The level of maintenance depends on the complexity of the system. Some elements may include:

  • Filtration – check and clean any pre-filters
  • Tank – clean any debris that may be in the tank. Check for any leaks or cracks. Ensure the fittings are tight.
  • Pump – check and clean the pump suction screen. Cover the pump if it is being subjected to harsh elements, like heavy rain or excessive dirt.
  • Winterization – remove pump and store in warm location. Drain pipes and the tank to prevent breakage in areas where hard freezes occur or install a heater.
