Solar Water Pumping

It is convenient to our divide our involvement in solar powered pumping into three areas:

(A)
small scale domestic pumping of up to 4,000 litres/day and to 50m head using economically priced diaphragm pumps such as Flojet, Shurflo and Johnson.
This includes both surface and borehole pumping

(B)
commercial scale pumping for stock watering,
irrigation, horticulture, village supplies, etc.
These systems need to be robust and reliable. For
these systems we supply Lorentz centrifugal pumps for low head high flow applications and Lorentz helical rotor pumps for heads up to to 180m.
The systems comprise a solar array, that provides power via a controller to the pump. The pump consists of either a centrifugal or helical rotor pump coupled directly to a DC motor.
The pump and motor are housed in a single
submersible waterproof assembly. The same motor/pump assembly is used regardless of whether pumping is from a bore, well, pond or stream. There are also balance of system components, such a solar array framing, cabling, fuses and high and low level
switches.

(C)
solar powered pool pumping including power for the chlorinates. In these applications we use Badu transfer pumps.

Fountain Pumps

 

AQUASOL1500
406.00
Fountain Kit
750.00

This small fountain kit contains a top quality 12 or 22 W Photowatt Solar Moduale,
a maximiser and a quality pump.

The kit does not include tubing, spray nozzle, fountain dish or plumbig to ensure the dish is kept full of water. These latter products are readily available from garden shops. The moduale comes with a 10 year warranty and a 25 -40 year design life. The pump is not a cheap bilge pump found in some garden kits.
It has a brushless motor with s magnetic drive (no shaft seal).
The pump has a 2 year warranty and a design motor life of 15,000 hours (eg: 5 - 6 year design life at 7 hours/day operation).
It delivers 13 litres/minute at 1 meter head or
5 litres/minute at 1.5m head (using the 22W solar moduale in full sun).

Watermax submersible pumps

The Watermax range of pumps are positive displacement, dual diaphragm submersible pumps constructed of high quality bronze and stainless steel. These world renowned pumps are manufactured in South Africa by All Power. The pumps deliver flow rates of between 700 and 17000 litres per day and can be run off a variety of solar modules configurations. Maximum total head depends on the solar module choice and pump selection, but can vary between 20m and 150m. Multiple pumps can also be installed down the same well or borehole.

Shurflo

Shurflo Smart Sensor Variable Speed Pressure Pump 12V
325.00

The Shurflo Smart Sensor Variable Speed Pump is a recent innovation in DC pumps. The embedded electronics controls the pump speed to what is required. So if you are just getting a 'dribble' out of your taps, the pressure pump will come on slowly - as you open the tap, the pump will speed up to produce the required flow. The variable speed pump offers several advantages over a conventional pressure pump: 1. Smoother water flow 2. Better temperature control in a hot water system 3. Uses less power as the pump only comes on at a speed which is required. 4. Less wear and tear on the pump cycling on/off so often 5. Quieter operation 6. Generally no need for an accumulator tank.

 

Shurflo 2088 12V pressure pump
211.00

Suitable for 12 VDC pressurized water systems and for general water transfer at heads of up to 25m
