Hydro Innovations was formed in 2008 to be the Gorman-Rupp pump distributor for Australia. We have since grown our “stable” of pump manufacturers to include Venturi and RamParts of USA, EDUR of Germany, Ragazzini of Italy and JS Proputec of Denmark. We have been very particular in selecting manufacturers to represent, wanting only the best in each class to offer to our customers.
The Hydro Innovations team is small, but dedicated to delivering excellent products and services to our customers. Our main market areas are municipal and industrial wastewater pumps, food process, utilities pumps and paper manufacturing.
We promote self priming pump systems because they are much safer for operators and more cost effective for asset owners. We believe the use of quality self priming pumps can reduce civil costs, reduce maintenance costs and greatly improve safety..
Our capabilities have grown over time and now include CAD, 3D modelling, and finite element analysis. We have developed our own pump bases which have been specifically designed for use with self priming pumps, and with input from EDUR, are developing pumping systems for DAF plants.
“Hydro Innovations helped us solve some safety issues connected with the operation of the submersible wastewater pumps we had. We now have Gorman-Rupp self priming wastewater pumps in that application and our safety issues have been substantially reduced. We have no hesitation in endorsing Hydro Innovations.”
Chris Schumacher, Director of Works & Engineering Oberon Council
“It’s great to see that there are still suppliers out there who will stand behind their products and let you trial them before buying. If Hydro Innovations hadn’t let me trial the pump I doubt I would have bought it upfront because I have been burnt so many times before. After all my negative experiences, the Gorman-Rupp T2A3-B self priming wastewater pump is far more than I hoped for.”
Mat Collier, Principal Partner and Manager of Midwest Piggery
“Another big plus with the Gorman-Rupp pump is that if you do get a malfunction occurring in the motor you can just replace the motor. This isn’t possible with a submersible pump. If there is a motor problem you have to change the entire pump. As an engineer I grew up on submersible pumps but having now been exposed to an above ground centrifugal pump I’d say they have a lot to offer and should be seriously considered as a pump option in a wastewater treatment plant.”
Adrian Harper, Senior Engineer Wastewater Treatment Group, Moe Wastewater Treatment Plant, Gippsland Water
“Bundaberg Regional Council are using Gorman-Rupp ultra VS3A60-B wastewater pumps in our vacuum sewer stations.

They are a very professional company to deal with, they know their stuff and are willing to back their product. Based on our experience we have no hesitation selecting or recommending Gorman-Rupp pumps.”
Kevin Harris, Bundaberg Regional Council Technician
“Inghams Enterprises Pty Ltd have used Gorman-Rupp pumps for over 20 years. Gorman-Rupp submersible pumps have provided reliable, dependable wastewater pumping service for our waste treatment processing plants in this time. Based on this experience we had no hesitation selecting Gorman-Rupp pumps for a new trade waste treatment plant at one of our NSW plants.”
David Jessup – Group Executive General Manager, Inghams Enterprises Pty Ltd.
