Originally designed by R A Lister of Dursley, the Domestic Pump is a long established “positive displacement” water pumping machine. It was originally designed many years ago specifically to provide fresh water from wells or nearby streams for domestic use. Over the years, it has been used to boost (when placed in tandem) water that needs to be moved upwards over long distances for agriculture, golf courses, or ornamental gardens.

Many thousands have been sold world-wide off the back of its reputation for very long life and reliability. Indeed we are currently providing overhaul facilities for pumps up to 40 years old.
Models are available with electric drive or petrol engine drive, or even supplied without engine (Basic Unit). The body of the machine is constructed mainly from cast iron components and the plunger cups from neoprene or leather.
The Pump will suck water from wells as deep as 7 metres (25 ft) and deliver up to a vertical height of 75 metres (250ft) depending on the fitted drive.

A full range of spare parts can be supplied for the Domestic Water Pump. Maintenance is very simple, and the replacement of any wearing parts is at low cost.

Although the Lister Pump was originally designed for fresh domestic water applications, in recent years it has also been used extensively for other functions such as:

  • Large garden water features
  • Farm livestock drinking applications
  • Land irrigation
  • Golf course water management
  • Hotel roof top water reservoirs

All machines are manufactured in the UK from quality parts by experianced fitters.

  • Efficient
    Water is pumped on each forward and each return stroke of the plunger.
  • Smooth and quiet
    Every pump is cushioned by the air reservoir contained in the air chamber. Lubrication is automatic.
  • Strong
    The main body of the pump is cast iron. All moving parts are constructed from long life materials.

The maximum suction lift including pipe friction is 25ft (7.6m) at sea level. This figure is reduced by 1ft (0.3m) for every 100ft (305m) increase in altitude.

Delivery Pipe:

Minimum pipe bore is ¾" BSP, or 22mm. If the length exceeds 150ft (45m) it may advisable to increase the size. The pipe should be as straight as possible, use long sweep bends for changes in direction. The delivery outlet must be arranged for open discharge.

Automatic Electric Installation:

The water level can be maintained by the action of a float switch, which switches the pump motor on if the tank is emptied and off when the tank is full. See the diagrams below for an illustration of how this can be setup.
