Finding a Way

In many developing areas in Africa, accessing clean drinking water is a serious challenge for thousands of communities. The only sources of water available to their residents often are overrun with bacteria, waste and harmful contaminants. Many times, a family’s only way to obtain potable water is to walk long distances to the nearest well or other groundwater source. Such a task has several adverse effects, particularly on women and children, who may spend much of their time retrieving low-quality water for their families instead of attending school.

Protecting Our Resources

Harvesting and reusing rainwater is not only a way to supplement water supplies, it also helps protect vital water resources from pollutants that storm water runoff carries into them. As concerns about water pollution and the impending global water shortage grow, it is increasingly important for everyone to take part in conserving and protecting drinking water supplies.

The Keys to a Healthy Pump

The initial purchase price of a pump is just a small part of its actual life-cycle cost. Whether your pump application is municipal, commercial or industrial, the long-term costs can result in a much larger investment. Luckily, there are steps you can take to minimize this investment and increase your pump’s life expectancy by following proper installation and maintenance procedures.
