Gulper pump helps Tanzania's sewage problem
Only 10% of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania's biggest city, is connected to the central sewage system.
The pit latrines often overfill and emptying them is infrequent, dangerous and unhygienic.
Water Aid is pioneering a cheap simple pump and motorbike device that empties up to six latrines a day and is helping to reduce diseases such as cholera and typhoid.
