Solar Water Pumps
At Solar Water Pumps we pride ourselves on providing turnkey solar water pumping solutions to our clients.

The Water Pumping Solutions we Supply and Install includes:

  • Solar Powered DC pumps

  • AC powered pumps run from grid power, generator, off grid solar power systems or a hybrid combination of these

  • Filtration Systems

Specific Applications Include:

  • Domestic water supplies for off-grid and semi-off-grid homes . Although solar water pumps are used in this application, usually the home has an existing power system. In that case, it’s far more cost-effective to run an efficient DC or AC pump off that system.

  • Livestock & Game watering for pond and stream protection, rotational or prescribed grazing, and remote pasturing. This is the most popular use for solar pumping systems. They have proven to be cost-effective and efficient due to the fact that they save power, no Eskom pole costs need to be paid, no fuel needs to be driven around to run a generator.

  • Irrigation for small to large scale applications. With the reductions in the cost of PV modules and solar pumps, solar irrigation has become very cost-effective. Solar pumps are available that can move the larger volumes of water needed for irrigation.

  • Aquaculture for aeration and circulation. Aquaculture is another application where the need for power coincides with peak solar availability. This is combined with an off-grid solar installation for 24 hour operation due to aeration requirements.

  • Commercial & Industrial Pumps for specialised applications like corrosive liquids, hot liquids, heavy medium liquids & pastes, High volume, low head displacements, Stainless steel pumps, Hygiene or food grade good pumping, etc.

 

Why you should use a Solar Water Pumping System:

  • Solar water pumps are a cost-effective and dependable method for providing water in situations where;

  • Water resources are spread over long distances, water is not always where you need it; 

  • Power lines are expensive, few or non-existent;

  • Power and pole costs are high;

  • or fuel, transport and maintenance costs are considerable;

  • There are several methods for pumping water in remote areas, such as windmills, gas/diesel pumps, AC and ram pumps. But most of these options are either too expensive to install, or for fuel and maintenance, or require specific site conditions to operate.

  • Solar pumps can work for most locations and are at full capacity when needed most: during warm, sunny days.

  • In Southern Africa, they can be used year-round—which can be particularly helpful for potable water, animal grazing, and other farming operations.

  • For many sites, a solar pump is often the best option for reducing cost and labor.

  • In areas with a remote well and limited access to the power grid, solar pumps are the best option—particularly where utility interconnection costs more than R40,000 just to install and pole costs are between R1000 and R4000 per month plus power costs.

How Solar Water Pumps work:

  • Solar pumps are specifically designed to accept DC power directly from the solar modules, but some hybrid pumps can run from grid/generator power for backup;

  • Are optimized for operating under less-than-ideal sun conditions;

  • Where conventional AC-powered pumps require a stable voltage and frequency to operate;

  • Solar pumps can operate over a wide range of voltage and available current;

  • Conventional AC-powered pumps require large amounts of power to move large volumes of water in a short period of time.

  • Solar pumps typically move a smaller volume of water over an extended period of time.

  • This method requires far less power, which minimizes the size and cost of the PV array.
