Recommended Configuration for Motor
The solar-powered Simple Pump is an integrated, standardized system that will provide water at the surface.
What you do after that will vary, depending on your needs. The recommended configuration is to pump into the ambient (i.e. non-pressurized) storage tank of about 200-500 gallon capacity. Then, if you want to charge a pressure tank, a small transfer pump can the water from the ambient tank to the pressure tank.
Since needs for tank volume and pumping capacity will vary greatly, we do not provide the ambient tank or transfer motor.
Tanks: See the range of Bushman drinking water storage tanks, on the bottom of this page:
Such transfer pumps include an integrated pressure sensor. It signals the transfer pump to turn on and off, according to a target pressure. The Simple Pump would then be controlled by a simple float valve in the reservoir tank.
Configuring like this raises the overall reliability of the system. Transfer pumps include an integrated pressure sensor. The sensor signals the booster pump to turns the pump on and off, according to a target pressure, when water is demanded from the pressure tank.
