The team at ECD Ltd is very experienced in setting up complete pumping systems on lifestyle blocks according to your particular requirements. The systems will usually include a submersible pump, pressure pump system, holding tank (concrete or plastic) and a coloursteel pump shed. Only brands of pumps with proven reliability are used. Crane trucks are available to lift submersible pumps in or out of wells. A generator is available to provide power on site if the electrical connection has not been completed.
