How it works

Water Pump hire near you

In the construction industry, water pumps and dewatering systems are crucial during rainy seasons, as groundwater and rain can flood the entire site causing delays, downtime and more. To help keep your project to schedule and dry, iSeekplant has a range of water pump hire and dewatering system suppliers across the country in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Darwin, Perth, Adelaide and everywhere else in between.

What are Water Pumps?

There are many different types of water pumps available for hire, so it is important to choose the right option for your project. Water pumps help reduce downtime caused by heavy rainfall, as well as reduce operational costs and keep productivity high. The two main types of water pumps include positive displacement pumps and centrifugal pumps. Both have the same purpose of continuously moving water from one point and disposing it elsewhere. Centrifugal water pumps have a rotating impeller which moves water into the pump, pressurising the discharge flow, while positive displacement water pumps have a fixed amount of flow and a flexible diaphragm. These are an efficient choice as they automatically remove air from the lines. When you’re browsing water pump hire in your local area, you’ll need to keep a few things in mind. Knowing the flow rate is important as it will indicate the approximate horsepower that you will need. Water pumps can also come equipped with differing motors, including manual, hydraulic, gas, diesel or power.

Dewatering System suppliers

Just as there are many different dewatering systems, there are also many dewatering system suppliers. The most common and simplest dewatering system is sump pumping, which is when an excavator installs sumps and groundwater is then collected inside the sumps before being pumped away from the site. While this is generally a cost-effective method, dealing with ground loss, ground instability and excessive seepage can be both time-consuming and expensive. For this reason, pre-drainage dewatering systems are often used, and there are a number of installations that already have filtration devices installed, allowing you to avoid any water or silt problems.

Jetting is another option, which is when a number of well points are installed and then connected to a suction pumping system. Borehole pumps are typically used for deep well applications, while suction pumps are ideal for traditional well points, and eductor pumps are good for low flow and low permeability applications. An effective dewatering system often relies on properly laid and productive pipework, allowing the pumps to be checked, maintained and replaced.
