About our company
Our company was founded in 2000 from a vision to improve and provide a better quality and more efficient cold water boosting systems and become a leader in the market with the innovation of the original Aquabox cold water boosting System.
In early 2000, Tadhg Barry of Southern Pumps noticed a new requirement in the domestic and commercial water Booster Pump market for a solution to provide good water pressure throughout a plumbing system,
Tadhg noticed that there were some crude poorly assembled open storage tanks with low-cost plastic submersible pumps being offered as a solution, this prompted Tadhg to come up with a high-quality solution.
In early 2001 we launched our very first Aquabox, manufactured with an enclosed Rota Moulded Potable Water Storage Tank, a 5 Inch Submersible Booster Pump and an Automatic Controller.
This new and innovative solution very quickly gained support from local contractors and merchants alike. We very quickly gained penetration in the market for this new product which provided a quick and easy install for the plumbing contractor. The volumes for this product grew very rapidly from then on.
Domestic and commercial package booster systems complete with submersible booster pump and storage tank suitable for potable water We have a range of tank and pumps sizes to cater for all needs
Aquabox New Era (Xylem Inside)

step in the evolution of the Aquabox with opportunity to use the Lowara WRAS
