Impact Pump installed in 24m deep well in a community compound in Rabour, Kenya

Impact Pump water pump installed in a customer's well

Our Engineers have installed our first deeper-well Impact Pump at George Arombe’s family compound, Rabour, Kisumu province, Kenya. The pump is lifting water from a depth of 24m to serve a community of around 60 people.

Before the Impact Pump

Before installing an Impact Pump system, George was only able to lift a maximum of 1,200 litres of water per day. This is because he was lifting water manually using a winch and he simply could not lift enough water for everyone who needed it.

About the Impact Pump

The Impact Pump is a submersible range extender for a surface water pump. This means that where farmers were previously limited by a surface water suction depth (7m) they can now lift water from much deeper. George Arombe’s Impact Pump is powered by a modified Futurepump SF2 solar pump.

If you would like to be able to reliably lift water from up to 25m deep, please get in contact with us today.
