What is a solar pump and how it works


Solar pumps are an economical and practical solution for supplying water to inconvenient or budget friendly places.


Solar water pumps are used in residential and commercial applications. They are a clean alternative to fossil fuel-driven windmills and generators.


There are two main types of solar water pumps. The surface pump is located on the ground and moves water through pipes. These can slowly move large amounts of water. Surface pumps are usually found in farms or large irrigation systems where water needs to be moved from the lake to the field. The submersible solar water pump is located underground, but the solar panel is connected to the ground. Submersible pumps are used to move water from the well to the surface.

How does a solar water pump work? The main difference between a solar pump and a conventional pump is the power supply. Solar water pumps rely on solar panels to operate equipment. The solar panel can be built into the device or a separate structure connected to the pump by wires. The solar panel then powers the equipment, allowing it to work independently of any existing electrical system.


Solar pumps range in size from small pumps to power fountains, and large pumps used to pump water from underground aquifers. Built-in panels are usually used for smaller pumps, while larger pumps require separate installation.


Many applications of solar pump systems: watering of livestock, protection of ponds and streams, campsites, irrigation, filled swimming pools, garden fountains and other water features, deep well pumping, water supply to remote villages, homes and farms, drinking water (clean water treatment) , Medical clinics, heated water and even underfloor heating, watering large-scale commercial operations.


The characteristics of solar water pumps: extremely easy to install, energy saving (no fuel cost), high cost efficiency.


The concept is simple: if the sun is shining, the pump is running. If the sun is not bright, the pump is turned off. Produce water when it is most needed-during the hot and dry months of the year, you can use DC motors, use solar panels, DC power supplies or batteries for operation Multi-purpose application: low maintenance (unattended operation), with or without battery backup storage capacity, can be used in almost any location-city, country, remote area, suburb, etc.


A key fact of solar water pumps is that they only provide electricity during the day. In many cases, this is sufficient for the intended use, but if the sun needs to be pumped once the sun goes down, a pump with battery storage should be considered. Large pumps may include battery arrays that can provide continuous power for 12 hours or more, but such battery arrays are inherently bulky and may require separate sheltered storage to prevent severe weather.
