High Level Pump Alarm
Last week a customer called in reporting their high level pump alarm was activated and the tank was quickly filling up.
A high level pump alarm is often used in packaged pump stations, sewage treatment plants and septic tanks. The alarm is triggered by the float switch and signals that fluid levels are too high and need investigation. Many high level alarms have an external beacon and sounder to alert people on site so that issues can be identified and resolved before extensive damage is done.
We sent an engineer to site within 24 hours, found the pump had failed and water had got into the electrics. We replaced the pump, tidied the wiring and installed new pipework. This was a pump from stock, which allowed us to react as quickly as we did. At Alton pumps we hold stock of a range of water pumps, sewage pumps and sump pumps at our workshop – if we don’t have the product you require on our shelves we can source it for you through our extensive network of suppliers. High level pump alarms commonly feature a mute button to silence an alarm once the alarm is discovered – but the light will often continue to flash even when the alarm sounder is muted until the alarm is re-set by a trained engineer.
To maintain your pump station or treatment plant it is important to carry out regular servicing to ensure that the pump and panel is functioning correctly.
At Alton Pumps all our engineers are trained to diagnose and repair pump faults – the team are available on a 24/hour emergency call out.
