Installation: The solar panels and their cables are the only parts in these kits that are okay outside. The charge controller, inverter, and hybrid inverter are not IP rated and should be kept away from moisture including condensation.

DoD: Depth of Discharge. Refers to what percentage of the total battery capacity can be used regularly without damaging the battery. For example, with a Lead Acid battery, a 50% voltage reading should be considered 0% power left, and you should stop using power.

Why would I pick solar for a pumping system?

Quite often grid power is not available to every part of your land but you still need water. The most common alternative is a petrol pump which can end up costing a lot more in fuel and time over the long run. Solar pumps can also be a more cost effective solution than a grid powered pump. Because they do not need batteries, these systems are very competitively priced!

What can I use this kit for?

Commonly, solar pumping is used to move water from a dam to a higher up tank. This tank usually feeds a farm or house. 

You can also uses these systems to pump from a tank at the same level as your house to a tank at a higher level. In both cases you are using the power from the sun when it's shining to keep your tank full, and the rest of the time that tank is feeding everything else.

How to choose

Solar Panel Mounts

All solar pump kits come with Z-Bracket mounts as standard. You can also upgrade to one of the following mounting options if they will suit your situation better:

Universal

The Universal Roof Mount allows you to mount your panels flat on any type of roof along a pair of rails. The rails are attached to the roof with L-shaped brackets, and the panels are clamped to the rails, making it much easier to mount four or more panels on your roof.

Corrugated

The Corrugated Iron Roof mount performs similarly to the universal roof mount, but it is a rail-free option that sits in the grooves of corrugated iron. The mounts are secured to the roof and then the panels are clamped onto them directly instead of rails.  

Ground

The Ground mount allows you to mount your panels on the ground along a pair of rails attached to a triangular frame, and the panels are clamped to the rails. The frame is mounted on something secured in the ground, and the angle can only be adjusted during the install.

Tilt

The Tilt mount allows you to mount your panels on a flat/low pitch roof at an angle to maximise solar energy, adjustable by up to 15 degrees after the initial install. The rails are attached to a triangular frame mounted to the roof, and the panels are clamped to the rails.
