The ePumpNZ is the complete solar pumping solution, providing reliable and cost-effective pumping anywhere you need it.

THE EPUMP STORY

Back in 2014, a mate asked us if we could build him a solar water pump as a bit of a side project. We like new ideas (and challenges) so we got to work. We used our existing knowledge of pumping, and learnt a hell of a lot about solar in a short space of time! Once it was installed and working, we started to think about who else could use something like this. Turns out there are plenty of people needing a reliable, self-sufficient and economical pumping solution.

Since then we have continued to develop and improve the ePumpNZ to the point it is today – reliably pumping water, even in harsh environments. We’re really proud of it, our customers love it, and we think you will too.

WHAT ARE THE RUNNING COSTS VERSUS A TRADITIONAL PUMP?

We aren’t going to lie. The initial costs of an ePumpNZ will likely be more than a traditional pump. But the running costs over time are much cheaper – and this is where the savings can rack up.
– No fuel costs
– No labour costs (e.g. to transport fuel)
– Minimal maintenance costs

HOW MUCH WATER DO I NEED TO BE PUMPING EACH DAY?

It’s not always easy to know exactly what water you need. Luckily there are really useful tables like the one below that can help you out.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF STOCK WATER RETICULATION?

In 2017, a great report was published looking at the benefits of installing stock water reticulation systems on hill country farms throughout New Zealand. Benefits included:

  • increased in stock units per hectare
  • increased animal productivity
  • better grazing management
  • greater pasture production
  • better environmental outcomes\
  • greater ability to implement farm environment plans
  • increased drought resistance.

But you don’t have to take our word for it. There is a report (and a handy video) if you are interested:

CASE STUDIES

TE APITI STATION – HAWKES BAY

It gets a once over (service) once a year – and that’s it. I haven’t had to spend any other time or money on it.” – Richard Scott

KERERU – HAWKES BAY

It’s massively cost efficient. It was going to cost us $100k in powerlines – so after installing the ePumpNZ we are way ahead.” – Stu Harper
