Oxfam supports the use of the BluePump. The quality of the components and build are extremely high. This unit shows significant improvements in reliability and longevity over other manufacturers' pumps, especially at depths over 50 m. The higher initial cost will be offset by the lower costs of maintenance and the inconvenience of pump down time.

The Supply Centre can offer quotes for other types of hand pump. For example, if an area has successful operation and maintenance of another brand it may be advantageous to supply the same type.

Any quotation for hand pumps will require detailed information, such as:
  • How many are required
  • What are the expected depths for pump installation (for rising main quantities)
  • Will the installation be 'hanging pump' (<40 m depth) or 'bottom support'.
  • What spares are to be supplied with the pumps
