The Different Components of A Solar Water Pump System

Solar water pump systems can be very beneficial when used in agricultural, irrigation, domestic, and industrial settings. This is a clean way to pump water and increase production and efficiency for farms and other agricultural uses. We have talked about the different benefits that solar pumping systems can offer in a variety of settings. We have also talked about how solar has improved over the years and why now is the best time to invest in this power source. 

When it comes to buying solar, there may be a lot you do not know. You may not know how to even begin your investment in solar or what parts you need. While we have been busy giving you all of the information you need about solar and the benefits, we have not talked about the different components of solar water pump systems, what they do, and why you need them to running your solar pump. 

At Advanced Power, we can provide you with everything you need to add solar to your farm, home, or business. We offer complete solar pump systems, solar pumps, controllers, and accessories to help you get your solar water pump fully equipped and ready to use. We can even create custom pumps and equipment for your specific needs. 

While we have all of the equipment you need, we realize you may not know why you need it. That is why we are going to talk about the different components of a solar water sump system and why they matter to the system as a whole. Read on to learn more about the basic components of a solar water pump system. 


Solar Photovoltaic System

The solar panels used in our solar water pump systems produce electricity by using the photovoltaic effect. These solar panels absorb the sun’s photons and convert them into energy. This is the main component of a solar water pump system. A group of solar panels is called an array. At Advanced Power, we create all of our own photovoltaic solar panels with durable material that will allow our solar panels to last for years to come. Most of our solar panels comes with mounting poles as well. While this is the component of the solar pump system that actually creates the electricity, there are many other important components of the water pump system. 

Water Pumps

The water pump is another part of the solar water pump system that is extremely important. Without the pump, you wouldn’t have a water pump system! The pump is the piece of equipment that draws water from the source to be used for different applications. Water can be drawn from a well, pond, or other sources and used to help with agriculture, irrigation, and other settings. Advanced Power offers our pumps in both AC and DC power. You can find submersible pumps, circulation pumps, booster pumps, and sump pumps in our collection of solar water pumps. Submersible pumps can lift water from great depths. We can help you find the right water pump for your needs and application.


When you invest in a solar water pump system, an inverter is another important component. Inverters are used to convert direct currents (DC) output into an alternating current (AC), which can be used to power electrical grids and off-grid electrical networks. This conversion is necessary for many electrical devices, including the water pumps, making inverters an important part of the solar pump system. The inverter from Advanced Power is a great source of backup power when you need it. If you find yourself struggling through cloudy or low-light days, an inverter can help to keep your water pump running, even without solar.



Solar pump systems are important in maximizing pump performance. Controllers can be used to essentially control the water pump. Advanced Power offers a variety of controllers that can help your water pump run more efficiently. Controllers can be used to set a pumping schedule, turn the pump on or off, and help maximize the life of your pump. If you are pumping from a well or water source that often faces low water levels or dry situations, we offer controllers with water sensors, which will turn off the pup when water is low. This allows wells or water sources to replenish before the pump starts up again. Controllers can help make your pumps more efficient and perform better.

These are the main components of a solar water pump system, but not the only parts that can make your system more efficient! At Advanced Power, we offer a variety of solar pump accessories that could help further your water pump’s performance. Hopefully, this blog helped you understand the different solar water pump components. When you choose to install a solar water pump system to your business, home, or farm, you want to make sure you have all of the best equipment and components. We can provide you with everything you need to get started and have a solar water pump that is super efficient. 

If you still have questions, please feel free to contact our solar pump experts. We will be able to give you more information and help determine the products you need for your water pump application. If you need a custom solar water pump system made for your unique needs, we will be able to handle that project for you and provide you with the high-quality solar pump you need.
