Diaphragm Pump

The diaphragm pump has been developed mainly to pump water for small-scale irrigation.  It was designed by the Volunteers in Technical Assistance (VITA) from the United States and laboratory- and field-tested in 1991.  This testing led to a re-design to the current model which is being manufactured at TDAU.  It is made of Mukwa hardwood, steel and an old bus or truck tube rubber.
