Solar Water Pumps: Dimensions, Applications and Benefits

Solar Water Pumps: Dimensions, Applications and Benefits

Summary

Solar water pumps use electricity generated by the sun to pump water. Common applications include livestock water, crop irrigation, drinking water, and cooking water.

Solar Water Pump Application

During the hot months and hot regions, the demand for water is high. Private households and farms need a stable and continuous water supply. Solar water pumps are electric pumping systems powered by photovoltaic panels. Solar water pumps use the electricity generated to pump water. Depending on the needs of each individual, solar water pumps can be used for the following applications that require pumping:

Livestock water

Crop irrigation water

Drinking and cooking water supplies

Pump Size

Correct sizing of pumps and controls is important as water supply or harvesting may depend on a constant water supply. The solar water pump needs to be sized based on the location and use of the system.

What Components Are Used in the Installation of Solar Water Pumps?

A solar water pump installation is a fairly basic system, usually consisting of a water pump (submersible or surface pump), solar panels, and piping. Most solar water pump systems do not use batteries.

The Choice of Solar Water Pump

You should know that different pumps are used for different applications: usually, the water level will determine which pump to use. Different types of pumps can be selected for use in streams, wells, or ponds. We can divide water pumps into two types:

1. Submersible pumps can be used to pump water from depths up to 700 feet.

2. Surface water pumps can be used to pump surface water to a depth of 10-20 feet.

Choose a Solar Panel

The best way to choose the right ingredients is to look at how much water you need each day. Depending on how many gallons or liters you need per day, you can choose the right water pump and see how much total power your solar panel needs to generate. The pump manufacturer will provide information on the wattage required to produce the desired flow of water. 

After choosing the size and type of solar pump, use the available information to calculate the wattage of the solar panel. To increase pumping volume and time, solar panels can be mounted on the tracker. Yield can be increased by up to 30% with the use of solar trackers.

Should I Use Batteries?

Water pumps do not necessarily need batteries. To save costs, most solar water pumps can run directly from solar panels. The electricity used to run the water pump is not stored in the battery, but the water is stored in a tank or pond. This way the water is stored and can be used at any time.

The Benefits of Solar Water Pumps

Solar water pump installations are versatile and can be used in a variety of applications: it enables people to manage their drinking water supply, livestock watering, irrigation, and other residential applications. Usually, the need for water is greatest on hot, sunny days. During these peak times, the photovoltaic panels will also generate the most electricity, and most of the water will be pumped into the storage tank. Due to the simplicity of the solar water pump system, the technology is reliable and requires little maintenance. If you need to buy a solar water pump, welcome to contact us.
