Bore Pump Maintenance
Bore pump failure is often due to motor failure or corrosion to the pump and/or motor. There are several things that you can do to protect your bore pump from failure:
Keep your bore pump serviced – regular servicing can help maintain your bore pump and extend its lifespan
Don’t excessively start your pump – turn your pump on at certain times of the day and be mindful of the recommended number of starts that the manufacturer suggests. Excessively starting your bore pump can result in pump failure.
Letting your pump run dry – your pump will overheat if there is not enough water to keep the motor cool. Measuring the water level in your bore pump is essential if you want to prevent your pump running dry
Understand your water quality – depending on contaminants, sediments and the PH level, your water quality can affect the lifespan of your bore pump. The temperature of your water can also affect your pump with warm water reducing the motor cooling effect.
