How to Install The Papa Water Powered Pump
Having purchased your Papa water powered pump, it is important that the groundwork is carefully prepared - you can do this yourself.
However, you might need help with the groundworks if you do not have equipment or time.
If you decide to install yourself or have a team in to do it; make sure you follow our Golden Rules on site preparation to make the installtion smoother, safer and more effective.

Installation Golden Rule Checklist
- Check the site for any public utilities such as land drains, electricity or telephone cables
- The terrain may be important if there is much groundwork to be carried out. Digging rock can be difficult!
- Check your land boundaries before undertaking long-distance groundwork. Neighbours can be very sensitive over such issues but remember, everyone needs water, including neighbours. Why not get them involved!
- Consider whether some form of filter or screening is required. Generally speaking, all but spring water supplies tend to carry unwanted debris at some time or another and a catchment tank beside a stream or river is a straightforward but necessary aspect.
In most cases Papa recommends for each customer to have a professional drainage/ ground works company manage the installation. Please note : whoever does the installation, always check the area for buried local electricity/ water mains and presence of other utilities.
