Manual Drilled Wells

The WaSAP Manual well is drilled to provide water for households, irrigation and other purposes. The well-drilled well has an outlet pressure that allows pumping up to 60 meters height, or 2 km horizontally. The flow varies between 0.2 and 1 litre per pulse depending on the pump model.

Improved Hand Dugwell

Open wells can be improved to avoid using buckets that carry dirt and dust into the well while drawing water from the well, thus acting as a source of contamination. To improve the well, we dig a hole of approximately 1.50 meters deep next to the well, down the jacket of the well. And passes a PVC pipe (1½ʺ – 2” sanitary) pipe through the aperture. This will serve as casting for the pump.

Rain Harvesting Tanks

Where manual drilling and digging are not possible, a surface tank may be used. Its construction is simple and inexpensive as it does require much material or wood.

Solar Water Pumps

We use a solar water pump system to provide water for households and institutions (schools, health facilities etc.). The solar systems we provide consist of a solar panel array that powers an electric motor, which in turn powers a bore or surface pump. The pump will send water to an elevated that is used to serve the facility.

Water Filters

WaSAP promotes water filters for households. The water filters serve as containers and addition to filtering water, which is essential to keep harmful bacteria and parasites from drinking water.

Water Quality Testing

We use simple but effective water quality kits to understand and measure water quality as it directly impacts human consumption and health.
