During emergency situations, the pump will use the water stored underground, rather than the usual water supplies. They're designed to operate in wells, sumps or offshore.

The Problem

Needing to comply with building fire safety regulation, a plumbing contractor requested for a fire hydrant system.

Instead of a standard diesel fire hydrant booster pumpset, he was after a system that can tap into a water supply below ground, as well as being easy to install.

Our Solution

A deep well fire hydrant system is ideal in this type of application.

During emergency situations, the pump will use the water stored underground, rather than the usual water supplies.

Also known as vertical turbine fire pumps, they eliminate the need for priming and thus saving precious time for the firefighters.

We assembled a Kwikflo deep well diesel fire hydrant system, which include a Caprari P7CU/4/24/7A column pump and a Titan diesel 4102 motor. It is built to AS2941-2013 standard.

The shaft is 5 metres long, capability of reaching the deep end of the water storage.
