Anderson Pump Maintenance

The gland should be checked periodically and tightened if necessary. Water should drip from the gland and if over tightened will increase wear on gland packing and plunger rod through lack of lubrication.

Check oil level regularly and change oil at least every 6 months. Belt tension should be checked one month after installation and six monthly thereafter.

We would recommend and annual service – although this can depend on the water quality and duty of the pump. McQuinn Pumps have engineers available to conduct annual servicing either on site or at the Service Centre.
