With a vs pump you can likely keep your power draw to less that 500w for much of the run time so you would be covered and then some using even a small solar pv setup.
Can i use a solar panel to run my pool pump.
You have 2 options for powering your pool pump with solar electricity.
You would need to build approximately 1200w worth of solar panels about 6 panels just to handle the power consumption of the pump during sunlight hours.
You can then take the credits etc and feel good about running the pool pump.
It sounds like your current pool pump operates using ac power which can be configured with solar panels batteries charge controller and inverter but this arrangement will tend to be less efficient than a dc solar pool pump which can be found in our solar pool section.
The solar panels are wired directly in to the pool pump via some power electronics and when the sun is shining your pool pump will run.
You can buy a dc pool pump and dedicate 4 6 solar panels to powering it.
I added 1 more solar panel now i can run the pump at higher speeds for free.
There was just enuf info for him to abandon solar.
Sunray solar pool pumps can power your pool water filter system for free using the energy of the sun operates with zero electrical costs and is virtually maintenance free.
Pool filtration the water in a family swimming pool must be completely filtered or turned over once every 24 hours.
Installing solar panels to run your pool pump is not only an investment that can pay you back many times over but a way to reduce your carbon footprint and environmental impact.
One problem with pumps however is starting amperage of the motor.
1 take your pool pump off grid.
Adaptors are sometimes necessary.
The pump house is at the far end of the pool.
4 120 watt panels running a hayward ecostar pump.
You don t need to pump 24 7 to keep your pool water in good condition as you can see from this pool.
You ll need to look at that.
Solar collector panels are available at most pool supply stores.
A high volume dc solar pump can run solar panel direct during daylight hours to keep your pool in good condition with no energy expense.
Ok as far as running the pump just do a grid tie enough to offset the pump.
This poser i mean poster only lasted 2 weeks and poof.
You are right sir.
In this way you can adjust how much heat is going into your pool.
Your 1 5hp pump will draw about 1100w when it is running.
If that pump can be replaced with one that doesn t require electricity from the grid the pool owner can use that savings to pay for the cost of a solar powered pool pump.
Without knowing the specifics of the pool pump a pump requiring 328 watts per hour will require 7872 watts for a 24 hour period.
Here are some ways to run the system for best results.
