Simple Pump in developing nations.
Installing on an existing pump pedestal.
A DRAMATIC BENEFIT
Installation onto an existing Mark II/III/VLOM or AFRIDEV pedestal
While the extensive site preparation discussed in the TCO is not required for our pump, if a Simple Pump is replacing one of these pumps, we have developed a way to install our pump on a pre-existing installation, with a minimum of cost and disruption.
With a site that already has the Mark II/III/VLOM or AFRIDEV pedestal installed (sunk into concrete), our Pedastal-to-Casing Adapter bolts to the top of the existing pedestal.
Then, our pump is installed on top of that attachment, as it would be on any well casing. The height of the Simple Pump can be adjusted about 2.5 feet up or down; in this configuration, we expect that it will be installed with almost no riser tube extending out of our new Adapter.
