Constructing any type of building can be a busy time for all trades on site. Working together to complete a project on time and on a budget can be a tricky business. While time lines are decreasing the importance of getting the job right remains the same.
Do you know the importance of successful cleaning out fire hydrant pumps pipes or fire sprinkler pumps pipes when it involves in main connection? Items such as rocks, concrete, and even rubbish can be found in new connections can be pushed down the line. Even small rocks can get jammed into hydrant landing valves causing the system to lose pressure. Flow testing equipment is another part of the system which is easily damaged by debris. Alternatively, they can go through fire pumps damaging multiple parts of the system.
If any of these foreign items found its way to a pump set you run the risk of:
– Damaging mechanical seals
– Damaging impellers
– Blocking check valves and/or isolating valves
– Blocking inlets to cooling water manifolds causing diesel engines to overheat.
– Damaging the jacking pump
Any of these consequences can cause damage which may cost money and/or time to fix which essentially is what you are trying to avoid.
