Product Description

30 Day Money-Back Guarantee & Phone/Text Support

The RPS1.3-50 is the workhorse of the RPS submersible helical rotor line of solar well pumps. It features maximum head of 164 feet and flow rates up to 5.8 gallons per minute. For example, with 75 ft head, this pump will produce 3.7 gallons per minute.
These pumps are designed to operate on solar power and feature a brushless DC motor. Never replace another carbon brush! The entire pump housing is stainless steel to comply with all local code and pump installation requirements.

Each pump comes with a maximum power point (MPPT) tracking control unit to ensure maximum performance for the present conditions. These controllers are far superior to directly connecting the pump to the solar panels since they automatically adjust current and voltage to ensure maximum power generation. The maximum power point tracker includes a low water sensor to ensure the pump does not run dry and optional high water sensor to ensure the storage container does not overflow.

Included in the complete system are two (2) 100-watt mono crystalline silicon solar panels. These panels feature tempered glass for impact resistance in severe weather conditions. Each panel has one male and one female MC4 electrical connectors for easy waterproof hookup. We provide parallel pigtails as necessary to hookup panels, to eliminate the guesswork.

    I have replaced 3 windmill pumps with these RPS systems and I don’t have to worry about them no more. Been working for almost 2 years.

    We like to be prepared. If SHTF and the Grid goes down I want to be able to get water. I’ve got the 1.3 system stored in a Faraday cage if I need it.

    Cows have water and are happy, so I am happy.

    I was impressed by the quality of the system and ease at which everything can be hooked up. I still can’t believe I can produce over 4 GPM! Goodbye gas generator.

    this thing is great for the cabin as we don’t need too much water and the well is on the shallow size

    I own four RPS pumps. The water table varies on my properties and its been essential to have pumps that can handle different depths. The guys at RPS are great. Helpful upfront but also when I called for help installing my first kit. (its easy by the way I just had a brain fart) That’s when you can really tell a good company. I’ll probably be back again later this year.

    Installed with my son , good instructions ,painless install. Solid pump that is heavy and sturdy , working great so far. If you use poly pipe, make sure to use 2 hose clamps.

    we’ll see how it holds up.
    a great deal.
    i’ve been through so many of the plastic pumps.
    this one is all metal.
    happy so far.

    Everything went very well. Install took less than 2 hours. Was surprised how well it was pumping with heavy cloud cover. Very happy with the product and customer service. There has been a few friends checking it out to see if it will work for them. Thanks
