Austin Lake Pumps is proud to be the only lake pump company in all of Texas which is a Franklin Pump Key Dealer.

Franklin Electric is the undisputed leader and the largest manufacturer of reliable submersible motors for pumps over the entire world.

Franklin motors power not only their own pumps, but >84% of all various manufacturers submersible pumps.

However, be aware that most of our competitors use a brand of pumps with chinese motors. Most recently

we were called out to by a lake austin lake front property owner who reached his limit of frustration with our competitor and

we replaced one of these chinese motor pumps which failed at only 2 years old with our quality Franklin product.

Note: Buying Communist Chinese pumps from ALL our competitors only supports the enemy of Democracy,

and the supplier of fentanyl to the drug cartels.

Above is a very revealing video under 3 minutes which compares our 

super reliable "top of the line" high tech resin poly pipe versus common PVC pipe.

Our poly pipe is a much thicker wall than the poly pipe of yesteryear, and incorporates a new resin chemistry that is superior to past products

Unfortunately common white PVC pipe is the only pipe our competitors offer & install - - PVC pipe turns to "glass" at 32F.

c

c

Our premium super poly pipe is guaranteed for Lifetime against Freeze cracks, Hail Damage,

or UV Sunlight cracks

A vast number of existing white PVC pipe strings down hillsides to the lake installed by ALL our competitors have been and are being replaced with our superior poly pipe

.

.

More facts about our Super Poly Pipe here:

.

.

How many thousand feet would you prefer ?   With our custom poly pipe spooling trailer we are the only lake pump company in Texas who can

spool off up to 500 feet continuous length in as little as than 15 minutes time, without couplings every 20 feet like PVC pipe that act as future "weak failure points"

Our trailer can hold up to 1000 feet of 1.5" diameter (2 coils) at once. While all our competitors are installing failure prone 1.25" PVC pipe,

we give our customers the extra bonus of the larger 1.5" super poly pipe at no extra added cost ! (less flow loss, better pressure up top)


 

The Zebra mussel, Dreissena polymorpha, has now been found in Lake Travis, Lake Austin, Lady Bird Lake and many others.

C

This invasive species reproduces and populates rapidly, it especially prefers suction or flowing water sources,  and will clog up unprotected intake pipes and pump screens in as little as one year

All types of pumps are affected.

Austin Lake Pumps is the first and the only lake pump company offering as an option proven protection against this threat

Beware of questionable individuals offering copper screening which is not effective because the microscopic zebra veliger larvae get sucked right through any screening,

they attach to pumps and pump shrouds in between screen wires and BELOW-INSIDE any screening to grow to adults, completely destroying any screening attempts.

Our latest pump shroud (flow sleeve) design is highly effective against zebra mussel attachment on the most important portion that provides water flow intake.

We don't provide images of the new shroud design on our website to preserve our trade secret innovations.

We are often called out to sites where our competitors previously installed extremely thinly slotted water well PVC pipe with paper thin slots that rapidly clog up with algae & water weeds and

the PVC pipe itself is then easily broken off due to the weakness the fine slots impair on the structural integrity of the pipe.

Above: The 2nd largest installation of our career on Lake Travis at Volente, the property is in the middle with all the trees, the owner's floating boathouse is the one in the middle.

We installed 1000 feet of #4 copper pump cable plus 1.5 inch freeze crack proof LIFETIME GUARANTEE poly pipe down the South property boundary and down through the steep ravine to the lake,

then the submersible pump was installed in our signature custom shroud and placed 300 feet farther out into the lake, all at depth below 20 year historical drought levels.

The homesite is at 158 foot of elevation head, at then current lake levels.

The poly pipe terminates in a 2000 gallon poly storage tank up near the house where a booster pump takes over.

Our competitors passed on this job as the owner confided in us they did not have the experience or the expertise to get the job done

Our preferred, recommended pump brands are Grundfos, Franklin, Stairs

We have found that the Grundfos and Franklin pumps last longer and are more reliable than other pumps

   

We are often called out to service and repair other brands, which when indicated, we replace with our preferred brand above

Austin Lake Pumps is owned by Robert Neighbors, shown at the top of the page with his son.  Robert and his associates perform installation, service and repair

of submersible pumps in or near rivers, ponds & lakes for irrigation, home water, and other uses in the central Texas area.    We do not provide water filtration or sterilization.

 

We are innovators in the lake pump industry:

1st and currently the only company to successfully perform underwater repairs on broken pipes with our new technology super strength black comp couplings (no glue or solvent needed). This is a serious savings over having to bring the entire pipe string and pump out of the lake just to perform a pipe repair -  which is what other pump companies still do.

1st and currently the only company to offer advanced, high capacity filtration using filters with washable, reuseable filter elements.

>

1st and currently the only company to offer aluminum / stainless super size screens with our custom order screen hole sizes for keeping weeds and debri out of the internal filters of submersible pumps (drastically reduce clogging of submersible pumps). Due to the new zebra mussel threat we are offering even more comprehensive screening for this invasive species.

1st and currently the only company to offer extra high strength couplings on the underwater pump pipe string where PVC is present, in addition to the new 250 psi resin flexible black poly piping.  We can source the absolute highest pressure test flexible poly piping in the industry (new, high tech resins) for our demanding customers. The normal PVC couplings other companies use are a common point of failure in most lake pump systems. Our poly piping is much more resistant to sunlight and freezing conditions that turn PVC pipe to a glass like state.

1st and currently the only company to provide all the electrical, pump, filters and tanks through a highly trained staff who take full responsibility.

Our competitors often use several different contractors. Will all of them be available when needed to coordinate with other services ? What if there is a problem ? Will one of the many services pass the blame to others and no one wants to take responsibility  ?

We also offer optional features on our premium systems such as electronic pump protection, optional communication from far distant irrigation controllers to dock mounted pumps without any new wiring and trenches through the yard,
Optional hand held cellphone pump system control features from anywhere there is wi-fi  - - even thousands of miles away , pump activation through wireless cellular signal,  electronic freeze protection of any "out of water" piping and much more.
