The existing pipe routing had to be changed to reduce the immense pressure losses so that sufficient water pressure would reach the tap. In addition, septic tanks were built to collect the slightly dirty water, and when the function of the washbasins was finally tested, the general amazement was overwhelming: The faucets worked perfectly everywhere and the water pressure was strong. The news spread like wildfire that Adi had running water. The following day, the regional director of the missionary hospitals came to see it. We were asked to visit the missionary hospitals in Abedju, Adja, Ombayi and Ania to see if we could build a water supply there.
