At Outlook Enterprises we sell Fire pump packing, case gaskets, packing glands, swing bolt assemblies, complete rotating units, new pumps, packing removal tools, etc. Most of which we have in stock at our Denver, CO warehouse.

One of the most common repair kits is a fire pump repack. The area where the shaft penetrates the outer casing of a fire pump needs to be sealed so water will not leak out of the pump. The seal at the point of penetration of the casing is known as the packing. When the packing needs to be replaced the old packing is cleaned and scraped out of the housing and new graphite packing (GFO) is installed. Also, new gland bolts and nuts & washers will be installed.

Additionally, we carry OEM parts for Allis Chalmers, Aurora, Fairbanks, Goulds, Peerless, etc.

Why Maintenance is Vital on Fire Pumps?

If a fire isn’t put out quickly enough, it can soon turn into a disaster. Therefore, the fundamental goal of fire pumps is to safeguard human life and property. But only if a fire pump and related equipment function properly and perform when needed. To do this, we must inspect them at scheduled intervals and make the necessary replacements on time and to a high standard.

If a fire pump is never inspected and therefore never maintenance you have no way of knowing if you will be safe when a fire breaks out. Outlook can help you set up the correct inspection intervals and show you what to look for to ensure your fire pump or pumps perform when called on.

Fire Pump Inspection & Testing Guidelines:

  • Regular testing (at least once a week) to verify that the building’s firefighting water system and fire parts are in good condition will help ensure that defects are not discovered in the event of an emergency. 
  • It is also important to check minor components monthly or at least every six months to avoid major system failures.
  • NFPA regulations require that you test your fire pumps for at least 30 minutes each week. Testing can also help you avoid serious penalties.
