Obvious Signs You Need to Have Your Irrigation Pump Repaired
When you start having problems with irrigation pumps, the first thing to do is identify the source. If a part breaks or malfunctions, you may have to replace the whole irrigation pump. But if your garden is drying out in patches or you see water pooling on the ground, then it might be a sign that an underground pipe has broken.
If you see these signs, it's a good idea to schedule your irrigation pump inspection with a licensed irrigation professional.
The Pump Won’t Turn On
If your pump isn't turning on, follow these steps: check the breaker first and reset it if tripped. If the problems persist, check that your pump is compatible with the power source you're using, and ensure proper ground is present. If the pump gets too little or too much power, check the wire running to the pump. They may have been damaged or cut and without proper power, your pump will not turn on.
There Is No Water
One of the most obvious signs of a faulty irrigation pump is loss of water, low water pressure, or no water at all. Although your pump is working, you’ll want to double-check your lines and valves first. You could try doing this yourself or calling for an irrigation specialist when you need help with your irrigation system. We recommend the latter. They are experts in troubleshooting and will know just what do to to get your system back up and running!
It Isn’t Working Properly
If your system is experiencing performance issues, there may be a blockage that needs to be cleared. You should clean debris out of the intake screen on your foot valve to ensure it can effectively circulate water. Leaves and other outside materials tend to accumulate on the screen and block water flow, which may not only impede your irrigation system's ability to properly deliver or draw water but might also pose a safety risk. If something gets past the intake screen of your pump, it may get trapped in the impeller vanes. It can cause a performance issue with the pump.
You Hear Rumblings of Rocks Inside the Pump
The suction lift is the distance between the water surface and the pump inlet. When this suction lift is too high, it's possible that rocks are getting lodged in the pump, which causes odd pump sounds like a running machine. This noise is known as cavitation, it can harm the internal components of a pump. Sometimes relocating the pump closer to the water source can help, at least for now.
Remember that a clean system means that you'll have fewer problems with your irrigation pump, so keep an eye on it to see if it needs a check-up.
