It takes me about 2 days to reassemble all of the pump parts the control parts and charge the hydraulic control system.... Then the full begins as we fill the lines and get it charged to 100 psi.
It takes 3 long days in the fall to winterize the system properly. We reap the benefit in the spring when it is time to charge it back up.
This year we had zero broken heads during start-up!.... I guess there has to be a first for everything.
We did have an issue with the jockey pump intake. A broken pipe joint fitting had to be repaired at the machine shop and a torn foot valve had to be made/replaced. After those two repairs were complete the system was charged in a few hours and ready for another season.
The control system charge pump, pressure tank and all of its wonderful fittings.
It's a greasy job that takes lots of muscle but with good help any job goes smooth.
