Solar surface pumps
Solar surface pumps by Grekkon Limited are designed to pump water from shallow wells, rivers, lakes, ponds and shallow water reservoirs. These pumps are ideal in off-grid locations and helpful too in the management of electricity costs resulting from water pumping. Grekkon Limited solar surface pumps are meant to pump water from depths not exceeding 10M or 33 feet. They are used for agricultural irrigation on small sized farms, or for domestic use at home.
Each pump has a head of 12M or 1.2bar which makes it a low pressure pump. ( ‘Head’ is a description of how how the pump pushes up the water vertically at maximum power. It is a measure of pressure.) Under clear skies, users receive 3,000 litres per or 3 cubic meters of water per hour. The average pumping time is 6 hours, so on a sunny day, users have about 18,000 litres or 18 cubic meters of water per day. These pumps have an option of direct current (DC) which is what they work with when solar powered or alternating current (AC), which allows use of electricity. Grekkon Limited supplies and also installs solar surface pumps across east Africa.
