The Solaram is Dankoff's most powerful surface pump. They can draw water from a shallow well, pond, stream, river or storage tank. They can push water very high up-hill (960' maximum head), through miles of pipeline, or for pressurized water systems (415 psi max; minimum 60 gal. pressure tank required). Suction capacity is 20' at sea level (subtract 1' for each 1000' above sea level). With 2.5-9 gpm of pumping capacity, Solaram pumps can supply up to 5,400 gallons per day (GPD), while using less power than any other pump in its range. They start pumping even in low light conditions.
These pumps are rugged and reliable, as well as dirt and dry-run tolerant. They feature multiple-diaphragm industrial construction, a cast aluminum body and massive ball bearings, and Permanent Magnet (PM) motors. They do require preventive maintenance every 2 years (based on full year-round use), consisting of oil changes (non-toxic oil) and diaphragm replacement, but have a 20-year life expectancy. A pressure relief valve is included.
