REPAIRS & MAINTENANCE
JOCKEY PUMP REPAIR
A jockey pump is a small pump used in a fire protection system to maintain system pressure when the main fire pump is not running. It is typically used in high-rise buildings, large warehouses, and other buildings with a large amount of piping in the fire protection system. The jockey pump is designed to keep the system pressure within a specified range, which ensures that the system is always ready to deliver water to the sprinklers in case of a fire.
The jockey pump is usually set to operate at a pressure slightly higher than the normal system pressure, and it will start automatically when the system pressure drops below a certain level. Its purpose is to prevent the main fire pump from starting unnecessarily, which can cause wear and tear on the pump and increase energy costs.

WATER TANK RELINING
Over time, water tanks can develop cracks, leaks, and other damages due to various factors such as age, weathering, chemical exposure, and improper maintenance. These damages can compromise the tank’s structural integrity, reduce its capacity, and contaminate the stored water, posing health risks to humans and animals.
Water tank relining involves repairing and re-coating the tank’s interior with a protective lining material that creates a barrier between the stored water and the tank’s surface. The relining process typically includes the following steps:
- Drain the water tank
- Clean and prepare the tank’s interior surface by removing any debris, rust, or contaminants
- Inspect the tank for damages and repairs them as necessary
- Apply a primer coat to the tank’s surface to enhance adhesion
- Apply a coating material, such as epoxy or polyurethane, to the tank’s surface
- Allow the coating material to cure and dry
Water tank relining can extend the tank’s lifespan, improve its performance, and reduce the risk of contamination and leaks. It is a cost-effective alternative to replacing the entire tank, which can be expensive and time-consuming. However, water tank relining requires specialized equipment, materials, and expertise, and should only be performed by qualified professionals like Affordable Fire Services.
