Pump Repair & Maintenance

Entrust your pump repair and maintenance to industry experts

From minor repairs to major rebuilds, rely on Calkins to extend the life of your equipment and keep it running at optimal performance.

Calkins people are like your people: We’re hands-on. When we do a maintenance or repair job for you, we examine, tag and log everything step and part. Compared to our competition, maybe we go a little overboard in the thoroughness department. But after more than 35 years working with maintenance managers, technicians and engineers, we’ve learned that our most important job is to make your job easier. That’s the Calkins Value.

Pump Repairs

Calkins factory trained technicians are on-call to quickly diagnose and repair a wide range of pump issues. We use the latest technology to get your equipment back up and running, and on completion we can deliver a summary report to aid your reporting, PM and trending processes.

Some pump repairs require service at our Rochester NY location. We’ll handle the project from start to finish: removal from your facility, repair at our shop, reinstallation and testing back at your facility. Every project can include a summary report documenting the required repairs and parts.

Seal Repairs

Improve seal life and extend reliability with Calkins seal repair service:

  • All components are cleaned, measured, inspected and pressure-tested
  • We rebuild and/or replace parts as needed and pressure test your cartridge mechanical seals
  • With our Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) software, we can log and monitor the MTBF, identifying the ‘bad actors’ to help you improve your seal life and reliability.

Pump Maintenance & Inspection

Keep your pumps running at optimal performance with our comprehensive maintenance service:

  1. We start by cataloging each pump make, model & serial number and photographing the pump & motor tags. When we talk, we’ll always be on the same page.
  2. Next, we use factory-certified diagnostic tools (e.g. temperature meter, vibration pen, internal camera) to identify problems and assign a color grade on the severity of the problem. We often perform laser alignment analysis on idle pumps at the same time.
  3. As a final step, we submit a Calkins Project Inspection Book for your review. You are the one who decides when to do repairs and maintenance service.
