Inspecting a flooded diesel pump - video
Any machinery that has been damaged by floodwater should be carefully inspected, cleaned and dried out before it is used.
Pat Daley from Daley Water Services describes how to inspect a flooded diesel pump.
Pat explains the steps you should take to inspect the fuel system, the radiator and cooling system, the air intake and exhaust fan, the electrical system, and the pump alignment and discharge.
Always seek advice from a licensed electrician before using machinery that has been submerged.
