Submersible Solar Water Pumps
Submersible solar water pumps for irrigation water supply are available in a wide variety of water flow rates, from shallow well to deep borehole models. As one of the biggest solar pump dealers in Kenya, our submersible solar-powered water pumps serve every water pumping system. Each is a volume water pump.
What to consider in solar water pumps for irrigation
- Power rating.
Each borehole solar water pump has a power rating provided in watts and this determines the number of solar panels used to power the pump. For example, a pump that has a power rating of 2,700 watts will use 10 solar panels of 270 watts each.
This is the pressure rating provided in meters. It is a measure of how high the solar pump pushes up a given volume of water vertically at various depths. Your solar pump for irrigation will have the head indicated as the minimum to maximum range, and tied to a specific water volume discharge rate. For example 5 cubic liters per hour at 50M to 1.2 cubic liters per hour at 250M. This will be illustrated on the label as 5M3– 1.2M3| 50M-250M.
- Flow rate or discharge rate
This is the volume of water the solar water pump evacuates at a given pressure. A range is provided for this as illustrated in (2) above. The larger the submersible solar water pump, the greater the discharge rate. For any given solar-powered water pump, there is an inverse relationship between the discharge rate and the depth or height of pumping. The volume of water discharged decreases for every increase in pumping depth or height.
Solar-powered pumps FAQs
The solar water pump price depends on the features listed above; power rating, head, and flow rate. It can be a low-cost solar water pump that costs Kes 15,000, and or a borehole solar water pump as much as Kes 1,500,000. Solar pump prices are varied according to this.
Our price is Kes 33 per watt
A direct current water pump is one which uses a direct current from a solar panel or battery to move irrigation water.
Yes our shallow well solar water pumps are portable
Not all. Some of our submersible solar water pumps are high volume high pressure water pumps. They have a low water flow rate. Most are high volume high pressure pumps with a high water flow rate.
Solar energy from the sun is received in the panels. This energy is as a direct current is fed to the motor o pump out the water.
No they don’t, unless powered by an external battery.
Submersible Solar Water Pumps; Service Provision
We provide submersible solar-powered water pumps, clients, with an easy to read, graphic illustration of the relationship between pressure and flow rate for all solar pumps for irrigation that we install.
To determine an appropriate submersible solar water pump for a client, the following information will be provided.
- Depth of the well or borehole
- The water level in the well or borehole
- Water requirement or use per day
This way, the correct solar submersible water pump for agriculture is easily determined.
