Many people throughout the developing world rely on a hand pump for their water supply. But, like any other mechanical device, hand pumps can wear out and break from high-volume daily use.

Tens of thousands of hand pumps in the developing world need simple repairs. WATERisLIFE offers a robust program in pump repair and replacement, and in addition, the program incorporates modifying hand-dug wells to install covers and hand pumps.

The causes and the frequency of malfunction are affected by many variables. Keeping hand pumps sustainable is a priority. WATERisLIFE teams install and repair submersible (including solar), India MK II and III, Afridev, Vergnet, bush, and Water4 Access pumps.
