Is your club considering a new pump station? Here are a few thoughts for you:
Don’t Forget the Basics!
More and more customers are taking the advice of people like us, who live and breathe equipment, repairs, and maintenance. We believe in spending less on gadgets, and more on basic features which enhance the longevity of their pump stations. The added cost to up-size a VFD, add a mid-size jockey pump to complement the output of a pair of 75 HP pumps, or take some additional anti-corrosion measures, can add years to the life of specific components and increase overall system reliability.

Wet Well Problems?
Problems with 40 year old wet wells are not going away—see accompanying photo—and our crews continue to take on new renovation challenges, helping our customers out of tough situations. A big mistake you don’t want to make is to install an expensive new pump station over a failing intake system. Visit our gallery to view some solutions to renovating problem wet wells.

Submersible Sled System vs. Suction Lift Stations
Where the costs for excavation and installing the necessary wet well for a vertical turbine pump application are prohibitive due to rock, steep terrain, or ponds with shallow profiles, many pump vendors promote submersible pumps mounted on sleds, to circumvent the high initial installation cost. Submersible sled systems are certainly cheap up front, but they can be a maintenance nightmare when a pump or motor problem occurs. At ProPump & Controls, we prefer to specify horizontal centrifugal pump stations with automatic vacuum pump systems to guarantee system prime. Carefully designed, these are extremely reliable systems which are easy to install, and much more economical to maintain than a submersible sled system.

Turbine Pump Station Installation Challenges
And for those customers who have the funds for the more difficult and expensive installations, and for whom nothing less than a vertical turbine systems will do, ProPump & Controls will tackle work that leaves others shaking their heads “No.” Check out our website for pictures of some of the more challenging installations we’ve done—safely, effectively, and built for decades of service.
