EFFICIENT & APPROPRIATE TECHNOLOGY

Water-on-tap is a luxury that hundreds of millions will never get to enjoy and for this reason, the Hippo Water Roller is an appropriate solution.

The weight of water – 90L (kg) is borne on the ground making it far easier to move than a 20L (kg) bucket carried on the head.

Five times the amount of water is rolled in the time it takes to collect one bucket of water.

A steel clip-on handle allows the drum to be rolled by either pushing or pulling depending on gradients, and the design allows two people to pull the roller up very steep gradients.

The large opening allows for easy filling and cleaning of the interior. The sealed lid ensures hygienic storage of water.

Dimensions:

  • 90L Drum: 50 x 50 x 65 cm
  • Handle: 100 x 70 x 3cm
  • Weight: 8.5kg *
  • Opening: 135 mm / 5.3 inch diameter

* Effective weight is only 10 kilograms (22 pounds) on level ground when filled with 90 L water.
