How do I choose a solar pump?
Solar pumps come in a number of different styles depending on what water source you are pumping from, and what requirements you have for water volume, pressure, and night-time use. Submersible well pumps are designed to be narrow enough for well casings and generally are sized to the vertical lift that they need to provide to get water out of a well and to a tank at the surface. Solar surface pumps are increasingly popular too as they can pressurize water from a tank to homes, irrigation or livestock waterers. Choosing the right style and size of pump does take some practice. The team at RPS will ask you about your land, your water sources and the needed amount of water and help recommend a style and size of pump with a solar array that is adequate to power that pump for hours and hours each day when the sun is shining!
