SunSmart Solar Power 'Off-Grid' Pool Pumps

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

Your filtration pump is one of the most costly household electrical appliances to run. Depending on the size of your pool, to run a standard 1.5HP 240 volt AC pump costs 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 pool pumps take your pool pump ‘off the grid’ and will save you more in energy costs than a 3 to 4 KW solar energy system.

This is achieved by the SunSmart solar power pool pump system utilising high efficiency brushless DC (Direct Current) motor technology. Furthermore, the SunSmart DC motors use 3 phase circuitry, which means they are the most efficient DC motor in the marketplace and only require a few panels to drive them.  If you attempted to run your existing AC pump from solar panels, you would need to install 16 solar panels to drive it. The SunSmart 500 can do the job with just three or four solar panels. 

Brushless DC (Direct Current) motors are almost 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. Because there are no brushes required to make the electrical contacts, a brushless DC motor will outlast its AC equivalent by 2 to 3 times.

SunSmart solar power pool pumps are Australian designed and manufactured to SunSmart's proprietary high quality Australian standards for Australian conditions. Be wary of lookalikes that are popping up... they are very different inside and do not offer decent warranties.  If it isn't SunSmart, it is just another cheap copy.

Solar Power Pool Pump


There are four models to choose from to cater for all size pools and all situations. The SunSmart 200, the SunSmart 500, the SunSmart 900 and the SunSmart 1200.  The SunSmart 200 is great for plunge pools or spas, the SunSmart 500 will cater for pools up to 70,000 litres. Electricity is supplied directly by three to four 250 watt panels (750 to 1000 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 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.
