Keeping your pump bearings well-lubricated can alleviate problems. These tips on bearings from our Installation and Care manual can help.
- Oil level must be correct before unit is started.
- Oil lubricated frames must be installed horizontally and level.
- Grease lubricated motors and frames must be maintained per instructions accompanying the pump. Grease code EP-2 is recommended for most applications. Added grease must be the same type as recommended in the O&M manual.
- Oil and grease should not be mixed.
