Pump Accessories

Even the best solar water pumps wear out over time. We sell an assortment of pump accessories, the most useful of which are float switches. Float switches will automatically turn a pump on and off to keep a storage tank full. Float switches can be used to either pump to or from a storage tank, and will automatically turn the system off when satisfied.

We also offer water pump replacement parts, including pump heads, brushes, filters, valves, O-rings, and wires.

"Q: Will solar pumps run only during direct sunlight?
A: No. While we often run pumping systems directly off solar electric modules without batteries, battery-based systems can be used for around-the-clock pumping."
