Pump Installation and Repair

Pipes give water a path to travel, but it’s the pumps that power the journey. Whether there’s too much or not enough water or just an awkwardly located destination, a properly installed and maintained pump can mean the difference between comfortable and condemned. From booster to sump to fire pumps, We can help keep your building running smoothly.

Preventive Maintenance

The first step in proper pump maintenance is identification. Make a list of all the pumps in the building and periodically perform a regular inspection to be sure each one is working and properly maintained. Before pumps break, there is usually some sign of wear and tear. We have the experience to see those warning signs from a block away and can advise you on the proper course of action. Pump checks should be a part of your normal maintenance program and we can help.

Pump Repairs and Replacement

Plumbing and heating systems don’t function without a system of pumps. Pumps found within a building include, but are not limited to, the building house and hot water circulation pumps, air conditioning, sump, condenser water, ejector, booster, vacuum and condensate pumps. M.A.C. Stewart Plumbing has worked on all of these for years and we know how and when to repair and replace each type.

Pressure Switch

Adjusting Well Pump Pressure Switches
The stopping and starting of jet and submersible water pumps is controlled by a pressure switch. The pressure switch is typically preset correctly for the application. If the cut-off or cut-on pressure needs to be changed

Barrie and Bradford Sanitary Pump Installation

Sanitary pumps are used to transport and meter solutions, slurries, and colloids of food and agricultural materials in operations such as food processing that require cleanliness. There are four basic types of sanitary pumps: centrifugal, positive displacement, jet, and airlift. Centrifugal pumps apply centrifugal force to generate velocity, use rotating impellers to increase velocity, and push fluids through an outlet valve. Positive displacement pumps use rollers, gears, or impellers to move fluid into a fixed cavity so that when liquid exists, the vacuum that is created draws in more fluid. Jet pumps force fluid through a nozzle, converting the fluid’s energy into velocity energy. Airlift pumps mix air or gas with the liquid media so that the air-liquid mixture, with a lower specific weight than the liquid, rises in the pipe and is discharged above the level of the liquid.   

Sanitary pumps are available with a variety of features. Adjustable speed pumps can operate at speeds selected by an operator while continuous duty pumps maintain performance specifications at 100% duty cycle. Run dry capable pumps can operate without pumped fluid or external lubrication for an extended period of time. Some wastewater pumps include a backup battery, grinding mechanism, pressure gage, control panel, level control device, thermal overload protection, strainer, filter, or suction. Other wastewater pumps are belt-driven, close coupled, explosion-proof, frame mounted, hygienic, jacketed, sealless, self-priming, portable, or are configured to pump sticky or stringy materials.  Multistage, reversible, plug-in, and washdown duty capable devices are also available. Sanitary pumps can move media either vertically or horizontally, depending on the direction of the pump stator / rotor assembly. 

A positive displacement pump makes a fluid move by trapping a fixed amount and forcing (displacing) that trapped volume into the discharge pipe.

Some positive displacement pumps use an expanding cavity on the suction side and a decreasing cavity on the discharge side. Liquid flows into the pump as the cavity on the suction side expands and the liquid flows out of the discharge as the cavity collapses. The volume is constant through each cycle of operation.

General explanation: Like most pumps, a centrifugal pump converts rotational energy, often from a motor, to energy in a moving fluid. A portion of the energy goes into kinetic energy of the fluid. Fluid enters axially through eye of the casing,is caught up in the impeller blades,and is whirled tangentially and radially outward until it leaves through all circumferential parts of the impeller into the diffuser part of the casing. The fluid gains both velocity and pressure while passing through the impeller. The doughnut-shaped diffuser,or scroll,section of the casing decelerates the flow and further increase the pressure.

Circulating pumps are often used to circulate domestic hot water so that a faucet will provide hot water instantly upon demand, or (more conserving of energy) a short time after a user's request for hot water. In regions where water conservation issues are rising in importance with rapidly expanding and urbanizing populations local water authorities offer rebates to homeowners and builders that install a circulator pump to save water. In typical one-way plumbing without a circulation pump, water is simply piped from the water heater through the pipes to the tap. Once the tap is shut off, the water remaining in the pipes cools producing the familiar wait for hot water the next time the tap is opened. By adding a circulator pump and constantly circulating a small amount of hot water through the pipes from the heater to the farthest fixture and back to the heater, the water in the pipes is always hot, and no water is wasted during the wait. The tradeoff is the energy wasted in operating the pump and the additional demand on the water heater to make up for the heat lost from the constantly hot pipes.

While the majority of these pumps mount nearest to the hot water heater and have no adjustable temperature capabilities, a significant reduction in energy can be achieved by utilizing a temperature adjustable thermostatically controlled circulation pump mounted at the last fixture on the loop. Thermostatically controlled circulation pumps allow owners to choose the desired temperature of hot water to be maintained within the hot water pipes since most homes do not require 120 °F (49 °C) degree water instantly out of their taps. Thermostatically controlled circulation pumps cycle on and off to maintain a user's chosen temperature and consume less energy than a continuously operating pump. By installing a thermostatically controlled pump just after the farthest fixture on the loop, cyclic pumping maintains ready hot water up to the last fixture on the loop instead of wasting energy heating the piping from the last fixture to the water heater. Often installing a circulation pump at the farthest fixture on hot water circulation loop due to limited available space, cosmetics, noise restrictions or lack of available power. Recent advancements in hot water circulation technology allow for benefiting from temperature controlled pumping without having to install the pump at the last fixture on the hot water loop. These advanced hot water circulation systems utilize a water contacting temperature probe strategically installed at the last fixture on the loop to minimize the energy wasted heating lengthy return pipes. thermal insulation applied to the pipes helps mitigate this second loss and minimize the amount of water that must be pumped to keep hot water constantly available
