Spring Preventative Maintenance Checklist
Before you get started, follow all company policies, manufacturer’s recommendations and other safe practices (i.e. lockout/tagout, etc.), and wear proper PPE.
- Visually inspect pumps and any motor vents and windings for build-up from winter.
- Check for any unusual sounds and obvious leaks.
- Make sure all electrical and motor terminations are tight.
- Inspect starter/contactor for arcing, overheating, etc.
- Use a megohmmeter on the windings to check for insulation failure for low insulation readings.
- Don’t forget any unused pumps or motors you have in storage. Spring is the perfect time to inspect them for signs of deterioration, including dust and dirt build-up, and rotate the shaft for lubrication redistribution.
