Windmills have been part of the Australian landscape for over 150 years.

Pumping water using wind is the ultimate in renewable energy and is available all year round, working day or night.

Even though the principles of windmills have remained the same over the years, the materials that are used are now have changed using non-corrosive materials.

There are no more rusting columns or corroding pumps that made for expensive upkeep.

Windmill Engineering Co manufacture stainless steel syphon pumps.

"These pump out of dams, creeks, rivers, springs and shallow wells," a company spokesman said.

"They are available in sizes from one and three-quarter inch to four and a half inch.

"Also we have a delrin gland that fits all applications, requiring no bucket changing, just a simple tightening to control.

"These glands will pump uphill and downhill or across the flat - wherever you require water.

"We have pro-pol pipe in two and three inch sizes to suit most applications with stainless steel ended pro-pol coated steel pump rods, all in convenient three metre lengths for down bores.

"All these are either stainless steel, brass or plastic, giving a rust free environment for your pump."

"Windmills have an expected lifespan of at least 50 years and require very little maintenance."
