Fire pumb maintenance include checking power indicating light on the controller to verify that there is power to the pump.Ensuring antifreeze in cooling system heat exchanger and also checking all hoses,fuel lines, and cooling line connections for any leakage and to ensure they are in good condition

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

  •  Check the power indicating light on the controller to verify that there is power to the pump
  •  Check to make sure there is adequate heat in the fire pump room (not less than 40ºF and 70ºF for diesel pumps without engine heaters) during colder months
  •  Check to make sure ventilating louvers are free to operate • Check to make ensure the pump suction, discharge and bypass valves are open
  • • Examine piping, fitting, and connections for any physical damage or leakage
  •  Check tomake sure the suction and discharge gauge pressure reading is normal
  •  Check the system pressure gauge to ensure the system pressure reading is normal Electric Fire Pumps
  •  Check to make sure the transfer switch pilot light is illuminated • Make sure the isolating switch is closed
  •  Check to make sure the reverse phase alarm pilot light is off or normal phase pilot light is on Diesel Fire Pumps
  •  Make sure fuel tank is ¾ full • Check the controller and verify the selector switch is in the automatic position
  • Check to ensure voltage readings on both sets of batteries is normal
  •  Check and verify charging current readings are normal on both sets of batteries
  • If provided, check oil level in right angle gear drive •
  • Check and verify crankcase oil level is normal 2 of 3
  • Check and verify proper electrolyte levels in batteries
  • Check to ensure battery terminals are free of corrosion and connections are tight
  • Check to make sure cooling water level is normal
  • If provided, check to ensure the water jacket heater is operating
  • Check to ensure that antifreeze in cooling system heat exchanger is adequate
  • Check all hoses, fuel lines, and cooling line connections for any leakage and to ensure they are in a good condition
