Free water - No Utility Bills - No Running Costs - Zero Carbon

If you have a flowing water source on your land and you are still paying for water either by utility bills or in fuel, maintenance and pump repairs, let's see how much money you can save,
because by installing a Papa Pump you can get...


and this is all done without using any fuel, electricity or carbon!

Cut Carbon

Increasing efficiency on your farm by increasing crop yields.

Reducing the use of fossil fuels is an obvious way to reduce carbon emissions, but consider the effects of better irrigation.  Better irrigation means better yields which leads to more efficiency and profits. Irrigation using a Papa Pump, the pump that uses no electricity or fuel, reduces CO2 which would have been emitted by diesel pumps and also reduces the need to fertilise which in turn, reduces the emissions of Nitrus Oxide.

Pump and Store for Sustainability

If you have access to water from a spring, stream or river and it needs to be delivered to your property, the Papa Pump hydro ram is the perfect solution.  Without the use of any electricity or fuel, it will pump water over long distances and to impressive heights of up to 150 metres.  It works 24/7 365 days/year, rain or shine and because the technology is so simple there is little to go wrong, and so you'll save on time and maintenance.

Pump and Store
The idea is simple - you pump water when it is plentiful to a storage tank at the highest point on your property - to use where and when you need it!  You can gravity feed the stored water to animal troughs, for cleaning down, for irrigation or for your home.  You can even use it for micro generation to help power your home or business.

Flexible Pumping Solutions

Don't worry if you don’t have a flowing water source,
the Papa Pump can work with a small solar or wind alternative.

Water Powered Technologies’ Papa and Venturo Pump Systems operate 24/7 automatically over long periods. They generally utilise reliable flowing water sources, although, unlike many other renewable energy resources such as solar and wind which vary hourly or daily, these water sources tend to vary with seasonality and shifting climatic influences.

However, Water Powered Technologies are developing simple hybrid solutions for dry periods in flat geographies where water tends to be still or slow moving. Water can be pumped to a low level by solar, wind or utility electricity to supplement the supply for the Papa or Venturo pumps. This means that by utilising a very simple combination of solar/wind/electric, the Papa/Venturo can provide water delivery to a wide range of heights and outputs by using our standard and robust equipment.
