Water is one of the essential substance in our body. All human being needs water to continue their life. Nevertheless, there are still many of us living in a Water-rich area wasting water without any awareness. Access to clean drinking water is even critical for a human survival. Do you know that every 15 seconds, a child die because of disease from unsafe water.

"PlayPumps International’s mission is help improve the lives of children and their families by providing easy access to clean drinking water, enhancing public health, and offering play equipment to millions across Africa.". One of the "great" invention by PlayPumps International is the PlayPump® water system.

National Geographic Feature on PlayPump Water Systems





PlayPump® water system is invented to provide easy access to clean drinking water while bring joy to children.




How PlayPump® water Works ?
While children have fun spinning on the PlayPump merry-go-round (1), clean water is pumped (2) from underground (3) into a 2,500-liter tank (4), standing seven meters above the ground.

A simple tap (5) makes it easy for adults and children to draw water. Excess water is diverted from the storage tank back down into the borehole (6).

The water storage tank (7) provides a rare opportunity to advertise in outlaying communities. All four sides of the tank are leased as billboards, with two sides for consumer advertising and the other two sides for health and educational messages. The revenue generated by this unique model pays for pump maintenance.

The design of the PlayPump water system makes it highly effective, easy to operate and very economical, keeping costs and maintenance to an absolute minimum.

Capable of producing up to 1,400 liters of water per hour at 16 rpm from a depth of 40 meters, it is effective up to a depth of 100 meters.
How much $0.6 worth in the area that you are staying ? In my country, it only cost a plate of rice. However, in this campaign, $0.6 provides a child with 1 years clean water...



PlayPump International is running a campaign "100 pumps in 100 days" and today is the 17th days, another 83 days to reach the 100th days. If you are kind and interested, visit here...
