Revision history [back]
As per your request regarding rope pumps see below ... these are links to the files in our TSU DropBox folder but available to everyone if you click these links. I have included other in this email as well for their interest.
Burkina Faso (French) https://www.dropbox.com/s/vrirvi67ajy83cl/Document%20technique%20de%20la%20rope%20pump_version%20finale.doc
Mozambique https://www.dropbox.com/s/kjgldd366fo2mud/Manufacturing%20Guidelines.pdf https://www.dropbox.com/s/a2zp2kqakwm02gr/ET%20Installation%20and%20Maint%20%20Manual.pdf
Note that the Mozambique version was developed from the detailed design from Madagascar. We decided not to do detailed designs for Mozambique, but just the manufacturing guidelines. The one thing that I line about the Burkina model is the complete cover which solves some of the problems we had with the Moz & Mad versions with dripping water. The Burkina model cover is also easier to make.
Also note that all of these are designed for Communal water points. The pump can be simplified for household situations and for irrigation purposes.
