The BluePump is rock-solid, simple & straight forward, all components are made from quality materials; therefore the BluePump is reliable, cheap & easy to maintain. The piston has NO rubber seal and there are no fast moving spare parts.
The BluePump is therefore the most reliable solution for rural water supply.
The BluePump is mounted on a solid concrete pedestal with 6 anchor bolts. In case of deep installations, the rods can be equiped with floaters and the handle can have an additional counterweight to make pumping lighter. To avoid stress on the PVC pipes, the BluePump rising main pipes can be extended with a free moving bottom support system (BPS). In addition, rod stabilizers can be added to the rods for better pumping and to better deal with sand and silt in the borehole.
Installation is easy and can be done without specific tools by 2 persons. First the PVC pipes are installed with a rope (attached on the bottom pipe) and after that the cylinder is lowered inside the PVC pipes with the rods. The position of the cylinder must be at least 10m to 15m below the static water level, depending on the expected fluctuations of the water level. For inspection, the cylinder can always easily be taken out while the PVC pipes stay in the borehole.
