Plastic Column and Rod

At Windmills Are Us we believe one of the best things to happen in windmill technology in the past 100 years has been the plastic column and rod system. It is a plastic based system that eliminates corrosion and maximises the life of pump seals. This means the life of your windmill pump is prolonged and ensures you have a trouble-free windmill pumping system for years to come.

Our plastic column and rod products at Windmills Are Us are competitively priced and, considering you won't ever have to pull up and replace your corroded galvanised bore pipes and rods, it will save you time and money in the long run.

Column sizes are available in 1.25", 1.5" and 2" with rod sizes in .5" and 5/8". They are available in 3m and 6m lengths. Contact us at Windmills Are Us for more information.
