Impact Pump provides water for building work at Kanyamedha school

When we first installed the Impact Pump at Kanyamedha school in Kisumu, Kenya, it was going to be providing water for cooking, cleaning, washing and irrigation. However, due to the global pandemic, the school has been shut for several months this year.

Without the regular water needs of the staff and students at the school, we were unsure if the Impact Pump installation would be used as planned. So it was great to receive an update from the school letting us know that the Impact Pump certainly does not lie dormant.

In fact, it has been providing a very important source of water for construction work at the school while it is closed. Water is pumped for construction material mixing and the cleaning down of tools.

Without the Impact Pump installation accessing water for this work would have required additional time consuming manual labour or the added cost of a submersible pump. There could have also been the risk of contaminants from the work entering the well, something which is not a concern with the Impact Pumps capped well design.
