WBS SOLAR PUMP NEWS--Australia's Best-selling Pump
What are the different types of solar water pumps?
There are several different types of solar-powered pumps depending on how they have been classified. But primarily there are four types of solar water pumps-submersible pumps and surface pumps, direct current (DC) pumps and alternate current (AC) pumps.
Submersible Solar pump
Submersible pumps: As the name suggests, a submersible pump is located deep below the ground level and remains submerged under water. The suction head of the submersible pump is beyond a depth of 10 metres. The installation of these pumps is done by digging a borewell, which leads to an increase in its installation and maintenance cost.
Surface Solar pump
Surface pumps: The surface pumps remains out of water and in the open. They are installed where the water table is within a depth of 10 metres. As they need to be on the surface, these pumps are easier to install and maintain. They are, however, not apt for deep water table.
