FirstService Project Management was contacted to assess the condition of the existing domestic water booster pump system at the Gold Coast Condo Association. An initial cursory investigation noted that there appeared to be a large amount of water draining from the booster pump drain. FSPM partnered with a FirstService Residential In Good Company Plumbing Contractor to assess the existing pump and devise a plan to replace the existing one with a new system.
This approach allows for both the new and the old system to work simultaneously which should minimize interruption to the building water service to only one day. The scope of work consists of:
Since access to the pump room did not allow for the large booster pump skid to be brought in in one piece, once on-site, some components were disassembled to get them into the pump room, and then, reassembled.
This installation method did not require a complete drain down of the domestic water piping distribution. Instead, the risers were shut down and then isolated to hold them back in lieu of draining.
Everyone who I worked with on this project was accessible and helpful. In particular, Bob Stehman, who served as the site supervisor, was helpful and took the time to explain and answer any questions raised.
