Potable Water Supply
More than 1 billion people are denied the right to clean water and 2.6 billion people lack access to adequate sanitation. These statistics, taken from the 'Human Development Report 2006' by the United Nations Development Program, highlight the extent of the global water crisis. It is Mono Pump's goal to play a part in bringing water to every human being. A huge challenge but one we feel adequately equipped to face.
Mono began installing solar pumps in 1985 and since this time we have supplied in excess of 17,000 systems. As such we have over 20 years experience of supplying pumps into some of the harshest environments in the world.
In developing countries nearly all surface water is contaminated and therefore not 'safe drinking water'. The most commonly used 'safe' water source is from underground boreholes with some form of pump required to remove water from a borehole. In order to use the surface water it must be treated to remove the contamination, the Mono Solar Filtration system will remove the viral bacteria and colloidal contamination along with any suspended solids
The most common pumps used in remote communities are:
- Hand pumps
- Direct drive diesel driven borehole pumps
- Electric submersible pumps with diesel generator
- Solar submersible pumps
