Submersible pumps are most often used in artesian wells. When installed properly, they can also be used in reservoirs, lakes, rivers and ponds. Since they are installed in the water and do not require priming or suction, they are able to deliver a high volume of water at the ideal operating pressure required for sprinkler systems.

They can be installed with filtration and automated safety systems to ensure they are not damaged. They can be controlled by the sprinkler systems computer or operate based on system pressure and demand. However, when installed exclusively for use on a sprinkler system, the design of the sprinkler system must match the output of the pump or premature wear and failure of the pump will occur.

You can rest assured that our technicians and engineers are able to design, install, service or repair your pump so that it operates properly and reliably.

Jet and Centrifugal

Jet and centrifugal pumps are used to either supply water or boost the pressure of an existing water source. These pumps are not installed in the water so attention to its placement is critical to limit the height it has to lift the water.

Generally, jet and centrifugal pumps are less expensive than submersible pumps. The advantages of one over the other can be explained during a visit to the site.


Booster pumps are used to boost water pressure. They can be installed to overcome pressure losses due to elevation, friction, and can sometimes be used to make a poorly designed irrigation system operational.

Pump Stations

Generally all our pump station installations use a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) so that we are able to reduce energy costs, system wear and noise levels. Each system is custom ordered to the site requirements. Grundfos CR vertical, multi-stage, centrifugal pumps maximize performance, economy and reliability by giving you:

Johnson Irrigation - Forage et Perçage

Notre équipement nous permet de passer sous presque toutes les surfaces, sans endommager la surface ou de faire de l'excavation. La plupart des entrepreneurs vous diront qu'ils ne peuvent pas le faire ou qu’ils ont besoin de couper votre allée ou trottoir. La majorité du travail effectuer avec notre équipement de forage est le forage sous les allées et les parcs de stationnement.


Johnson Irrigation - Pipe pulling

First the grass would have to be removed, then digging and installing the pipe or wire followed by filling in the trench. Our equipment enables us to install pipe, cable, conduit or wire up to 2' deep without damaging your property. The speed at which we are able to install pipe and wire can save not only your property, but money as well. Depending on the condition of your lawn, these lines may be undetectable by the end of the day.


Johnson Irrigation - Drainage

Horizontal drainage, for the most part, only occurs once the soil is saturated and begins to flow on the surface towards the lowest point. Once the ground becomes saturated and the terrain is such that the water cannot naturally flow away, the area will begin to flood. With the installation of underground drainage we can give the soil a saturation level that is now underground.


Johnson Irrigation - Défoncement

Lorsque plusieurs services publics sont en cours d'installation ou si vous avez besoin d'effectuer une inspection visuelle et de vous assurer du niveau, cet équipement est moins perturbant et beaucoup plus rapide qu’une rétrocaveuses. La possibilité de creuser et de déterrer une zone avec un minimum de dommages signifie que sa prend moins de temps pour creuser et moins de temps à nettoyer.


Johnson Irrigation - Trenching

When multiple utilities are being installed or you need to visually inspect and ensure level, this equipment is less disruptive and much quicker than backhoes. The ability to dig and excavate an area with minimal damage means that it takes less time to excavate and less time to clean up. Our trenching equipment enables us to dig a 6" wide trench up to 3 feet deep. Depending on soil conditions, we could trench about 25 feet per minute.


Johnson Irrigation - Boring and horizontal drilling

Most contractors will tell you it can't be done or that they need to cut your driveway or walkway and then patch it. Not only is this technique more aesthetically appealing but it causes minimal disruption to the base structure. If we don't have to disturb the base material, so we don't have to worry about compacting an excavated area. The majority of work we do with our boring equipment consists of drilling under driveways and parking lots.
