How to build, install and maintain a rope pump.

A rope pump is essentially made up of a wheel, a rope onto which pistons or rubber washers are attached at regular intervals, a PVC pipe and a guide block located at the bottom of the well. This is an effective water pump, one of the simplest to make and maintain, even locally. It costs little.
