Handpump technology is documented as being the best option for the water supply of rural communities in the developing world. However, it has been observed that the amount of available handpump models significantly drops as water tables get deeper. Many handpumps are therefore expected to operate beyond their design specifications, which is responsible for many failures of handpump projects. This paper compares a total of 12 ultra deep-well handpumps (UDWHPs), with a pumping lift higher than 60 m, in terms of technologies, materials, outputs, costs and maintenance potentialities.
