What is the difference between “rehabilitation” and “repair” or “service maintenance” of hand pumps

  1. What is the WASH sector common understanding of a hand or foot-pump well “rehabilitation” vs a well “repair” or “service maintenance”. To me, a rehab seems to imply the restoration to functionality of a well that has stopped working, perhaps for a long time. But I’m looking at a situation where simply restoring a still-functioning pump (Vergnet or India Mark IV) to “optimal” water flow is labelled a “rehab”. How common/uncommon or rigorous/loose of a definition for “rehab” would this be in the WASH world?

  2. I’m trying to understand, when it comes to repairing existing wells in Africa vs drilling new ones, what types of things are considered rehabilitations vs. routine maintenance. What would be considered pump rehabilitations (worth billing foreign donors $1,500 USD for) or routine maintenance (coverable by $8 USD monthly contributions by the African village)?
