Today, almost 800 million people still have no access to safe, clean drinking water. The UN estimates that 3 to 4 million people die each year from the consequences of water-related diseases.
That is about 10.000 people dying every day - most of them are children under the age of 5.
To fight the global water crisis, Pumpmakers has developed the world’s most innovative solar water pump.
Thanks to the latest technology and a patented concept, the NSP Solar Pump helps people access water even in the remotest corners of the world and provides a unique opportunity to those wanting to start their own business.
The NSP Solar Pump has been designed to ensure that
- it incurs no running costs and uses renewable solar energy to easily pump water out of water wells;
- it efficiently pumps up to a depth of 100m/300ft, even on cloudy days;
- its optional hand pump allows water to be pumped at night;
- it requires NO maintenance at all - high-quality maintenance-free materials make this possible;
- it is salt water resistant to avoid corrosion;
- it is affordable and can be manufactured all over the world to foster local economic development;
- it can easily be assembled locally, using local skills and parts.
What’s more, the Pumpmakers platform gives everyone free access to easy-to-use DIY instructions, constructions plans and videos to build and install our NSP Solar Pump.
In 2011, our team of engineers and constructors took the challenge posed by the global water crisis head-on to design and develop a truly self-sustainable water pump system.
Our goal was clear: thousands of people all over the world should have access to safe, clean drinking water.
A year later, we presented the NSP Solar Pump as the very first maintenance-free and corrosion-resistant water pump system that can be manufactured locally, and that runs entirely on solar power, needing no back-up electricity and incurring no additional costs.
Besides that, the NSP Solar Pump system can easily be set up to replace pre-installed water pumps, such as hand water pumps, generator-powered pumps or windmill water pumps that are typically found in rural and remote areas.
In order to reach as many people as possible, we will be setting up an international Pumpmakers platform.
Its goal is to provide those in need with quick and easy access to safe, clean drinking water and support those who want to start a business:
- Using the DIY instructions, construction plans and videos that can be downloaded from our Pumpmakers platform,
everyone can become a pumpmaker!
- Entrepreneurs and companies have the opportunity to use our business concept to start their own Pumpmakers business.
It’s as easy as child’s play: Simply download Pumpmakers DIY instructions free of charge.
In order to build on and fund this infrastructure, Pumpmakers has launched a campaign on crowdfunding platform GoFundMe.com (for a Donation is NO registration required!) and opened a own donation account for it. (Account: Pumpmakers Donations, IBAN: AT08 2070 6044 0362 9720, BIC: KSPKAT2KXXX)
Our NSP Solar Pump is a vital contribution to reducing water shortages and poverty worldwide.
It is an ideal solution for everyone who wants to become energy independent of electricity, save costs and improve the quality of life for others with a steady supply of water.
It is also an ideal solution for development aid organizations striving for sustainability and increased self-sufficiency among the population through self-help assistance.
Water is our most precious resource. Water is life! We are convinced that showing people how they can help themselves to sustainably access water will help them build better lives for themselves.
Pumpmakers solar pumps have been supplying the remote village Ndzofuine near Chidenguele in Mozambique with clean drinking water since 2012.
With a capacity of up to 5.000 litres of water being pumped out from a depth of 80m each day, the system has opened the door to a brighter future for some 800 local people.
