Dankoff Solar Slowpump

Price on request:

The Dankoff Solar Slowpump was the world’s first commercially available low power solar pump. It was developed by Windy Dankoff in 1983, in response to those who said “that’s impossible”. Thousands of Slowpumps have been installed worldwide by farmers, homeowners, missionaries, health workers, and government agencies. Some of our oldest Slowpumps are still in daily service.

 

Description

Slowpump is not submersible but can draw water from shallow wells, springs, cisterns, tanks, ponds, rivers and streams, and push it as high as 137m vertically and through kilometers of pipeline. Slow pumping minimizes the size and cost of the solar array, wire and piping.

Slowpump is less expensive than submersible DC pumps and made in a much wider range of sizes. Wearing parts typically lasts 5 to 10 years. Overall life expectancy is 15 to 20 years.
