Hawke’s Bay’s climate is the envy of many and is one of the warmest, driest regions in New Zealand. Long sunshine hours combined with excellent soil and significant water resources make it one of the best growing regions in the country.
A significant portion of New Zealand’s total production of fruit, vegetables and grapes are grown on the fertile Heretaunga Plains or near Hastings, while sheep, beef and dairy farms thrive across the central Hawke’s Bay and surrounding hill country.
WaterForce helps horticulture, agriculture and viticulture clients throughout this region and beyond, including Taupo and Dannevirke.
Local orchardists rely on us to design and install irrigation and frost protection systems. We supply Rondo and other leading micro-spray sprinkler systems to a number of the growers in Hawkes Bay.
Tomato, beetroot, onion and other vegetable growers require flexibility to irrigate individual paddocks and rotate crops. We custom-design irrigation systems to suit your land, and Ocmis hard hose irrigators are often a popular choice.
Sheep, beef and dairy farmers can source Valley Pivot & Linear irrigators through our branch, along with WaterForce Folding Booms, K-Line Irrigation, Krohne flow meters, WaterCheck compliance telemetry, stock water systems, and SCADAfarm control and monitoring solutions.
With the Ruataniwha Water Storage Scheme inching ever closer, farmers and orchardists will soon be able to access the water they need to survive summer droughts. WaterForce are ideally placed to help you make best use of this precious resource.
Hawke’s Bay is also one of New Zealand’s leading wine producing areas and is famous for its full bodied red wines. Millions of dollars are invested in grapes so it makes sense to install the best possible water frost protection system to look after them. We also supply leading drip-line irrigation and filtration systems and can service all your pumps and equipment to ensure your system runs effectively.
We have a large team of mobile service technicians who will be on your doorstep if you suffer any pipe leaks, mechanical or electrical breakdowns. They’re available 24/7 and carry out regular maintenance on all WaterForce products. We also conduct season shut downs or start ups on your behalf and are always happy to give advice on any issues you may experience.
We’re proud to have one of WaterForce’s largest trade stores right here in Hawke’s Bay. You’ll find us half way between Napier and Hastings, on the Napier end of Pakowhai Road.
A wide range of customers pop in to buy irrigation equipment or replacement parts. Local landscapers know we stock the best range of products for home garden irrigation including Hunter pop-up sprinklers, PVC pipes and fittings, and various Polyethylene (PE) pipes varying in size from 8mm upwards.
Lifestyle block owners can also buy everything they need to pump water, irrigate their land or improve their drinking water through filtration or treatment methods. We also have a comprehensive range of Valley parts for sale, and can organise overnight delivery of any equipment should it not be in stock.
WaterForce Hawke’s Bay also designs and supplies irrigation systems for local parks, gardens, sports fields and golf courses. If you have a commercial property or business that requires wastewater pumping, reticulation or irrigation, come in and have chat about how we can help.
