Pumps that work with solar panels are the same as every other pump. There is, however, a difference in the source of power. The installation of the solar pumping system is different for every type of kit.
- In general, the first step of installing a solar water pump is setting up the solar panel mounting and solar panels facing towards the sun. Make sure there is no shadow during the day on the solar panels.
- The next step is mounting the water pump to the water installation (water piping), and placing it stable underwater. Make sure, that nothing limits the water flow into the pump because it would reduce the pump’s power. All running pumps that do not have a suction nozzle need to always be underwater because pumping the air can damage the pump.
- The last step is connecting all of the electrical connections.
