    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
