Solar Water Pumping

Solar water pumping systems can be a practical and inexpensive solution used to supply water supplies that are reliable and cost effective in which there is no grid power or where electricity supply is unreliable.

The advantages of the systems include: Easily relocated to meet with seasonal or variable place needs because solar systems only operate during daylight hours that the water pumped out is generally stored in a storage tank to ensure constant availability of water.

The tank capacity should be designed to permit for rainy or cloudy days (no sun days) when draining will be restricted. Dimensions and the dimensions of the storage tank is determined depending on the number of day's storage.

When large storage tanks are impractical, back up a generator or batteries can also be integrated in the layout to permit for prolonged periods of sunlight days that will eventually drain the water storage tank. Upkeep and require support Powered by clean, renewable energy compared to the cost of diesel-powered generators and grid electricity that's constantly increasing.

Everywhere the sun shines operates. System productivity increases in summer if water demand is greater.

Conceivable applications include:

  • Domesticated animals – steers watering and fish cultivating
  • Horticulture – water system or yield watering
  • Recreational – swimming pool circulation siphons; spa
  • Private – water supply for drinking or weight boosting
  • Mechanical – water supply for organizations

Getting the maximum benefit from solar water pumping systems requires design and research and a pump is purchased and installed. Each component has to be carefully coordinated, and proper planning is necessary: so the final system will be dependable and efficient and can function for several years to come.

Groundwater Engineering's team has extensive experience in solar PV and solar water pumping systems and we can provide a comprehensive design and installation support to satisfy client requirements. Alternately, in which the pump itself can be located no more than 6 meters above the water level surface pumps are used to move water from sources such as tanks, ponds, streams, and wells.

There are various kinds of pump accessible; the selection will depend on how much water daily needs to be transferred and the height and distance to the shipping stage (like the storage tank).

Reliability and pump efficiency can be made better if suction lift can be shrunk into only a few meters. Pumping could be by submersible pumps, normally employed for mold spores, in which surface pumps cannot be used since the water level is too deep under ground level (under about 6 meters depth).

These borehole pumps are designed to have a tiny diameter that is outside in order that they attached to an output pipe that extends up into the surface and can be suspended below the water level from the well. The pump for every application will depend on the required pumping speeds and pumping height and distance.
