Solar pumps are an energy efficient, environmentally friendly way to pump water for a variety of domestic and commercial purposes, including agricultural and residential irrigation and cattle or livestock watering. Solar pumps are easy to install and require virtually no maintenance, and they can have a lifespan of roughly 20 years, so after the initial set up costs their servicing requirements are virtually nil.

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:
- As they don’t rely on electricity or produce dangerous toxins, solar pumps are safe
- Solar power pumps can be used to supply heat to homes and public buildings

Solar water pumps for your pool and more
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.
