Video coming soon. A demonstration of a diesel water pump set

Come back soon to view a short video demonstration of a diesel water pump set that was manufactured in our facility and destined for an island in the Pacific. One of the main features of this system is the easy hand crank starting, as shown in the video.

Diesel water pump for boreholes.

Diesel borehole pumps are customised for installation in an underground well in order to pump water for multiple uses. Many Shaw-Diesels water pump sets are put to good use, providing water for Pacific peoples.

We fabricate simple hand-start and air-cooled pumps for the purpose. All that’s required is to put in the oil and ensure regular servicing and maintenance. It means a lot to us to know that we’re doing our small bit to improve people’s lives by helping advance water quality, through the Pacific Water Association.
