Maintaining Your Geotech Sampling Pump

Sampling Pump Maintenance

 

There is a good chance your pumps are getting a power workout this summer! Now is the perfect time to give them a quick maintenance check. A little extra effort now may help to extend your equipment through the season until you can bring it in to Geotech for thorough maintenance during the winter months. Maintenance now may eliminate challenges of missed sampling events due to failed equipment.

It may be a good time to review your pump settings relative to current site conditions. As water tables fluctuate, your pumps may be pumping air late in the season. Submersible pumps cannot be allowed to run dry or they will quickly wear out.

  • Check to make sure that there is no corrosion on the stainless steel parts, corrosion attracts unwanted contaminants and is more reactive than polished steel.

  • If decontamination is required, decontaminate the pump away from the sampling site and follow the prescribed guidelines.

  • Consider having several sets of pre-cleaned equipment available as spares, to help eliminate time-consuming equipment cleaning in the field if the equipment breaks or becomes contaminated.

  • Do not use sampling pumps for well development, they are not made to pump turbid water and the soft internal parts will wear out quickly.

  • Make sure you have plenty of the correct tubing for your type of pump and target analysis.

  • Rinse and dry out submersible pumps before storing.

 

 

Geotech makes three basic kinds of
sampling pump:

Dedicated and Portable Bladder Pumps
