About Us

The Water Curtain Bushfire Sprinkler Protection system was developed by Anthony Walsh, a licensed plumber with over 30 years of industry experience and a senior firefighter with Fire and Rescue NSW, Ulladulla.

The system was conceived when a friend requested Anthony’s help to protect his home from the imminent threat of the Currowan bushfire in 2019.

With the aim of limiting potential failure points, Anthony developed a roof-mounted sprinkler system that had a deliberate minimal reliance on technology – delivering a ‘curtain of water’ over property structures that could be maintained during the extreme conditions that occur during bushfire exposure.


If you have witnessed a bushfire first-hand you know you need to be prepared and have confidence in the defence system you have in place. A sprinkler system is an integral part of that defence system.

- Anthony Walsh, Sprinkler System Specialist

Anthony Walsh installing sprinkler system pump

He gave a detailed quote which I accepted. I was very pleased with the overall job however, I felt that additional protection was needed on the actual tank supplying the system. Anthony was happy to return and fit the additional sprinkles. The job was carried out with professionalism and the customers satisfaction as top of mind. I plan to get Anthony back again next year to install another system on some cottages we have on the property.

- Andy McLeod, Southern Highlands NSW

From the start of this process Anthony provided me with valuable advice. He fully explained his design for my house beforehand, and any queries were answered promptly and satisfactoraly. I am very pleased with Anthony's workmanship and the quality of the components used. Anthony also didn't hesitate to give me advice or visit on site whilst I learnt how to operate the system, which I now find to be very easy. His background has given me confidence that Anthony has a good understanding of what is needed for the best protection to combat ember attack.

- E May, Woodstock NSW

Anthony designed and built our bushfire sprinkler system. He was punctual, on budget, taking incredible steps to produce a system he was truly happy with. We would not hesitate to recommend Anthony as he displays all the traits you would expect from a professional.
