At Impact Pumps, we want to solve the world’s water access problems for good.
So, using world-leading expertise and innovation, we have made it our mission to transform rural water access with market-leading service, affordability and profitability over time.
There are many global water access needs that Impact Pumps addresses.
These include, but are not limited to…
The availability of reliable water access solutions for smallholder farmers
There are around half a billion smallholders in the world who mostly rely on rain-fed irrigation and have no access to grid-electricity.
It is known that introducing irrigation on these smallholdings has the capacity to more than triple the farmers’ incomes.
Most existing solutions are too costly, unreliable and low-quality, or incompatible with the water conditions on these smallholdings.
Sustainable water access solutions for community water
There are an estimated 2 billion people – a quarter of the global population – living without access to safe water.
WHO and UNICEF predict that it will cost at least $114 billion (USD) per year to achieve universal access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation services by 2030.
Traditional hand pumps and many solar pumps are unreliable, costly to maintain and incur recurrent annual losses.
Our pumps offer water access for farmers with greatly superior reliability and value for money compared to other options on the market.
We offer the most affordable long-term solution on the market, transforming the economics of clean water access from loss-making to self-sufficient
While Impact Pumps is not unique in trying to solve these problems, we have some unique tools to do so.
Through our collaborations with top Oxford academics and other experts in the field, millions of dollars in investment, and the credibility from successfully delivering rigorous development projects for years, we have already developed technologies that are changing the narrative.

We have already created transformative water access solutions…
… but, with a long way still to go, we have big plans for future development.
Technology cannot solve the world’s water access problems, on its own or overnight.
But, as our existing solutions demonstrate, technological advancements can underpin lasting, sustainable and meaningful change.
Our product development plans are ambitious and impactful. They include products to transform the economics of chlorination to bring affordable clean and safe water where it is currently beyond reach (see below).
Expanding Our Existing Ranges
Our existing products are exceptionally versatile. However, there can never be a ‘one size fits all’ with water access solutions.
Knowing this, we are working on expanding our product ranges to create variations that will cater to different needs and be suited to even more varied environments.
This will enable us to expand the scenarios in which our game-changing solutions can be used, allowing even more people to benefit from our transformative technologies.
New Product Development
With a wealth of expertise and a team of some of the greatest minds in the field, we continue to look for innovative ways to transform water access solutions for the better.
At the moment, our team is developing water access solutions aimed at addressing some of the most demanding challenges in the water access field, including safer water from low cost chlorination.
