  • They are more cost-effective than other pumps for medium lifts (upto 15 m) and are safe from bacteriological contamination since all underground parts are made of non-corrosive materials like PVC or Stainless Steel.
  • Cheaper than pumps which use MS riser Pipes.
  • 100% corrosion resistant
  • High Discharge-give water both in the upward as well as the downward stroke.

The term ‘ Direct Action ‘ for a handpump refers to a vertical pumping action using a ‘ T ‘ bar handle connected to a buoyant PVC pump rod. The load is transmitted directly from the user to the pump rod and piston during operation. The buoyant pump rod, of a relatively large diameter, displaces water in both the upward and downward stroke and the buoyancy of the pump rod makes pumping operation easy. The above mechanism eliminates the complications of a lever action handpump such as bearings, axle etc. The direct action handpump is designed for esey installation, construction and maintenance .
