Phil Selwyn invents and develops a modern alternative to the traditional zero energy ram pump. By using a new flexible rubber valve, (venturi valve) with a profile similar to an aircraft wing, it allows for a more compact in-line design.
The first of many patents are granted for the Papa Pump.
The first metal version of the Papa Pump is sold.
The design is refined and a new engineering composite material is used for the main pump components. The non-corrosive element of the construction gives the pump a much longer life. The new composite pump hits the market.
Over 1000 Papa Pumps sold worldwide. Pumps are sold around the world through distributors in many countries.
The Seradisc Filter is produced - a water filter with a larger surface area, fully adjustable to conditions, a unique design to reduce vortexing and a polymer construction which will not degrade. The result is a more efficient water extraction and filtration.
New products hit the market! Water Powered Technologies develop the Hydromentum Rainwater Harvesting System for rainfall capture which offers a ‘pump and store’ zero energy solution for larger buildings.

Another important company development is the Venturo Pump, the world's first large scale zero energy ram pump aimed at the utility market requiring high volume water transfer.
The Venturo can pump up to 30,000m³ per day using nothing more than the power of moving water.
New products development from our company. Our products will become even more relevant in a world of more challenging water shortages, higher fuel costs and an increasing market for tried and tested ‘green’ solutions.
