In an era where sustainability is of utmost importance, finding innovative solutions to conserve and utilize natural resources is crucial. When it comes to water solutions, solar water pumps are emerging as the future of sustainable technology. With their ability to harness the power of the sun, these pumps offer a clean and renewable energy source, reducing reliance on fossil fuels and minimizing environmental impact.

Solar water pumps have a range of benefits that make them a compelling choice for both residential and commercial applications. They are cost-effective. They eliminate the need for electricity or fuel. Moreover, Solar water pumps have a range of benefits that make them a compelling choice for both residential and commercial applications.

By incorporating solar technology into water solutions, we can enhance the resilience and efficiency of our water systems, especially in regions where access to electricity is limited.

How solar water pumps work

Solar water pumps harness their power supply directly from solar panels. This innovative technology allows for a continuous and reliable water supply without the need for a complicated solar array.

Useful applications for our solar water pumps

Solar Hot Water Systems: Our S5 & D5 model pumps are perfect for solar hot water systems. As they can handle the high temperatures that these systems can generate, along with the high pressures created by those high temperatures. As these systems do not require a high flow rate the S5 and D5 can be operated by a single solar panel

Back Yard Water Features:
Solar water pumps can be utilized to create stunning water features, such as fountains or decorative ponds. These pumps offer an environmentally friendly and energy-efficient way to add beauty and tranquility to outdoor spaces.

C1 Circulating Pump

Our C1 series micro centrifugal pump is submersible and is powered by a three-phase brushless DC motor. Quiet, compact and lightweight, it comes in 5 different style heads (A, B, C, D, E), depending on your plumbing fittings.

S5 Solar Hot Water Pump

The S5 Solar Hot Water Pump works well for most circulation pump applications. It can do so without connection to the power grid and is highly efficient. The S5 can connect directly to a PV panel. It is efficient and has an extremely low power consumption.

D5 Solar Hot Water Pump

The D5 Solar Hot Water Pump has a soft start-up feature which reduces high in-rush current.  When the photovoltaic panel provides sufficient power, the pump goes through the alignment phase by turning the rotor into the position required for start-up. The processor then waits until the capacitor is sufficiently charged. This enables a start-up with minimal power (less than two watts). This process minimizes cycling due to unsuccessful attempts to connect. Even after prolonged shutdown, the pump will start reliably.
