Nowadays, the ancient pressurized well is still widely utilized in most parts of Africa. Fetching water for daily use has become a routine for many African children. The ordinary pressurized well is generally designed for adults. The process of pressurizing water is fatiguing and tiresome.This design attaches a seesaw structure to the well. With the seesaw swinging back and forth, the piston under the well is activated and the water is driven up. In this way, not only the adults can fetch water normally but also the kids can amuse themselves while getting water.
