When there is no water in the well, will solar pump automatically stop working?

Yes. SOLAR PUMP has Intelligent water shortage protection function. The pump stops working automatically when there is no water in the well, and automatically start working 30 minutes later. The whole process does not require manual operation and is completed automatically.

Can I use the existing cable on my AC pump to power the solar pump?

The solar pumps use a 4 core or 3 core cable and needs to be sized correctly based on the size of the solar pump required as well as the total cable distance. This is to ensure that the pumps performance does not get affected by volt drop over the cable distance. As long as the diameter requirements are met, the existing cables on the AC pump can also be used for solar pumps.

Which is better, DC pump or AC pump?

The DC pump can directly use the DC power generated by the solar panel to run the water pump. Reduce the power loss in the conversion process. Therefore, the DC pump is more efficient and requires fewer solar panels. The DC pump also does not require an inverter to convert the direct current generated by the solar panel into alternating current. Reduced costs.

Will a solar pump stop pumping once the tank is full?

Solar pumping systems utilize a controller that among other things will accept the input from a float switch in your tank which tells the pump when to start and stop. We will give you a float switch in our accessories. Some of the other functions of pump controllers are low water cut-off, lightning protection and load matching through the use of maximum power point tracking from the solar array.

Do I need batteries to operate an solar pump system?

No. All of solar pump systems are designed to operate with direct solar. However, they can be operated via batteries if needed for on-demand use.

How do I determine the amount of panels needed for my solar pump?

The easiest way to determine this is to add 30% on top of the pump wattage for minimum requirements and recommended would be 50%. I.e. a 500w pump requires minimum 650w and recommended 750w to operate. When configuring and connecting solar panels, you also need to check the maximum working voltage and optimal working voltage range of the pump. The open circuit voltage of the solar panel should not exceed the maximum voltage range of the water pump. The working voltage of the solar panel is best within the optimum working voltage range of the water pump.

Can I use the generator to make the pump work on rainy days?

The solar pump can operate on both AC and DC power inputs. During periods without sunlight, such as nights or rainy days, you have the flexibility to power the pump using commercial electricity or generators.

Can AC/DC hybrid solar pumps be used in countries with 110v voltage?

We've created an innovative hybrid solar pump with a versatile AC input voltage range of 72V to 280V. This means it can be used in countries with varying voltages, including 110V and 220V systems.

Can the speed of the pump be adjusted?

Yes, the controllers come standard with a speed adjustment dial whereby you can reduce the speed of the motor if needed.

How long do the solar pump systems last?

The solar panel comes with a 25-year power output warranty and causes very few issues. It has no moving parts that can wear out. The brushless motor pumps have a 20,000-hour rating for their motors. The longevity of the pumps depends significantly on water quality and correct installation. Placing the pumps in sandy or dirty wells will inevitably lead to premature wear.

Can I use solar pump for salt water applications?

Solar water pumps are typically suitable for use with freshwater or slightly saline water. However, they may not be suitable for highly saline water or seawater environments, as high salinity can have adverse effects on the pump's components and materials, reducing its lifespan.

If you plan to use a solar water pump in a saline water environment, it is advisable to choose a pump specifically designed for saline water applications or take additional protective measures to extend the pump's lifespan. This may include using corrosion-resistant materials and regularly flushing pump components to remove salt buildup. When selecting and installing a solar water pump, it is best to consult with professionals to ensure it is suitable for your specific application needs and water source conditions.

How far can I install the solar panels from the pump?

The solar pumps we utilize operate on low voltage, and extending the cable over long distances can negatively impact their performance. To mitigate voltage drop, it is advisable to use thicker cables. We recommend avoiding cable extensions of more than 100-120 meters, taking into account the pump's size and voltage.

Can I use a solar pump to pressurize a tank for domestic use?

You have the option to augment the power supplied to the controller, but it's crucial to ensure that the voltage input stays within specified limits. This boost in power won't enhance the peak flow rate; instead, it will enable the pump to operate more efficiently during early mornings, late afternoons, and even on cloudy days.

Can I use solar or wind power to keep my stock tank from freezing?

That depends on how cold it gets at your site, if your tank is insulated/bermed and how you plan to keep your tank from freezing. Heating elements consume a lot of power to keep water from freezing which would require a large and expensive solar array to operate. There are bubbler system on the market that simply circulate the warmer water from the bottom to the top of the tank and those are much more efficient than a heating element. In very cold climates it is best to install a cover on your tank that leaves only a small portion of the water exposed and then berm your tank all the way around and on top of the cover. There are other more expensive and complicated methods of taping into the warm earth temperatures below the tank as well as insulating the tank and only providing water to the livestock when they come to the tank to drink.

Is it possible to extract water from a well using a surface pump?

Yes. but, the maximum suction range of the surface solar pump is 8 meters. you can’t pull water out a well where the static water level is lower than 8 Meters.

What is the cost-effectiveness comparison between solar water pumps and diesel pumps?

While the initial purchase cost of solar water pumps is higher than that of diesel pumps, it's essential to consider the long-term perspective. Solar photovoltaic panels have a lifespan of up to 20 years, and solar water pumps require minimal maintenance or even operate maintenance-free, incurring virtually no additional costs down the line. When evaluating comprehensively, solar water pumps often prove to be a cost-saving choice.
