PUMPMAKERS: Remote Water Supply System

This rural water pump is an ideal water supply system for water well construction / drilling anywhere on earth (see Solar Energy Map). Specifically for:

  • Charity Help Relief Aid Organizations and Associations, Sustainable Development Aid, Water Supply in  Remote and Rural Areas
  • Companies - Resale, Distribution, Construction of the system  
  • Private Persons - Water supplies, Irrigation- Desalination Plants

...who want to become independent of an electric supply, save costs and enhance value & quality with a future-oriented approach!

With the power of the sun into a better future!

Function / Purpose

Photovoltaic panels produce energy which is transformed by a brushless electric motor (without a battery). The electric motor drives a gear which causes a winder to rotate; this winder is connected to the pumping lever and causes it to move up-and-down. Above the well floor is the pump piston. Through the up-and-down movement the water is pumped to the surface.

Applications / Uses

The DIY Solar Pump has been designed specifically to provide a constant and sufficient water supply in remote and rural regions. These water supplies can be drinking water supplies, irrigation or salt water processing. The plant can be set-up inexpensively and with standard tools.

Quality

The focus in the construction of our plants is on high quality. We only use wear-free materials, and due to using in the pumping area salt water resistant stainless steel, the pump does not suffer from corrosion or wear and tear. This means our pumping stations can also be used in regions in vicinity to the sea or saliniferous regions for water supply, or in desalination plants.

Output

The pump piston pumps the water to the surface and produces the delivery rate. The delivery rate depends on the well depth and the water level. 
Depending on well depth and delivery rate, different pump pistons can be used. Our company offers standard products as well as individual solutions tailored to your specific requirements, to get the maximum delivery rate out of your water well.

Maintenance-free

We pay particular attention to the choice of materials used in the construction and set-up of our solar well pumps to prevent wear and tear and the need for maintenance. We use quality parts, special sealing solutions and lifetime lubrication, so that our solar well pumps can withstand the local conditions and work efficiently in remote / rural areas.

Amortisation (time until cost-savings equal pump purchase price)

The amortisation of the DIY Solar Pump is achieved within a very small period of time – within less than 2 years in most cases.

EXAMPLE: Underwater pump with power generator

The required amount of diesel or petrol for a water well pump driven by a power generator is about 20 to 30 litres per day.
If you calculate EUR 1 per litre fuel, assuming a minimum consumption of 20 litres, this adds up to:
 

Fuel Costs Time
20 litres 20 EUR daily
600 litres 600 EUR monthly
7.200 litres 7.200 EUR annually fuel costs

EXAMPLE: Hand Pump

Hand pumps are used effectively up to a delivery height of about 50 metres. This delivery height produces a delivery rate of less than 10 litres of water per minute in most cases, however. In comparison, the DIY Solar Pump provides 3 to 15 times more output with the same delivery height (depending on model).
