Product Description

The RPS1.8-80 pump the perfect balance of cost and performance, which makes it one of our best sellers and most recommended systems. When a smaller pump just won’t cut it, we fully recommend the RPS1.8-80. It features maximum head of 262 feet and flow rates up to 7.9 gallons per minute. For example, with 150 ft head, this pump will produce 4.0 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 four 100-watt mono crystalline silicon solar panels. These panels feature tempered glass for impact resistance in severe weather conditions.

    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.

    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.

    We installed this with my inlaws. Easy install. We added a 12v booster pump to run water up to our kitchen, washer and bathroom. Nice to have the extra panels too.

    Jeremy and Mike are top notch guys and realy helpful over email and phone — better quality than anything else we could find — and cheaper too.

    Jeremy was very helpful. Pumping great so far. Happy with the rate. Better than I’d thought.

    great pressure and better than estimate gpm – be sure to mount the float switch casing to something solid in the tank as the inner part needs to move up and down. Once i figured that out, smooth sailing – thanks guys

    I highly recommended a friend call RPS and do it right the first time. Everything is running beautifully I couldn’t be happier. I’ll continue to praise you guys to others as often as I can.
