Five reasons to install a Grundfos Solar Powered Pump
A Grundfos solar powered pump is ideal for remote water supply, off-grid living, stock watering, and irrigation. Let’s take a look at the benefits for you and the environment when upgrading your old mains or generator powered pump systems.
1. Virtually no maintenance
Grundfos solar-powered water pumps have a comprehensive range of protection features, and are made from weather resistant materials which means your system will give you years of extremely low maintenance and minimal downtime.
2. Money savings with Solar powered pumps
Grundfos solar-powered water pumps have a comprehensive range of protection features, and are made from weather resistant materials which means your system will give you years of extremely low maintenance and minimal downtime. When compared to a diesel generator powered pump system, solar is up to four times more cost effective over a 10 year period of operation. This means you will save money on your operations and the system can pay for itself in less than three years.
There is no need to purchase for diesel for generators as the system is powered by the sun resulting in fuel cost savings.
3. Time saving
Utilising power from the sun means there is no need to drive around your property to replenish fuel or maintain generators. With remote monitoring you can adjust pump operations in real-time, check operating data, and receive notifications for servicing.
There’s nothing more daunting than having to climb up the windmill to repair a broken rotor blade or replace a gearbox. With a Grundfos solar-powered water pump you can reach all components from the ground meaning your maintenance has less hazards and is therefore safer.
5. Environmentally friendly
Diesel generators produce carbon emissions when in operation. A solar-powered pump system in comparrison, produces no emissons (when in operation), which means the carbon footprint of your installation is reduced.
Regardless of your application the benefits of solar power are unmistakably genuine. Your solar-powered water pump system will have a long service life with very low, safe maintenance and near zero running costs.
