There is an impending world food crisis and we need innovation for production and logistics if we are to feed the future world.
Water Powered Technologies are dedicated to producing zero energy usage water systems which, unlike boreholes and wells, put no strain on underground water resources (aquifers). They deliver by using available surface water, pumping and storing it to alleviate drought, all without using any electricity or fuel. It has been proved that by using the stored water for irrigation, it can increase yields, feeding more people, thus helping to avert the world food crisis and ultimately the prosperity of the community.
Based on a traditional hydro ram, Water Powered Technologies has advanced the design with modern materials and a patented new Venturi Valve which has enabled the Papa Pump to be lighter, smaller, more durable and more efficient than the old traditional cast iron ram pumps. Using the new valve has increased efficiency and the use of modern material has increased the durability of parts and reduced costs, for instance replacing a Papa Pump valve is a fraction of the cost of the traditional valves.
“It is probably the world’s simplest and most cost effective water pumping solution!”
