Well Pumps

In the new buildings we’ve built for the Afghan National Army (ANA), facilities engineers kept finding the goosenecks on bathroom lavatories broken-off.

Many Afghans in the ANA are from remote areas of Afghanistan and have never seen indoor plumbing or even electricity. We now install industrial ball valves and hoses at the sinks.
