  • Post in thread: Need advice on altering system after financial twist

    I belive the outback may also have a dump load you could also use aux ports to turn pump on when batteries are charged and have excess solar and use something like a atkison gen start dohickie to control pump time. pool timers may have high phantom loads, but not sure about that

    I would second the Grundfos pumps. alot of the SQ models run off of solar dc or AC gen. I was able to pump a 300' well with a 1000 watt honda generator with a sq pump. Most well pumps would laugh at 1000 watt generator. ALso stay away from pressure tanks if you can, best to pump to a water tank...

    SQ flex series looks like the 6 SQF-3 with around 850 watts of solar (directly connected) would soot you best https://www.solar-electric.com/lib/wind-sun/SQFlex_Product_Guide.pdf

    Also the controller box ($900) is not needed but it makes things nice for the ability to connect a float switch. a normal pressure switch will work to turn off pump if using pressure tanks without the controller box.

    my sqf pump has pumped 800 gal everyday for about 6 years, more in summer. couldn't be happier.
  • Post in thread: Need advice on altering system after financial twist

    depends on how much elevation drop 2.3 feet vertical is 1 psi. anything less then 15 psi is miserable but can be done, 30 psi is a good pressure all around. you could always build a stank for the tank to get a few more psi. 20 feet would be around 8.5 psi. more when the tank is full...

    Direct solar around 800 watts no inverter. on a few occasions I have had to use a generator when the sun decides not to show its face for a week. How far is the well from the inverter? My 900 ft from my inverter so made sense to just throw a few panels up down at the well head. Line loss and...
