Aside from the economic and environmental benefits of solar powered water pumps, there are a number of other advantages that make them more attractive than battery or conventionally powered pumps. For instance:
Not all solar pond pumps are created equal, before buying a pump you need to consider your pond needs. For instance, does your pond contain abundant life, or does it serve a more decorative purpose with fountains and sprays? Some solar pumps have a stronger flow than others are, as such, are better suited to ponds with water spouts, while others, with gentler flow, are more suited to ponds with fish, plants and frogs.
Anyone with a swimming pool is familiar with the massive amounts of energy required to keep it sparkling clean. Installing a solar pump instead of a conventional pump will not only take a chunk out of your energy bill, but will also ensure that your pool is kept environmentally clean. As with pond pumps, you need to consider your needs before committing to a solar pool pump.
Solar pumps have a variable flow rate, which is governed largely by the strength and direction of the sun; you need to purchase a pool pump that meets the needs of your pool’s flirtation system. Swimming pool filtration systems that work best with solar pumps are sand and cartridge filters.
