Local, clean water sources, with reliable pumps, are essential for the health and well-being of many communities. First of all, there are places where city water supplies are not accessible. For example, this includes remote farmsteads and ranches without grid power. Then there are the areas in developing countries that rely on wells and other underground sources.

A well with a reliable pump is appealing to all kinds of users. Users include aid workers, farmers, preppers, and those that merely want to be as self-sufficient as possible. The question is, what is the best approach to pumping that water? The increasing potential of solar power generators – according to Solar Generator Guide – means that solar has to be the best option. 

In this article about the best off-grid well water pump solutions we will look at the following:

  • Different options available for pumping wells and water sources
  • Reasons why solar powered solutions are more appealing than the alternatives
  • Applications for these solar powered solutions 
  • Selecting the right pump with the correct generator, solar panel set-up, and storage batteries.


2016 New Design And Style Pumps

Concentric AB is a company that is highly regarded by industry leaders across the world. They manufacture high-grade pumping systems at plants across Europe, China, India the US and Argentina. These pumps are then used by top names in construction, mining, and agriculture. The company has been celebrated in the past for its ability to create useful products for numerous benefits. 

These include fuel efficiency, noise reduction, system efficiency, and high power density. They have created products that are highly innovative in the way that they create proprietary systems for flow control and fluid power. This all means that leading companies in the world of mechanics and pumping technology want to hear what Concentric AB have to say. In September 2016, they were treated to an unveiling.

Circulator Pump Design

Circulator pumps are an important part of heavy industry, with many used in heating and cooling systems. Many technicians will be familiar with the old single-speed motors that were found in these closed loop systems. These models are pretty outdated by today’s standards as modern innovations have taken over. We are now seeing a wave of exciting new products with improved capabilities in speed, efficiency, installation methods, programming, and intelligence.

DOE Industrial Pump

DOE Pump Efficiency 

In 2015, The Department of Energy (DOE) issued a series of new standards on energy efficiency for certain pieces of equipment. They were commercial air conditioners and pumps. The primary aim here is to save energy, and money, through new regulations on the parts used. This is the first set of national efficiency standards ever to be published for pumping technology. This means that there are some high hopes for the outcome.

Pump Industry Awards

The Pump Industry Awards are a big event in the calendar of all manufacturers and users of heavy industry pumping technology. Designers, project managers, and other leading figures all want to be recognized for their advancements. The awards are designed to highlight companies that go further to create something with an actual, lasting benefit. This could be a new product that changes perceptions or a project that helps communities or the environment. The following three winners from 2016 are three worthy recipients with very different projects. They have taken modern ideas and applied them to critical needs in the current climate.
