Solar Pumping from Ponds to Stock Tanks
Submersible well pumps aren’t exclusively used in wells. Popular is using a well pump when you need an easy way to move water from a large tank or pond to stock tanks around the property. Self-priming surface pumps may not always be an option with cattle around. With the pump in the pond, this install shows the wiring of a tank full sensor (B), that will turn off the pump and prevent overflow. Your Pump’s Controller (A) is totally weatherproof and can be mounted easily with the solar panels. (See page in Pond section for ideas on how to float the pump in a pond) RPS well pumps can be oriented horizontally or vertically in the pond with no impact on functionality or longevity and unlike a surface pump, will never lose prime.
