Key Features

The Barsha Pump is the first type of hydro-powered pump developed by aQysta. It is a water wheel propelled pump that utilizes the energy from the flow of rivers and canals to pump water without requiring any fuel or electricity to be operated. Depending upon the soil, crop, climatic conditions, and irrigation technique, one Barsha Pump can irrigate up to 2 hectares of land, and process up to 40,000 liters per day. Although optional, it is recommended to use the Barsha Pump in integration with the storage system and efficient water distribution techniques such as a sprinkler system, drip system, mister, etc. as it helps irrigate larger areas with one Barsha Pump. In addition, every Barsha Pump that replaces a fuel pump saves over 1 ton of CO2 annually.
