This case study traces the development of handpumps in India, including a review of the systems developed to ensure consistent, high quality production of the India Mark II. It investigates the pressures that led to the introduction of a new variant of the India Mark II — the India Mark III — a handpump designed for easy maintenance and repair.

Phase 1 of the Orissa Drinking Water Supply project took place from August 1985 to December 1987 and resulted in the installation of about 1600 handpumps on tube wells. In Phase II of the project, 2000 handpumps were installed by August 1989 in 5 blocks and a further 600 pumps installed in another 4 blocks.

This paper confines itself to the analysis of the maintenance data of the 29 India Mark II pumps since their installations in 1986 and up to the 31st March 1992.

India Mark II Redesign 2007-2012 Concept Paper

Downloads: 70


Author: MATTHEWS-FREDERICK, R.
Year of Publishing: 2012
Publisher: unpublished
Institution: Nile Centre for Alternative Technology

The following form the considered conclusions of Rowan Matthews-Frederick after managing a program with Medair, North Sudan in West Darfur which was responsible for installation and maintenance of more than 170 India Mark II hand pumps. Further to this, work has continued in constructing, testing and computer modelling some solutions to hand pump issues with Nile Centre for Alternative Technology (NileCAT). There are many other ideas yet to be pursued that have potential to increase the reliability and ease of maintenance of the hand pumps.
Although the following observations tend to focus on the engineering related issues it is not intended to take away from the importance of the ‘softer’ issues. Please forgive the predominance of using the first person and the occasional ‘royal we’. This is not intended to be a thorough going engineering report. It is born of a diverse experience and desire to provide the basic necessities to the world’s most disadvantaged people.

Institution:

The NGO InterAide has experience of supporting operation and maintenance of rural water supplies. Initiatives started in 1999 in Lilongwe and Zomba districts where there are now a total of 59 shops selling handpump spare parts and 84 private sector area mechanics repairing handpumps. Based on these fruitfull experiences InterAide started (first with European Union funds, then with Pro Victimis Fundation funds) a new Operation and Maintenance project in 2008 in the three districts of Mchinji, Dowa and Salima located in the central region of Malawi. As about 80% of handpumps installed in Malawi are Afridev, InterAide decided to initially focus on this hand pump.
This report provides a description of the project, including the financial and human resource inputs.
