint by calling our toll-free number, after which they will receive a text message with information about the complaint as well as the contact details of our service engineer.
  2. Our Engineer usually calls up to fix an appointment as per the electricity schedule of the area - as there are frequent power disruptions in some places.

 

Our service engineer reached the site as per the pre-scheduled appointment.

 

Observation: 

Our service engineer reached the location and immediately began his inspections to verify the complaint and identify the root cause of the problem.

 

  1. Power Supply: As always, our engineer first checked the pump’s power supply. After inspecting the connections, our engineer turned on the power supply. He noticed that the quantity of water being fetched by the pump was very low.
  2. Pump Fan: After checking the power connection, our engineer inspected the shaft (motor fan) – but it was rotating in the right direction.
  3. Leakages: After the main inspections were done, our engineer moved on to check for any leakages - but he did not find any. While checking for leakages, our technician suddenly noted the presence of an “extra valve” on the suction line.

 

Extra Valve On Suction Line

 

Note: The direction of the normal rotation is usually engraved on the cover of the pump in the shape of an arrow. It is a good indicator of the normal functioning of the pump.

 

Solution:

The valve on the suction line was drawing in air, thereby impacting the performance of the pump.

Our technician changed the valve & closed it. then reconnected the supply line to the pump. He then restarted the pump to check it. This time they found adequate quantity of water coming from the discharge pipe.
