We offer solar powered water pumps from several manufacturers, including Shurflo, Grundfos, Dankoff, and SunPumps. We also carry a complete line of accessories, hardware, and installation parts and kits.
Solar pumps fall into two main categories: Surface Pumps and Submersible Pumps.
Surface Pump: Designed for pumping from surface water supplies such as springs, ponds, tanks, or shallow wells. The pump is mounted in a dry, weatherproof location less than 10-15 feet above the water surface. Surface pumps cannot be submerged and expected to survive.
Submersible Pump: A pump with a sealed motor assembly designed to be installed below the water surface. Most commonly used when the water level is more than 15 feet below the surface or when the pump must be protected from freezing.
