Glockemann water pumps
The Glockemann hydraulic ram water pumps are water powered pressure pumps that deliver stream water up to a storage tank. Powered only by the flowing water, they are robust and hard-wearing, and is ideal for rural and remote locations where a reliable water supply is needed.
Our customers use the pumps to keep their tanks full, for animal watering, drip irrigation, fish farming, household and garden water supply, firefighting, and more. Watch our video for a detailed overview.
