The LIFEPUMP is a new design of handpump that is currently in development and testing by a partnership of organisations being led by Design Outreach (US). It is a progressive cavity pumped based on the now-defunct Moyno design. The need was identified by Water for Good in the Central African Republic who needed a robust deepwell handpump that could reach 100-150m below ground level.
