General Information about the Rope Pumps
The rope and bucket pump has a unique design. A rope interspersed with plastic balls approximately every one meter, is connected to a ceramic guide box at the bottom of the well.
Through a rotary motion on the surface, they are moved up and down, and the bucket in the box is filled with water, and brought to the surface.
This system is mainly used in dug wells, and can be maintained with commonly available tools. They are mainly used in developing regions such as Africa, India, South America and Asia.
