Few weeks past, MSABI attended a meeting on Rope Pump Standard. In that meeting different organizations attended like Sema Singida, MSABI, Desk and Chair Foundation, Shipo and IDYDC.
What was discussed is:
(a) All materials needed to make a rope pump should be in the same quality. This is basically for the purpose of ensuring pump sustainability.
(b) PVC pipes used should be bought at Falcon Industry Dar es Salaam. This is because they produce quality materials with reasonable price.
(c) Also some members from the organization have to go for a meeting with Falcon about having the same size of PVC pipes.
