Brief History

Think Water Timaru, formerly known as Washington Pumps, was established in 1964 by Bill Washington, the founder director of Washington Drilling and Pumps Ltd. Washington Pumps Ltd was incorporated as a company in 1978, due to the increasing demand for the supply of pumps and pumping equipment. In April 2000 Grant Colliar and Robert Washington purchased the company, and in 2012 they joined the Think Water group.

Think Water Timaru supplies all leading brands of pumps including the Grundfos range. As our  clients cover domestic, commercial and agricultural sectors, we have an extensive knowledge of all types of pumping systems. We stock a wide range of pipe fittings, home irrigation, water filtration, pool chemicals and pumps.

Our company policy is that we will only sell a pump if it is right for the job, and will be installed in such a way to optimize performance. It has always been the practice of Think Water Timaru to deal in quality products.

Previous Projects

Temuka Sale Yards

Think Water Timaru were engaged to install a yard wash system for the Temuka Sale Yards. The scope of work included the installation of all pipework, supply tanks, and the Grundfos Variable Speed Drive yard wash pump. The reason for the upgrade was to reduce the time it was taking to clean the pens after a sale and to help reduce water wastage.

Mt Hutt Installation

The Timaru team completed a pump installation at Mt Hutt. The installation was interesting, as the pump was installed at approximately 1800 meters above sea level. Although the well was only 120 meters deep and the pump was installed at a depth of 105 meters, it means that the water level in the well is 30 meters higher than the ski hut complex. The water is used for the manufacture of snow during ski season.
