BluePump items & Spare Parts

The BluePump is very reliable and therefore it does not need spare parts all the time as most other handpumps do... This means that the BluePump is in fact very economical to operate, at a fraction of the cost of the standards handpumps presently in use in Africa.

Nevertheless, we advise a service visit every year by a qualified local Pump Mechanic to check on all nuts & Bolts and the Pumping System.

On top of that: it is good to know that you can always get any part that you may need.

Spares are available from your local country dealer, or from a BluePump NGO partner, or directly from Boode B.V. We are known for a quick end quality service because we know that pumps need to work, every day.

BluePump SMS service

On each BluePump, you will find our international service mobile nr. +31 6 236 686 15 that you can SMS, WhatsApp or call in case you need urgent assistance or spare parts. Actually, we hardly receive any calls, which indicates that most BluePumps are functioning all over Africa.

On the front side of the BluePump, you will find in the cap 4 small holes, here you can attach with rivets your own project info or any message or advertisement that you may like. You can order an aluminum plate with 4 holes and rivets for that purpose when you buy your BluePump. 

In the technical drawing below you find a list of all current parts of the BluePump model 2019. In case you have an older type, don't worry, all new parts are compatible with the older parts.

List of current BluePump spare parts
Below you find several technical drawings that clearly indicate all parts of the BluePump in their position. In case you need one or more parts, just send us the number and description of the parts that you find in this drawing.

Please note that the PVC Flange is not anymore multiple purpose for the hanging as well as for the Bottom Support system. The hanging Flange #6 is now only for the hanging installation and the Bottom Support Flange #54 is now pre-glued to the longer (80cm) Bottom Support sleeve #52. It was needed to make the BS sleeve longer to compensate for eventual sinking in of the BS pipes.
Also, the BS sleeve is not anymore put in the Cap #41 together with the small materials and bearings, but comes separete with the Pump items.

Composed items
The following items come already pre-glued from the factory to avoid confusion and to speed-up the installation; these combination have their own specific nr.:
#110 = (#3 + #2) the conical seat pipe;
#112 = (#52 + #53 + #54) the Bottom Support sleeve.
