Pumps in Transit

Some months ago I wrote about Life Scout Isaac and his treadle pump project. Isaac's pumps have shipped, and are on their way to NC. Tho photos with this post show Isaac crating his pumps complete with suction hoses and filters for shipment, and delivering them to Fedex.

Isaac writes:
I was really happy to be able to finish the five pumps and ship them. Right now they are on their way to Haiti Fund, Inc. in North Carolina and then they will eventually be sent in a container directly to Haiti.  It couldn't have been done without all the people who helped with donations of materials, especially FedEx for their very generous donation of shipping costs from Oregon to North Carolina.

Sweet design. Have been busy developing a waterpump too, i tried marbles for valves, but ended up with sucker/suction cup. They are watertight and don't have much resistance. All made of pretty cheap and renewable materials (for a project in Africa)Now i'm in for makin a windmill to do the work, but a threadmill might be a good option too.
