Why Should You Use a Solar Water Pump?

April 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 176

Although nearly two-thirds of the Earth is covered with water, there are many places throughout the planet where this natural resource is not easily accessible. Such is the case for areas that receive very little rainfall or are far from any significant body of water like parched deserts and remote prairies. Groundwater may be naturally abundant in subterranean wells in some of these areas but it often has to be brought to the surface to be of practical use to anyone, whether it's for personal consumption, irrigation of crops, or sustaining livestock. Although pumps have been designed for that very purpose, not everyone can afford the typically complex machinery that can bring usable amounts of water into their homes and farms. Internal combustion engines similar to those used to power cars can also be used to power water pumps, but these are expensive and their exhaust may include traces of harmful carbon monoxide.

If you want to bring free flowing water into your home or farm but not at the expense of the environment, solar water pumps is precisely what you need. Solar water pumps run on solar power which is the oldest and most readily available source of renewable energy. Photovoltaic panels, more popularly known as solar panels, capture radiation from the sun and convert it into electricity which in turn powers a connected motor that actually runs the pump. This process could continue for hours on end, typically as long as the sun is up. The main advantage of using such a pump is you can do away with a complicated and costly combustion engine that requires harmful and expensive fossil fuel and instead resort to a renewable energy source that's not only available for much of the day but also won't cost you a penny.

Humans, animals, and plants need water the most during hot sunny days, and many household and farming activities that involve water are geared towards keeping them alive. It is interesting to note that the sun's radiation that can lead to dehydration in these living beings is the same radiation that, when used to power a solar pump, can keep them hydrated, albeit indirectly. With the sun giving off considerable amounts of radiation in areas where the supply of water is limited, it would be foolish for anyone not to harness this natural energy source, considering its potential in bringing water to where it is badly needed.
