Hand Pump - Sudan

Hand Pump - Sudan

This video shows the hand pump and machine installed at Sunny Nile VTC on the outskirts of Khartoum. The idea is to run the pump as long as it takes to cause some failure and then to compare this to how the India Mark II pump tends to fail. Note the banging of the handle each stroke - this is close to the way the hand pumps are actually used although the rate of our machine is lower.

In the second half of the clip the blue holding tank is visible. From this tank the water is pumped to a high storage tank.
