Tuesday Tip: Use Your Checklist at Start-up!

Last week, we talked about the importance of having your Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Manual handy for maintenance and repair on your pump—those are great times to reference your guide. Another great time though, is when the pump arrives!

The O&M manual will help familiarize you with the pump operation, and importantly should have a checklist of steps that you should follow to ensure the proper and safe operation of the pump. Below is graphic of a generic start-up checklist. These are good general procedures, but your O&M manual will have a list specific to your pump model—and it may be different than what is listed below, as in the case of refrigeration pumps. Refer to your O&M manual for your specific pump.  

You should address each of these points to successfully start-up your pump! Be safe in your pump operations.
