Finally, a Solar Sump Pump Built for high Volume Draining and Dewatering!

Put the Sun to Work pumping large volumes of water at low heads with the Sump300 and Sump600. The Sump300 (12v) is a small solar-first pump that runs efficiently off small arrays for draining and dewatering at high GPM. The Sump600 is its 24v big brother. They will run all day on solar alone, or add the '+24hr' package which includes a controller and battery hookup and tank float for shut-off. This allows for use with standard sump pump operation, sun or not. 

The controller stabilizes the voltage to charge battery(or batteries) and power your Sump pump. During the day, the sun charges the batteries so they can provide power at night or early/late in the day for draining. 

This is not the pump for high head or pressure, and is the best fit for under 20ft of vertical lift. This is a new product so exact GPM from field tests are still to come. 6 month warranty on all components. 

Regular Kits include:

  • Mono-crystalline solar panels (three or six depending on kit)
  • 12V DC brushless solar surface pump with built-in controller, 1.5” FNPT outlet and inlet
  • Wire to MC4s to connect solar panels (10 ft)
  • Parallel splice connectors (depending on kit)
  • Installation Manual with step-by-step instructions

+24hr add-on includes:

  • Solar charge controller (supports 12V systems)
  • Wire from solar charge controller to alligator battery clamps
  • Wire/connectors to connect pump to controller 
  • Float switch with MC4 prewired to cutoff at pressure or at tank full/empty


Batteries:

If adding +24hr add-on, you will need to add batteries to this system. Batteries must be deep-cycle batteries, not standard car batteries. Deep-cycle batteries are designed to take much lower continual discharges than regular car batteries and are usually sold as “marine” or “RV batteries.” Deep-cycle batteries normally have an “amp hour” rating shown as Ah (e.g., 100 Ah). Generally deep-cycle batteries are sold in 6 and 12 volt varieties. RPS customers tend to opt for 12V AGM batteries as they are great ‘bang for the buck’ and simple to wire. 100 Ah is a popular size; Group 27 is also a good alternative, which is around 90 Ah.

Wiring Batteries: For 12V systems, batteries must be connected in parallel to keep the voltage at 12V. If using 6V batteries, put two 6V batteries in series to make 12V. For the 24v system, you'll need to wire two 12V batteries in series (or four 6V batteries) to achieve the desired 24V.
