depending on operation maintenance cost, Repair techniques are used to restore the structural integrity and shape of functional state. For example, a Afridev hand water pump can be repaired so that it does not have any damaged mechanism or unsafe operational use. Repair techniques generally include removal of damaged parts and placement of new parts in its place. eg. foot valve seal.. Repair methods, however, do little to address the cause of assistance faults. Therefore, simple repairs typically fail prematurely since nothing is done to mitigate or stop the primary deterioration mechanism. Rehabilitation methods, in addition to restoring structural integrity and shape, mitigate or stop the process responsible for the damage. Because rehabilitation includes addressing the cause of the problem itself, is must form part of CapManEx and last significantly longer.
