Water-Increased: Pakistan water wells

Water is a priceless gift of nature and an essential ingredient of our lives. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) standards, only 15% of Pakistan’s population can access safe drinking water. Additionally, four out of five diseases are waterborne due to water pollution.
Humanity-Increased is working on an awareness campaign on the vulnerabilities of contaminated water and the importance of clean water in running clean water projects. From the installation of water filtration plants in metropolitan cities, of Sindh and Punjab provinces, construction of hand pumps in villages, submersible pumps and tanks in Tharparkar Sindh, digging wells in deserts and remote areas of Balochistan, solar-powered projects in Balochistan.

The Small Handpump is a conventional lever action handpump. It is designed to serve communities of up to 200 persons. These handpumps are fully corrosion-resistant, easy to install, and have excellent potential for community-based maintenance.


Community Hand Pump wells

conventional lever action handpump. It is designed for heavy-duty use, serving communities of up to 300 persons. The Afridev Pump is fully corrosion-resistant, easy to install, and has excellent potential for community-based maintenance. The configuration includes an "open top" cylinder: the piston can be removed from the cylinder without dismantling the rising main. The foot valve is retractable with a fishing tool. This pump is also known as the Deep-well piston hand pump. Community hand pumps are ideal for villages and households where surface sources are common, so only a basic pump suffices for communities trying to meet their water requirements. Suction hand pumps are economical and easy to install and maintain. Maintenance is done at the village level without the need for specialist parts. The pumps are made from cast iron.



A submersible water pump operates beneath the earth's surface. Submersible Water Pump pushes water to the surface. Most submersible pumps are long cylinders that are about 3 to 5 inches in diameter and 2 to 4 feet long. Submersible Water Pumps have a hermetically sealed motor that is close-coupled to the body of the water pump. Having a hermetically sealed motor prevents the water from getting inside the pump's motor and causing a short circuit. Other components of a submersible water pump are the cable, which is connected to the motor, and a pipe that transports the water to the surface. Water is then stored in water storage tanks constructed near the Submersible water pump tube well. Submersible Water Pump projects are best suitable to run systems for water pumping in remote areas or where electricity has frequent outages.



Water pumping is generally dependent on conventional electricity. Solar pumping systems are environment-friendly and require low maintenance with no fuel cost. Keeping in view the shortage of electricity in Urban, rural, and remote areas in many parts of Pakistan, Solar power pumping is one of the most promising applications using solar energy. The technology is similar to a conventional water pumping system i.e. electrical submersible water pumping except that the power source is solar energy. Solar Submersible water pumping technique has been gaining importance in recent years due to the non-availability of electricity. The flow rate of pumped water is dependent on incident solar radiation and the size of the PV array. A properly designed PV system results in significant long-term cost savings as compared to conventional pumping systems. In addition, tanks can be used for water storage in place of requirement.
