Investing in a Papa Pump and saving money
The ethos of Water Powered Technologies is to save water, save time,
save money for our customers and save the environment. Any expenditure on the pump, infrastructure and maintenance should be fully funded by the savings made with ‘return on investment’ achieved within a few years. A good system should be trouble free and last for generations, providing free water for your farm, home or business.
Avoid the false economy of cheap or Do-It-Yourself (DIY) pumps
Cheap build-your-own ram pumps and DIY designs are plentiful online and are ok if you only want to pump a little water to a relatively low height. They contain mechanical moving parts, so you will need to spend time adjusting and repairing the system. If however you need a reliable water supply that will pump water up to a height of around 490 feet over long distances, investing in a Papa Pump is a smart business solution for your water delivery system. The Papa Pump has NO moving mechanical parts, so there's nothing that will break. The patented internal EPDM valves are cheap and easy to replace in situ when necessary.
Saving with the Papa Pump...
Saving on Water Bills
UK FARMER was spending $28,750 per year on public water for his 500 head of cattle. He had a stream available but there was no power at the site to move the water to the farm. So he installed a Papa Pump system himself, which he found fairly easy and now he just uses public water for the farmhouse.
Saving time with the Papa Pump
UK FARMER used a diesel pump to pump water from his spring up to the farm. The diesel cost only $320 per year but he had to walk down and start and stop the pump twice a day. After installing a Papa Pump, he saved on fuel costs but also saved a couple of hours a day on his valuable time.
Big Savings for Business
A remote WASTE WATER TREATMENT WORKS had to employ someone to visit every week to clean the scum off the humus tanks. They installed 2 Papa Pumps which pumped water (without the need of power or manual operation) to the top of the tank to continually spray the surface and so disperse the scum.
Improving Lives with the Papa Pump
