How a solar water pump system works

A solar water pump system is easy to install and work on the power of the sun. This makes it the most cost effective way to pump water on your farm. This is how the system works:

Solar Panels are made up of photovoltaic (PV) cells. These cells convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity throughout the day when the sun shines.

The Control Box is the brains of the systems and makes everything work… this includes monitoring water levels in the well and water tank and switching the pump on and off. This ensures the pump only pumps water when needed.

Water Pump. The submersible pump goes into the borehole and pumps water to the water tank. The type of system you install will depend on how much water you need, the ground level, the water level etc. To find out which system will work for you contact us.

  1. I would like to get your advice on what to buy first. I am intending to drill a borehole net year.
    I want to know what i could buy first during the course of the year then buy the equipment that would require the yield and depth of the borehole lastly.

  2. Please send me a quotation for the supply and fitting of a solar power system to reticulate water from a reservoir for a distance of 10km at a rate of minimum 3 cubic meters per hour.
