Water Innovation Challenge Day 2

Water pumping to shower

The construction challenge was to install a water pump, solar panel to power the pump, shower head and storage vessel with a float switch to disconnect the pump when the tank is full.

As well as the construction work, manuals explaining how to construct and then how to maintain had to be produced.  After some tough assessments of the manuals produced on the work completed on Day 1, there was a great improvement in the quality of the manuals.
