Agriculture Irrigation Services

Since 1958, Prime Irrigation has been carrying out irrigation projects in Suffolk and Norfolk. Working with farms and landowners across the region, Prime Irrigation provide high quality, efficient systems, offering longevity, minimal running costs and maximum customer satisfaction. 

We specialise in the installation of underground mains, the manufacture and installation of floating pumps and the design and installation of pumping stations. From concept to commissioning, Prime Irrigation offer the highest quality, efficient systems. 

Our team can also support you throughout the year with maintenance and repair work to keep your irrigation system in tip-top condition, as well as season startup and decommission of your system.

Reservoirs & floating pumps 

Building a reservoir to increase your water supply can be an intimidating project to undertake. Prime Irrigation’s team can provide all aspects of design, construction and maintenance of reservoir related pumping equipment. Through our wider network of consultants, we can support you through the complete irrigation system construction process.​ 

In our specialist fabrication workshop, we’re able to design, fabricate and assemble floating pumps designed specifically for your application. Our floating pump design has been refined over the last 50 years, incorporating features such as large surface area primary screening, secondary screening, pump height adjustment, galvanised steelwork and long-life galvanised mesh screening material.


Borehole drilling and pumping can provide you with an uninterrupted supply of water to your property and/or land. Prime Irrigation offer a full service from bore hole drilling to the installation of bore pumping equipment for both domestic and commercial use.

We can also supply all the necessary equipment to carry out your own installation, including specified pumps. 

Pump or water testing/sampling can be carried out to allow our designers to account for the water volume and pumping capacity you want to achieve on an hourly basis.

Pumping stations

Prime Irrigation specialises in the design, fabrication and construction of complete pumping stations. Whether your intended use is water abstraction, transfer or boosting, Prime Irrigation’s highly experienced design team can devise a system for your specific requirements. Our team keep up to date with the latest innovations in irrigation technology to ensure optimal performance of your irrigation system. 

Sizing and controlling of pumps is an important factor when selecting suitable pump(s) for a specific irrigation project. Prime Irrigation offers systems incorporating variable speed control of ALL booster pumps, therefore, maximising efficiency, minimising operating costs as well as ensuring pump and motor longevity. We are also able to recommend and install pump control systems best suited to your irrigation needs. This includes systems designed to communicate remotely with the controller, enabling you to monitor your system anytime, anywhere.

Underground mains

Prime Irrigation will design an irrigation underground mains system to meet your individual requirements or supply all the materials required for your own installation.   ​ 

Installation of mains includes the excavation of trenches ensuring top soil is separated from subsoil. Installation of the pipe is then carried out incorporating bends, tees and valves as required.

Hydrants are fabricated to suit specific site conditions, these are installed before the backfilling process is carried out keeping topsoil at the surface to minimise disturbance of the growing media.​
