Pictures from Namawala Training

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

A full update will follow when I get time.

And for all that hard work the owner gives you a special soup of cow hooves.
