Abstract: Most people who live in rural areas come from the low income families. One reason for this is that the revenue generation is limited to certain domestic economic activities due to poor access to electricity. As a result, it limits the productivity of the people in these particular areas. By using this new pump where sling pump concept is adopted, it is believe that the people in rural areas could have more access to electricity and simultaneously grow the income related activities. This new pump is capable of providing water supply to the domestic agriculture areas. Sling pump is the enhancement of the coil pump where it powered by the water flow. This pump is driven by a propeller which finally resulting the entire pump to rotate the water and turns it into stream. Water and air enter the rear side of the pump and are forced to flow through a coil of plastic tubes while the pump is rotating. Water will be channeled through a hose and into stock tank or reservoir. The pump is applicable for low head and low flow river. From the experiment, this pump is capable to deliver up to 0.5m3 in a minute for stream water with flow rate 5L/s.
