Maliasili and Elimu pumps

Maliasili and Elimu pumps

During December 2017 both pumps were re commissioned  having not been usable for some time, Maliasili at least from the summer to 2014 and Elimu more recently.Kisuda Orgenes project managed the work and now both pumps are fully working again.

Each pump needed a complete overhaul due to salts in the ground eroding pipes. Although we had looked into using cheaper plastic this was not possible due to the depth of the pumps. The up keep of both pumps is proving costly to the project and therefore it has been decided to hand responsibility over to the community. We have attempted this in the past and not been successful, however we are now running the project down and therefore will not be able to step in to repair in future.
