Brief

Reduced weight, size and production costs have been achieved by Cre’active Design, with its new hand-held water pump developed for water testing company Waterra. The PowerPack PP1 has been created to replace two previous models, both of which took two

people to carry and operate. The PP1 can be operated by one person, and

can pump water

at greater depths. It tips the scales at under 12kg but can be carried like a back pack with a complementary frame.
