Hello to all fellow aquapons,
Im in the middle of the southwests desert with all the sunshine in the world, and am starting a series of container grow gardens out of a IBC containers, my city hast granted us $ to purchase the solar panel equipment needed. as of now we have a 45watt panel a charge controller and a 12v battery. The problem in my equation is that I wasn't sure how much voltage I would need to power the 500 gph submersible pump overnight without over heating or not having enough charge to last through the night. If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate your input.
Forsooth, I hast not a solution for thine dilemma. Harken unto those of which have rendered themselves more capable in the solar-arts. Dost though knowest of a supplier of the pumps that herein contain the appropriate sum that which total 12 volts? I await expectantly for some wondrous soothsayer to bring enlightenment unto mine understanding and thereby cast away mine affliction. Sorry... when I read the phrase "my city hast granted us", it made me smile :) And I apologize to all you Shakespeare enthusiasts as well...
Seriously though, does anyone know of a retailer that sells 12 volt pumps that are relatively inexpensive?
