Moses Banda, who is trained as a driller by the Jacana SMART Centre in Chipata, Zambia, has invented a ‘Super Slim Solar pump’ on the basis of a fuel pump. All parts are worldwide available in common hardware shops and shops that sell car parts. Cost about $100 including solar panel.
The pump is ideal for very narrow tube wells, starting at 2″ (50mm) casing and bigger. Suitable for wells that produce very little water because it pumps slowly but steady. After 5½ hours an overhead tank of 1000 liter is full.
Moses Banda is trained and guided by Jacana SMART Centre Zambia.
