Criticisms[edit source]

I really hope that this article will discuss the criticism and current state of the PlayPump.

I came to say the same thing. One useful link I know of: The Playpump – A Review from TeachersPosted on August 18, 2010 by owenscott (that's #6 of 6 posts). This article could be a really interesting case study on appropriateness.
It's not all depressing news though - treadle pumps are still awesome ;-). --Chriswaterguy 04:08, 25 February 2011 (PST)
Lonny moved the comment to the article (with request to address criticisms). I started to edit slightly, but "slightly" turned into "quite a bit" :-). There is now a bunch of links with brief summaries - more work needed to make it a good article. --Chriswaterguy 08:17, 7 November 2011 (PST)
