Hippo Water Roller

The Hippo Water Roller aims to alleviate the daily struggle of women and children by helping them to easily transport more water at a time from water points located far from their homes.

The Hippo Water Roller is the most efficient and appropriate technology to achieve this purpose and is well established in those communities which have been lucky enough to benefit from this project.

Instead of being carried in a 20 l bucket on the head, the weight of the water remains on the ground in a drum. A steel clip-on handle allows the women and children to roll the drum by either pushing or pulling it, depending on gradients.

Compared to a bucket, the Hippo Water Roller allows 5x more water to be carried home. As an additional benefit, it saves time and while women can use it for other household tasks, children can attend school more often, resulting in better education.

Basic hygiene and health can be significantly improved and long-term injuries from carrying heavy weights are prevented.

The durable design ensures a lifespan of 5 to 7 years and often even longer, depending on prevailing conditions. The maintenance-free design – no consumable parts – ensures sustainability and long-term success in remote locations.

“A smarter way to collect water.”
