Our application for the solar pump is a bit different than most. The solar pump was installed to maintain the water level in a lake. Prior to the solar pump, water was pumped into the lake from a 40 hp turbine pump located close to the lake. The well was already in service for irrigation with the turbine pump. We lifted the turbine pump up and lowered the 3 hp solar submersible down along the side of the 8" turbine pump discharge pipe. The well casing is 16", the turbine pipe is 8", and the submersible solar pump is 4". We moved the turbine pump off center about 2" to better accommodate the solar pump. Both pumps are able to work simultaneously. It is too early to tell if the solar pump will be adequate for maintaining the lake levels but it works great. The discharge nozzle breaks the water into meany sprays which helps oxygenate the water.
We are up and running. It’s super dry here and our goal is to fill up a man made 1.5 acre pond that has been dry for 3 years. Super simple to set up and we are very happy with the product!
Wife and I went over this morning, it was fifteen degrees below zero. We got ten inches of snow on the ground in Illinois. Day was out clear skies. We went on our morning with a cup of coffee and watched to pump water fifteen ft below. So, yeah, everything's working fine
