Obviously water pumps should have see-saws on them! Countries in parts of Africa still rely on the bore-well system to pump drinking water out of the ground. I’ve tried my hand on these pumps and they’re no easy task. They require a good deal of continuous forceful pumping, and I can only imagine how difficult it must be to do this daily after having to walk long distances between the home and the community bore-well.
The Seesaw Well allows you to offload the pumping activity to children by disguising in the avatar of a seesaw. The upward and downward movement allows the well to pump up water, hands-free, while keeping the kids entertained!
The Seesaw Well is a winner of the iF Design Talent Award for the year 2017.
