A VLOM pump is one which can be operated and sustained using Village Level Operation and Maintenance.
The term VLOM is also used, meaning Village Level Operation and Management of Maintenance.
This addition emphasizes the role of users as the managers of maintenance – they may choose to use someone from outside the village to assist with more complicated repairs. Not all maintenance and repair needs to be done by the villagers for a pump to be classed as a VLOM pump.

Bush Pump Zimbabwe Standard Specification

Institution: Department of Water Resources and Development

The Bush Pump has been used in Zimbabwe for over 60 years. It was first designed in 1933 by Tommy Murgatroyd, a water suuply office working in Plumtree, Matebeleland, and some of his early pumps survive to this day.

The Zimbabwe 'Bush Pump' is almost unique on the African continent in that it was conceived and designed and is wholly manufactured within Zimbabwe itself. The family of 'Bush Pumps' owe their success to a simplicity of design and rugged construction which originated from Murgatroyd's pioneering work. The Bush Pump continues to serve the people of Zimbabwe, seventy years after the first pumps of the family were designed and built.

The Afridev Handpump is produced in several developing countries. The quality, however, varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. While most of the quality related problems can be attributed to lack of internal quality control mechanism at the factory level, others can be attributed either to inadequate procurement procedures or insufficient understanding of the quality assurance requirements by inspection agencies.

Report on The Performance of Afridev and Nira Handpumps on the Upper Regions Community Water Project (COWAP) Ghana Report for the GWSC/CIDA Community Water Project Upper Regions, Ghana

Institution: CIDA

Between 1974 and 1981, approximately 2700 boreholes were constructed and installed with handpumps in what was at the time the Upper Region of Ghana, under bilateral agreements between the governments of Ghana and Canada (the Canadian International Development Agency). The handpumps installed during this period were the Moyno and Monarch pumps, which, while robust, required heavier tools and equipment and some specialized skills to maintain. Management and maintenance of these sites was under a centralized system, whereby communities paid a tariff to the national water agency then responsible (the then Ghana Water and Sewerage Company), which fielded repair technicians to perform the work. Problems of long waiting times for repairs were very common due to repair team logistical problems, lack of equipment and shortages of spares.
