Water Pump

 

Introduction

This bicycle machine pumps water at 5-10 gallons per minute

from wells and boreholes up to 30 in meters depth, (compared

to an electric pump that only pumps up to 12 meters

deep). Provides irrigation and drinking water where electricity

is not available.

 

Components include a bicycle, wheels removed, attached to

strong angled uprights, set in a concrete base. The flywheel is

made from a bicycle wheel with side walls from a car tire attached

with wire. Concrete gives the flywheel weight. The flywheel

stand is also set in a concrete base.
