Booster Set Maintenance
To ensure a consistent supply pressure of water from the booster and to identify problems before they turn into major failures there are a number of key items that should be checked regularly.
Motors and Pumps
The pumps and motors are of particular importance along with the mechanical seals which also should be checked and replaced if leaking water to prevent problems with corrosion. Bearings and wear should also be assessed along with any excess noise and vibration.
Expansion Pressure Buffer Vessels
Expansion pressure buffer vessel accumulators should be checked for adequate charge pressure to ensure the pump is not short cycling. This can cause unnecessary wear, fluctuating water pressure or water hammer.
