If you are currently supplied by a private water supply (not a group scheme) and need to either repair an existing water supply that may have some deficiencies or install a brand new water supply to your home, you might be entitled to a 75% grant on any works carried out on your water system. This is a household grant available from your Local Authority.

Whether located in Carlow, Dublin, Laois, Kildare, Kilkenny, Meath Wexford, Wicklow, or Waterford, the Johnny Flood Water Pumps team is ready and able to help you navigate the water grants process quickly and efficiently.

What We Do:

From providing the necessary application form to generating a comprehensive estimate and specification sheet, to performing the required work and helping you receive payment on the grant. The Johnny Flood Water Pumps team have extensive experience when it comes to assisting people throughout Ireland’s South and East Coast carry out the work they need in order to maintain a properly functioning water system for their domestic household.

A water grant is a tremendous resource to allay some of the costs associated with this type of work.
