A little bit about how Piston Pumps came to be.

We started our involvement with piston pumps whilst dairy farming on the NSW mid-north coast many years ago - we were completely reliant on pumps for water at the dairy. We then didn't use them for a number of years.

Piston Pumps started accidentally - a young farmer we knew had obtained a large pump and wanted to know about its installation. The capability of the pump far exceeded the capacity of his water supply, so we found him another more suitable option, took the 6" x 6" off his hands, rebuilt it, and sold it. That first one was subsequently replaced by another which was in turn restored and resold.

We had the website created to list a few pumps which we had gathered together and it has all grown from there. Little did we realise at the time that it would bring us to where we are now, nor that it would take us up, down, and around the eastern states of mainland Australia, nor that we would make multiple shipments to other Australian states.

Our aim is not only to make sure that such an integral part of our rural history is maintained for posterity but also that these wonderful pieces of engineering contribute as much to the future of Australian agriculture as they have in the past.

You enable us to do this through your continued use and interest in these grand dames - and for that, we sincerely thank you.
