About us

Perth suppliers of commercial & residential water pumps and systems.

Testimonial from Mine Site Manager:

“I manage the underground dewatering pump systems used in our underground mine. The previous supplier was charging me for hiring pumps even when they weren’t on-site because they were constantly breaking down. I was also being charged a ridiculous amount to get them repaired. On top of that, there was a slow turnaround in getting repaired pumps back to us. That is why we decided to change over to Foundation Pumps and their suite of products. These pumps are of higher quality, and they last longer. They are easier to clean out. The actual pump, impeller, and workings of the pump are easier to access.”

Foundation Pump Services was established in the early 1990s as the West Australian distributor of Red Jacket Pumps, which were imported from the USA by CASI at the time. After more than 20 years, many of those original Red Jacket Pumps are still performing well. Our current pumps were chosen to match the high standard that clients had come to expect from our products.

Our company has qualified staff with extensive knowledge in domestic, commercial and industrial pump sectors. Foundation’s experienced pump technician is onsite to answer all questions regarding our services, which include repairs and testing carried out at our warehouse, or in the field.

Foundation Pump Services is fully equipped to deal with all aspects of the pump industry and client requirements. We are set-up for extraction and installation of submersible pumps, repairs to all types of pumps, and a service vehicle with a winch for field jobs such as lifting borehole submersible pumps.

Foundation Pump Services is conveniently located in Balcatta.

Pumpmaster Australia is a Norma Group company that prides itself in its after sales service.

Pumpmaster Australia is dedicated to supporting its extensive Australian dealer network. From Perth to Cairns we will back our products one hundred percent.

Pumpmaster began as Combined Australian State Importing (CASI). CASI was established by Peter Buegge and John Lower in the early 1990’s as an importing arm for the USA built, Red Jacket pumps. With over 60 years experience between them and successfully establishing CASI as a major submersible pump company throughout Australia, John and Peter wanted to create a lasting brand under its own name. “Pumpmaster Australia” was born. This gave John and Peter more control over the type and quality of product that could be sold in Australia.

Successful partnerships with factories from different corners of the world including USA, Italy, Taiwan, China, and Japan has helped Pumpmaster Australia design product that is specifically suited to Australian climate and conditions.

Pumpmaster has grown significantly over the years and is now part of the Norma Group.
