Whether it be watering, irrigation, water supply to private houses, transfer and lifting of fresh and waste water or swimming pools, the pumps market is, and will remain, important to us.

Successive heatwaves and floods over recent years have contributed to increasing needs, although they do remain subservient to the vagaries of the weather.
