DC Solar Water Pump

A DC Solar water pump uses the energy created by solar panels to run the motor. The electricity generated by a solar system is Direct Current (DC) and this can be converted to Alternating Current (AC) through the connection of an inverter.There are a number of solar water pumps powered…

Solar Water Pumping System

Good solar water pumping systems require a reliable pump powered by the energy from high quality solar panels. Simplicity and functionality are also crucial. The ability to protect the pump from dry running is critical and, when necessary, to switch to a conventional power supply from a generator or mains…

Solar Borehole Pumps

Boreholes that intercept aquifers have been drilled for centuries. In the UK an owner of land with a borehole can abstract 20000 litres of water per day without an abstraction licence. If the owner is a dairy farmer this will be enough water to satisfy the daily demand of 150…

Solar Powered Well Pumps

A water well is typically a catchment chamber from which a supply of water is drawn. The difference between a water borehole and water well is normally the diameter and depth of the construction plus the quantity and quality of the supply. Water wells tend to have a much wider…

Solar Water Pump

Pumping water at remote locations can be difficult without access to mains electricity. There are probably only three ways, apart from carrying the water in containers. Firstly, hand pumps. But these can only transfer water from fairly shallow depths and they require manual labour.Secondly, using an electric pump connected to…

Solar Submersible Pump

Solar submersible pumps are usually installed in narrow and deep holes that are drilled by specialists with the objective of locating water. Water is often located to a depth of 100 meters but it can on occasions be much deeper. However, there are instances when the water strike can be…

Solar Pump Kits

Communities in remote locations where electricity can only be created through the use of a generator are increasingly looking towards water pumping systems powered by solar energy. Investing in this technology can be daunting as it is often the first or possibly the only time it is necessary to consider…
