Pump repairs – Our Wet testing facility in our Workshop

Spa pool pump repairs
Initial Inspection 

We do a visual inspection, then try and obtain a little pump history from the customer, if a repair looks economically viable we will create a job for this unit.

Motor Tests 

We check the motor characteristics. The motor is the most expensive part of the pool pump. There are tests and values that we work to.

Dismantle and inspect internals 

We list and cost what needs replacing and then prepare a quotation to be submitted for approval, usually by email.
