Pumping Water Using Solar Power 

large product photo

 

Why use a solar water pump?

  • Easier to maintain than Windmills for water pumping
  • Great to transfer water from dam to dam
  • Reduce running cost of Pond Pumps and water features
  • Saves on installation cost of cabling
  • Head heights from 2.5m to 40m
  • Flow rates from 5000 to 40000 litres per day
  • Creative design to meet your specific needs.
  • Can assist in Aquaculture aeration.

SUN-SUB, SUB SURFACE PUMPING SYSTEMS

The "Sun-Sub" solar pumping system is the most popular solar pump. Available with solar arrays ranging from 150W up to 1800W, these systems can produce very high flows and discharge pressures up to 150m.

Typically used to replace windmills or diesel powered pumps on remote bores, the Sun-Sub solar pumping systems have helped thousands of farmers solve their water supply problems. Not only will a Sun-Sub solar pump provide its own power supply thus eliminating the need to take diesel fuel or AC power mains to the pump but the system is easily automated to turn on or off.

The Sun-Ray solar pump has been designed to transfer surface water from one place to another. For example from a Dam to another.

Its' available with either a stationary or GPS Tracking array, from 150W to 1575W, the Sun-Ray can deliver very high daily flows up to discharge pressures of 120m. The highly efficient, helical rotor pump is inherantly self-priming! As such the pump can be positioned up to 6m above the water source, allowing the pump to be installed on the top of dam walls or on river-banks above the high water mark.

The Sun-Ray is suitable for pumping water from springs, rivers, tanks and dams, it is available with a floating pontoon that has been designed to safely enable the pump to float on a dam or other water source.
