Solar Swimming Pool Pump Considerations
Discussion on the Lorentz PS600 CS17-1 solar powered swimming pool pump
THE LORENTZ PS600 CS17-1 uses environmentally friendly solar-electric (PV) power to pump and circulate water through the filtration system of swimming pools. A conventional pool pump is often one of the largest electrical loads in a home, possibly consuming more electricity than the electric geyser. A solar powered pump is practical and complements seasonal requirements, because the need for filtration is greatest during summer and sunny weather. It also complements pumping through solar heat collectors because the circulation requirement corresponds with solar intensity.
