Solar Power Pool Pump

Solar Power 'Off-Grid' Pool Pumps


Take your pool pump 'off-the-grid' and save from 10 to 20 kilowatt hours of electricity a day!!

Your filtration pump is one of the most costly household electrical appliances to run, and depending on the size of your pool, to run a 1.5HP 240 volt AC pump can cost anywhere from $1000 to $2000 in electricity every year. This also means you are contributing in the vicinity of 6 tons of greenhouse emissions each year.

SunSmart solar power pumps give you an ‘off the grid’ opportunity that will save more in energy costs than installing a 3 or 4 KW solar energy system. The SunSmart solar power pool pump system utilises high efficiency brushless DC (Direct Current) motor technology. Furthermore, the DC motors use 3 phase circuitry, which means they are the most efficient DC motor available.


Solar Power Pool PumpBrushless 3 phase DC motors are close to twice as efficient as AC (Alternating Current) motors, which means that the job of filtering with DC power can be achieved with a much smaller motor, which means fewer panels, which means lower cost. Furthermore, a brushless DC motor will outlast its AC equivalent by 2 to 3 times.

We have a large range of solar power pool pumps to choose from, starting with the SunSmart 48 volt DC model. Electricity is supplied directly by three to four 200 watt panels (600 to 800 watts). The power is managed by a specially designed controller that utilises MPPT technology. There are no inverters, just straight DC current from the panels directly to the solar power pool pump via the controller, which means losses are minimal. The system is so efficient that it will continue to run even on partially cloudy days.SunSmart 1200 Solar Power Pool Pump
