Pump Station Startup Checklist Mobile App
This Pump Station Startup Checklist Mobile App is designed to assist the contractor and the area sewer district in the startup process.
How does it work?
Use this form template to best install sewage pumping stations through proper inspection protocol outlined in this form. As an engineer, use this inspection and maintenance checklist to best fulfill your role in making sure a pumping station is running properly from an engineering perspective. As a project manager, ensure and record that the pump station design is being carried out during construction according to the design standard. Use this app's reporting feature to run convenient report PDFs, exportable and shareable in real time.
The District divides the process into four phases, based upon the activities and personnel involved: Phase 1 consists of the pre-demonstration items: to ensure that the contractor has installed the equipment correctly and that each manufacturer has field-verified that their specific devices meet the criteria for warranty. This phase is completed by the contractor, observed by the inspector, and (except for the specific FAT items) confirmed by the design engineer. The District has limited involvement. Phase 2 demonstrates that the equipment is installed and operates correctly and prepares for the 10-day test run. This phase is primarily the responsibility of the contractor (and subs). Phase 3 provides a test run, minimal break-in time for the equipment, and specified training to the District staff. This phase is performed and monitored by the contractor (and maybe the design engineer) and ends with the verification that the equipment has completed the break-in period and is in working order (pulling pumps, etc.). Phase 4 is mostly the internal and paperwork close-out for the District.
