Valley Club Golf Course Irrigation Pump Project
The Valley Club, located in Hailey, Idaho, is set in a location so beautiful and breathtaking that its members come from all over the world to enjoy its ambiance and traditions. Long-time superintendent and head of agronomy at Valley Club, Jerry Flaherty, contacted PPS requesting a proposal to replace his more than 20-year-old Flowtronex pump station with a new and improved, higher capacity system.
Location: Valley Club Golf Course – Hailey, Idaho
Flow Rate: N/A
Boost Pressure: N/A
Customer Challenge: PPS had successfully replaced the original worn out backflushing filters on the station with more efficient suction scanning Amaid filters. Subsequently, PPS was asked to bid on this full pump station replacement project.
- We had to remove the existing pump station from the semi-buried enclosure building using only a service hatch located on the roof.
- We had to incorporate the previously installed Amiad filter upgrades purchased just 5 years before into the new system.
- We also had to increase the size, capacity and overall efficiency of the previous system and filtration.
- We designed and engineered the new system in 3 separate parts enabling it to fit through the service hatch on top of the existing building for installation.
- The new system was also designed to connect to the existing power service, discharge piping, and flush line of the previous system.
- The new system had to be designed and manufactured to maintain the necessary electrical clearance and service space for all the equipment inside the existing building.
Additional Information: Utilizing our advanced 3-D modeling capabilities and our years of experience installing modular packaged pumping systems nationwide, we produced a 3 piece skid that met all of their on site requirements.
The project timeline from concept, design removal and installation was all completed in just 6 weeks! It fit the space perfectly as intended, functioned exactly as expected and was delivered on time and on budget.
This pump station was placed inside an existing enclosure building.
