Water Sources

Poldaw Windpumps can pump from:

  • Open (dug) wells
  • Rivers
  • Boreholes (tubewells)
  • Lakes
  • Springs
  • Marshes (drainage)
  • Dams
  • Sea (salt production)

Pumping systems

Poldaw Windpumps not only lift water to a surface tank adjacent to the source but also, with appropriate plumbing, can pump water great distances and to substantial heights. Poldaw Windpumps are used to pump water to:

  • Tanks on raised stands or nearby hills.
  • Remote tanks or reservoirs (distances of over 1 km and heights of 50 m).
  • Pressurised drip irrigation systems.
  • Water distribution systems (usually with header tank).
