RPS designs and manufactures products for people that appreciate quality. Based in California and championed by Elsa, the Icelandic Shepherd, our mission has been to make solar well pumping systems simple and affordable to install, without sacrificing quality and reliability. As aerospace and mechanical engineers, we designed each system to the highest standards - building the most feature-rich, reliable and powerful solar well pump kit in the industry - then backing them with real live USA based engineering support and comprehensive warranties. In 2016 RPS became the #1 DIY solar well pump kit in America thanks to customers all over the USA!

We love solar. We use these systems ourselves. We hope our passion for solar well pumps is contagious. Give us a call today!

Before RPS, upgrading to solar powered pumping required you to...
#1 - Pay top dollar for a Contractor to buy and install everything for you
#2 - Piecemeal a system together on your own with components found online

Most people are looking for a way to avoid the high cost of #1 but want to avoid #2. RPS provides a happy medium between the two. DIY+RPS. A combination of your do-it-yourself skills and tools with RPS quality parts and RPS engineers on the phone, text and email to back you up - a teammate in your solar pump planning and installation. Saving your time and your money is what we do at RPS..


"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."
Frank S, Winter 2014


"I could not find a better price online for a system of similar performance. Not sure how they do it, but they do!"
Greg K, Spring 2015


"I purchased over a year ago and everything has been working as expected. No issues, no regrets."
Fred J, Winter 2013


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

Compare RPS with the Competition

RPS is for people that appreciate quality. For people that don't want to leave their home or cattle without water. For people that don't want to haul up and replace their well pumps every 6 months. For people that like to trust in their equipment - in steel not plastic. As more and more manufacturers are cutting corners, RPS remains rock solid. Designed to aerospace standards with food grade stainless. Quality you can trust for years and years to come.

Unlike other systems, with RPS Kits if the sun isn't shining, you can just flip a switch and power the pump with 12v batteries.

Bulletproof Reliability

Design, Quality Control, Testing and Final Processing in USA. Assembly in China near John Deere factory. We inspect and test all of the systems to our US manufacturing standards. This combination allows us to save you money with the lowest prices, yet with USA quality and reliability.


Lowest Cost and Best Value. Best 'Cost-to-GPD (Gallons Per Day) ratio in the industry!

Better Value

Beware of 'Pump & Panel' kits. They are far less efficient and without safeguards for pumping dry, the ability to control pump rate or to add a 12v battery backup system.

Unmatched Engineered

Rock solid, space-worthy designs by our Aerospace Engineer founder - all pumps, controllers and panels. Watch out for kits with a mishmash of components from other manufacturers.


Designed to last a lifetime. Spare impeller adds thousands pumping hours. Guaranteed 85% power output of Solar Cells even after 25 years.


Unrivaled efficiency. Compared to grid-tied counterparts, RPS kits have the fastest payback period of any pump in the world.

Bonus Charge Controller

The RPS Optimizer doubles as a solar charge controller for a battery bank. Some customers like to have battery backup on hand and with the RPS kit, you'll be able to keep them topped off automatically!

Peace of Mind

100% Money-Back Guarantee and Comprehensive 2 Year Warranty! This protects your investment from manufacturer defects of any kind.

Longest Lasting

Our brushless pump technology mean long lasting maintenance-free water pumping. Insist on brushless pumps to avoid future replacement and repair costs.

Free Lifetime Phone Support

We love this stuff. If you need anything along the way we will help, though with such reliable pumps, we realize we may never hear from you again! We're friendly. Call anytime.
