Valve Vault
Inspect interior coating (cracks, blisters, loose material, exposed concrete, etc.)
Inspect paint on all mechanical piping (cracks, blisters, loose paint)
Inspect alignment of discharge piping
Verify pressure gauges are in place and the correct type
Check and verify opening of hatch
Verify all required signage has been provided (Confined Space, OSHA, etc.)
Ensure drain line is at grade from valve vault to wetwell
Ensure alignment of discharge piping between wetwell and valve vault
Verify that seal-offs are sealed with sealing compound
Verify that pump motor leads are a continuous run from pump to control panel
Verify the usage of stainless steel strain reliefs on all pump and float cords
Verify that bubbler line is sealed off in conduit
Verify seal-offs are located in vault, and that all conduit penetrations are grouted

Ensure that ground rods are accessible and have risers installed for access per specification
Control Panel
Ensure that wiring schematic is in door pocket
Ensure that "control" side of panel is oriented facing the wetwell
Verify UL labeling
Inspect enclosure for chipped paint or other damage
Utilize mil-thickness gauge to verify proper DFT per specification
Verify signed-off electrical inspection report from governing electrical inspector
Verify all pilot lights are operational
Verify all wires are labeled
Verify all placards are in place
Verify all wiring debris has been removed from enclosure
General inspection of field wiring
Conduct operation test of controls
Pump manufacturer to supply additional motor nameplates (crew to place on interior door)
Specialty products mounted and placed in interior of control panel
Telemetry System
Visually verify all components have been provided and pre-wired (radio, antenna, all associated wiring, alarm points, etc.)
Check communication link to base station
Inspect field wiring
Ensure that standard mast and antenna are supplied (standard anchoring method)
Operations Test - Pump System
Ensure contractor and contractor's representatives are present during start-up (electrician, control panel manufacturer, pump manufacturer, mechanical, etc. - generator manufacturer optional)
Verify pump rotation, reverse leads if necessary
Throttle valves while filling force main, if applicable
Draw-Down Test - Calculate actual GPM and compare to design specifications (check both pumps)
Add water to system and/or simulate flow; confirm operation of liquid level control system
Inspect sealing flange of pump for proper seal (no leaks)
Pull pumps and extract from wetwell; ensure clearances are maintained and pumps travel smoothly
on rail system; check pump cords for obvious obstructions
Test "high-water" and "low-water" alarms
Note any unusual noises/vibration
Operations Test - Generator
Verify diesel tank is fully fueled after manufacturer's representative has performed load run
Run generator in "manual" mode; check hertz, voltage, etc; verify operation of load bank
Verify certified affidavit of start-up and load testing from manufacturer's representative
Receipt of manufacturer's warranty (2-year)
Test "auto shut-down" on overspeed circuit
Test to see of genset meets decibel requirements of specifications
Simulate power failure (disconnect main breaker); verify automatic start of genset
Verify automatic transfer of power to emergency source; check for proper time delay between sequences
Let run for ten (10) minutes
Restore utility power source; verify automatic transfer, cool-down cycle time, and shut down
Test load bank for proper operation
Ensure that separate circuits are provided for battery charger and block heater
Test block heater and battery charge for proper operation
