    Pump Express Services Addresses Growing Need for Upgrades in Aging Pump Systems Across NY & NJ

    Sewage ejector systems that are chronically clogged and HVAC systems that give out in extreme weather are issues that rank high on a list of growing concerns among commercial and industrial facility managers in aging industrial areas of New York and New Jersey. Ed Drejman, who heads Pump Express Services is part of a team that is shifting it’s focus from pump repairs and maintenance to addressing these and other growing job site challenges with innovative pumping equipment characterized by heavy-duty design, high performance and versatility.

    “Some systems we’re called in to service are so old, they’ve started to collapse,” says Drejman. “Even pump systems in newer buildings installed in the 1970s and ’80s, are showing signs of wear. Only much-needed upgrades can prevent continuing breakdowns that increase the damage to an aging infrastructure, and in some cases, threaten public health. We are focused on addressing these issues with a staff trained in the installation and operation of a new generation of pumps suited to current demands.”

    The improper disposal of synthetic wipes, gloves, swabs and other sanitary products has led to a rise in the clogging of commercial and industrial sewage disposal systems. Drejman and his team respond to chronically clogged systems with a variety of commercial-grade grinder pumps, including Liberty Omnivore Grinder Pumps and BJM Shredder Pumps, which provide maximum efficiency and shredding power in a compact, easy-to-install, unit.

    Rise in Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) Use Among Garden State Building Owners Driving Summer Sales at PUMP EXPRESS SERVICES

    With the arrival of summer, building managers across the Northeast must address the spike in cooling system demands and soaring energy costs that accompany hot weather. In recent years, growing numbers of cost-conscious New Jersey building owners have begun calling on Pump Express Services to address these issues by adding variable frequency drives (VFDs) to their HVAC pump systems.

    “Everybody from corporations to homeowners are looking to save money,” says Pump Express Sales Manager Fred Hettinger. “Along with large corporations like L’Oreal, who called us to install VFDs on the Armstrong end-suction pumps that run their HVAC system, we’ve done VFD maintenance for high-end residential clients intent on saving energy and dollars.

    Variable Frequency Drives are used to control the speed of motor-driven pumps and fans. Standard motors start abruptly with a high starting torque and current surges up to 10 times the normal running current. Variable speed drives gradually ramp the motor up to operating speed and thereby conserve energy, lessen mechanical stress, reduce repair costs and extend equipment life. In most cases, VFDs pay for themselves in savings within three years. Continue reading

    PUMP EXPRESS Journeys to Ellis Island to Overhaul Antiquated Sewage Ejector System

    Ellis Island is one of America’s most popular historic sites, visited by 100,000 people last year. Most arrive by boat just as their ancestors did 100 years ago. But for those with the right credentials the island is accessible by motor vehicle.

    Pump Express Services techs currently drive across the small bridge that connects the island to Liberty State Park daily as they work to replace the antiquated Weil sewage ejector pump system that has served the island for the last 30 years. They are replacing the old system with a pair of 900-pound BJM shedder pumps.

    Elllis Island was closed to visitors last November after being hit by Hurricane Sandy but according to Pump Express Sales manager Fred Hettinger, the island’s sewage ejector system was in need of an overhaul long before that. Continue reading

    PUMP EXPRESS SERVICES CASE HISTORY: Switching Out Sewage Pumps for Shredders In a New Jersey Apartment Complex

    The Job Site: A four-building apartment complex in Hackensack, N.J., with a 10 year old Goulds duplex sewage ejector system that is constantly clogging with synthetic debris.

    The Problem: Removing the pumps to service them. The sewage pit the pumps operate in is 30 feet deep and located outside the building right next to a main road. Pump Express Service techs require 4-6 hours to remove, clear and replace the old pumps each time they service them. They have been called back five times in the last six months

    The Solution: The building’s managers have decided that maintaining the old pumps will cost more than replacing them with a pair of BJM shredder pumps specifically designed to shear down tough synthetic debris of the kind that is currently hobbling the system. Continue reading

    How To Troubleshoot A Sump Pump

    With all the media attention that preceded Hurricane Sandy, most East Coast homeowners put testing their basement sump pumps high on their pre-storm to-do lists. Those who didn’t, and experienced flooding as a result of pump failure, probably wish they had. Identifying a pump problem in advance could spare a homeowner thousands of dollars in water damage. The following is our step-by-step how-to list.

    Open the pit that the sump pump sits inside and clear away any debris.

    Pour several buckets of water into the pit. This should cause the pump to turn on and run with an even humming sound. If it doesn’t turn on, or you hear a grinding sound, you should make arrangements to have it repaired. Pump Express Service techs are manufacturer trained to repair sump and dewatering pumps of all makes and models.

    Check the discharge line for leaks. A leaking line should be replaced as soon as possible. Continue reading

    Moonlighting With Pump Express Services: 24/7 Emergency Service in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut

    There are a handful of things that are best done in the middle of the night and replacing a hotel booster pump system is one of them.

    At least that’s what the managers of a 256 room hotel in Morristown, N.J. decided when Pump Express Service staff arrived to replace a booster pump system last fall and discovered that none of the isolation valves in place to cut water flow to the pumps were working. Replacing the valves and the hotel’s 15-year-old booster pump system would require cutting off the hotel’s main water supply and draining the entire 10-floor building – a procedure that was ruled out because it meant closing the hotel and it’s three restaurants for the duration of the job.

    Line freezing was one alternative option. Pump Express Service staff could assemble a chamber around the pipe and then run liquid nitrogen into it until the pipe turned to a block of ice. This time-consuming process would eliminate the need to drain the system but would interrupt water flow throughout the building. Ultimately, this too was nixed. Continue reading
