Solar Well Pump to Storage Tank, Tankless Pressure Pump to Household
Backups to the backups are always a good idea for an off-grid cabin or household system. Pumping to a storage tank (A) with a direct-drive solar pump provides a few extra days of above-ground water. The install shown here uses the solar/battery powered Tankless Pressure Pump™ or TPP (C) to pressurize water from the storage tank, replacing the need for a pressure tank! The TPP has a built in pressure sensor that turns the pump off automatically when faucets are closed, and back on when faucets are opened, adjusting speed as needed to save power. Although this diagram uses a 3’’ well pump (B), if you have a deep well check out our Pro Series Deep line of well pumps.
