Manufacturing durable solar thermal pumps using magnetic drive technology. March produces an excellent solution for solar pumping with no additional costs other than upfront solar electric system - and occasional maintenance. Why pay for energy when you can get it free from the sun? As solar energy emerges as a primary source of energy – so to, the need for energy efficient solutions across the board. Solar has always been a popular way to power water pumps because of its extreme ease of installation and efficiency, especially in remote locations. March Pumps are an industry standard for use with solar thermal heat systems, irrigation systems, ponds, fountains, water wells, and for livestock ponds where conventional electricity is not readily available. If water is only needed during sunny conditions, March Pumps can work without a battery backup system on solar panels alone. However, if the pump is needed during overcast days or evenings and nights, then a battery system can power these pumps also. Pumps for solar systems are efficient and practical for many uses. March Pumps use magnetic drive technology which is durable and rugged for use with solar equipment. Available as a brush type motor for both 12Volt and 24Volt. These pumps are prefect because the solar pump will not suffer damage if the starting voltage is below what the pump is rated for. The speed of these pumps, and consequently the flow and head, can be altered by changing the incoming voltage. They produce best when the weather is sunny, but with the use of battery backup, a solar pump provides water in all conditions.
