Below are pictures from our first open well conversion to a rope pump at Namawala.
The pictures provide an overview of how we install a rope pump over an existing hand dug well. The rope pump provides the following benifits:
- a closed environment - no surface contamination from run-off, dirty rope/bucket, or foreign objects.
- ease of use - no more lifting heavy buckets
- safety - no more danger of children falling down the well
