Salient Features

Treadle pumps provide one of the best ways of using human power to lift water. Sizing of the components and careful design are essential to ensure that this is done in the most efficient manner. Pump output requirements of discharge and pressure must be matched with the mechanical components, such as the diameter of the pistons, their stroke length, the weight of the operator and the cadence – the frequency with which the treadles are pushed up and down.


Superflow Malawi Treadle Pump is a very simple device, farmers take the pump near to the water spot or boring and insert the inlet pipe into the water or boring and start paddling and water delivered from the outlet.
