Abstract:

This is the full technical report on laboratory tests on the third batch of 6 handpumps, carried out at the Consumers' Association Testing and Research Laboratory at Gosfield, U.K. It also includes similar information on the 12 pumps tested for the World Bank in Batches 1 and 2. The test program was extensive, and all aspects of the evaluation are described in detail. Some general observations are noted, and for each pump there are sections on general information, inspection, weights and measures, engineering assessment, pump performance, user trial, endurance, abuse tests, and verdict, as well as examples of the force/displacement diagrams taken during the evaluation. The information in this report is intended to: (i) assist handpump manufacturers in improving the quality of their products; and (ii) assist authorities and agencies in developing countries in deciding between local manufacturing or importation of handpumps. It further seeks to; (iii) provide agencies in developing countries with an evaluation of handpumps in order to enable a more informed choice of pump to be made, and to ensure the right pump is selected to suit particular developing country conditions.
