Solar Pumps for Smart Water Wells

Pumpmakers focuses on solar pump systems for the supply of rural and urban areas with access to Water, Internet, Power & Light. Furthermore we offer water exploration, water well construction, WASH solutions, agricultural purposes and the implementation of entire projects for governments, NGOs and CSR activities.
Imagine what it would be like if remote regions were to be able to connect to the world via WiFi Internet, have access to a charging station for lights, radios, mobile phones and tablets, and WATER. But that’s not all. At the same time, ground water data can be logged and transmitted together with weather data and live pictures of the region.

The solar water pump "PM Life Station" makes this – and more – possible!

Water Boosts Life & Jobs

Pumpmakers develops solar water pumps and contributes to reducing water shortages and poverty worldwide. We provide people with their own access to safe, clean drinking water – even in the remotest corners of the world – a worldwide network of fellow Pumpmakers, AND we assist and support all those wanting to use our solar pump systems for their business and NGOs.
