Solar Transfer Pump from Spring Box, Pond, Cistern or Shallow Well
A popular alternative to a submersible pump is a surface transfer pump that will pull water out of a spring box, pond, shallow well or cistern using a foot valve (A). In this diagram we use the RPS Solar Transfer Pump. Water is banked in an elevated storage tank (B) and a tank full sensor prevents overflow while also shutting down the pump once the tank is full. The storage tank is elevated at least 100 feet so it can provide pressurized water with gravity at 45 psi 24 hours a day for household/drinking and irrigation applications (C). Don’t have usable elevation on your property, incorporate the popular Tankless Pressure Pump™ to pressurize water 24/7.
