Energy Saving for Sustainability

Mains Water Comparison

The Papa Pump uses water from a local natural source.  Mains Water (or Public Water Supply) costs vary dependent on country and region. For this comparison we have used the cost of mains water in the South West region of the U.K. (2016) delivering 5000m³ of water per year.

Borehole/Well Comparison

Boreholes and Wells are susceptible to fluctuating water tables and many of our customers have reported wells and boreholes drying up. The Papa Pump uses surface water and is relatively unaffected by the water table. These figures use the comparison of a 40m deep borehole which requires electric pumps and delivers 5000m³ of water per year to a height of 30m.

Diesel Pump Comparison

The Diesel Pump will require constant refueling. The Papa Pump needs no attendance. These figures show the estimated costs of running a diesel pump supplying 5000m³ of water per year.

In a recent case study, a farmer who had replaced his diesel pump with a Papa Pump was pleased with the cost savings, but more pleased to lose the daily and time-wasting chore of having to constantly re-fuel his pump.

Electric Pump Comparison

Electric pumps are notoriously unreliable and require frequent repairs and servicing.
These results show the estimated costs of running an electric jet pump with a supply head of 6 metres to deliver 14,000 litres of water a day to a height of 30 metres.

CO2 Emissions

A Papa Pump will not only save you money, it will also help the environment. This graph shows the estimated amount of CO2 emissions generated by pumping 20m³ per day to a height of 100m over a period of 10 years.

Pump and Store for Sustainability

The benefits of using a Papa Pump in a pump and store system is that you can:

• move water to where you need it
• protect your natural watercourse
• reduce time for maintenance/repairs
• reduce running costs and bills
• have a sustainable system for generations to come.

Storing the water will also alleviate water shortage problems from dry periods or short term demands on the supply.
