U.S. Water was recently tasked with replacing the east well pump at the Pelican Bay Water Treatment Facility. The pump had experienced a catastrophic failure, and as it is a critical component in the production of clean drinking water for the surrounding community, time was of the essence for its repair. The responding team members have numerous years of experience with this facility and the individual components within it. They quickly determined that the damage was irreparable and replacements parts were ordered immediately. It was the submersible pump itself that had failed. Normally, removing the old pump and installing the new one is a simple task, but in this case, the old pump had actually broken in half. This added a level of difficulty to the removal process because of the very real chance the lower portion of the broken pump could separate completely during its removal and fall to the bottom of the well. The challenge of removing it would likely be insurmountable, leading to the need to drill an entirely new well. The cost of which would be astronomical. Fortunately, due to the expertise and experience of our crew, they were able to successfully complete the changeover without incident. Good job!
