Re: Why WaterAid Won't Use Playpumps in Their Projects

Fairwater, thanks for sharing your experience and there I was just about to try to get our fundraising department to start looking for private donors for a few pilot projects. The model just seemed too good to be true and the sort of thing that anyone would want to part with their hard earned cash t...

How Accurate are GPS Units for Topographic Surveys

Hey Guys

I'm planning on designing a couple of simple gravity fed water systems and was wondering if anyone had any information on the levels of vertical accuracy I can expect from a GPS unit. I'm using a Garmin Etrex Vista that has an altimeter.

Thanks

Does Anybody Have a Copy of World Bank Branch and Loop?

I've had a go designing the networks with EPANET but it doesn't do the optimization for you and I've done it by eye (but really want to compare with the Loop program). Also I'm ...

Why WaterAid Won't Use Playpumps in Their Projects

I was talking to a friend of mine at WaterAid the other day who mentioned that they do not want to use playpumps in any of their programs because they are worried that the children may stop playing and water would not be available for the community. Based on my own experience this sounds like madnes...
