CLIENT STORY: OFF THE GRID 2
My family and I are *very* pleased with our Simple Pump.
Our land is far off the grid outside of Nevada City, CA. The few neighbors we have are all dependent on gas generators to get their water out of the ground.
Everyone that visits our land at first chuckles about our Simple Pump. After they try pumping it, though, it hits them that we can get water out of the ground *any time* without the need of a generator, photovoltaic system or even an electric pump. We love our Simple Pump.
We purchased the electric motor when we bought the Simple Pump. It's been a little over a year since we installed the Simple Pump and we just haven't seen the need to install the electric motor yet. However, we recently had a septic system installed in anticipation of building a cabin some day and now we need to fill the 1,500g septic tank with water. I've purchased a couple 123W PV panels to drive the motor while the septic tank is filled.
Thanks again and best regards.
