Frequently Asked Questions

Pumping System – Dredging Applications

Q. What normally happens to the silt?
A. Unlike other dredging/silt removal methods, our silt pumping system only requires a small amount of water to pump the silt, therefore in most circumstances we can pump silt directly onto land, or into wooded areas, which means there is no need for dumper trucks to take the silt away, neither is there a need to prebuild bunded areas to hold the silt to drain the water off.

The video below shows you an example of this.

Q. Will your system pump silt?
A. Yes our pumping system is ideal for desilting lakes, pond, rivers, canals, reservoirs or settlement lagoons

Q. Do you need a big area to get your equipment in?
No. Our silt pumping system is compact and can be brought into normally inaccessible areas. If the area to be cleared is extremely small, we can still use our silt pumping system as long as the equipment is no further than 50 meters from the working area.

Q. Can you desilt a lake with Fish in?
A. Yes!

Q. I have a pond with a liner, can you desilt it?
