Water Pump Without Electricity
The conventional centrifugal pump needs either electricity or diesel engine, but the present innovation works on pedaling. This is a non-polluting and thus environment friendly device. This is a centrifugal water pump which is run by rotating the pedal of a cycle. The system comprises a bicycle, rim, belt-pulley, impeller and inlet and delivery pipes. A bare rim replaces the rear wheel of the bicycle. The rim is connected to another pulley with a smaller diameter. The supporting shaft of the smaller pulley carries another rim for second stage speed increment. The shaft also carries a flywheel to increase momentum of the system. The final supporting shaft is connected with an impeller that rotates at high speed and pumps water. The power (energy) generated through this process of pedaling is used to lift the water and push the water from a pipe into the farm for cultivation. This innovation is useful for pumping water from rivers, ponds, wells and similar water sources thus enabling poor farmers for pumping water for irrigation and cultivation.

This is a non-polluting and environment friendly device.
Since it is made of commonly available materials it is affordable to common people.
It requires less maintenance and minimum input energy is required to get the maximum output of water.
This device can be transported easily from one place to another.
The system can also be used in a flour mill and useful in remote area/ where electricity is problem
Problem Scale: Grave
