“Before purchasing my solar water pump I was using more than 1 liter of gasoline everyday.”
"My solar water pump I only had to pay for once. Now I use the sun everyday and don’t have to pay for fuel. I turn it on in the morning and go do other work."
“I used my solar water pump to irrigate my vegetable plots. Before I had to pay to fill up my fish ponds. Now I use my solar water pump for this purpose as well and save money on both parts of my business.”
Suitable for farmers who are pumping water from shallow wells (up to 7m), rivers, lakes and streams

Comprises of the pump and 2 separate solar panels.
Q: What is the maximum suction depth of the pump and what is the maximum lift?
A: The maximum suction depth is 7 m, similar to most surface piston pumps. The maximum total lift is 15 m. If your suction depth is 7 m you can still lift an additional 8 m on the discharge side. If the suction depth is only 2 m you can push up to 13 m on the discharge side.
Q: What is the maximum horizontal distance the pump can pump over on a fairly flat area?
A: As long as the size of the pipe remains the same, the distance should not be limited. We have experience with a distance of 500 m+. The gradient does play a role here. Bad connections lead to leakage which will reduce the distance. Smaller pipes will increase the back-pressure leading to a shorter distance.
Q: What is the horsepower or discharge rate?
A: In full sun, the 2 x 90 Watt (180W) panels generate power that can pump 3,500 L/hour at 1 m head and 2,500 L/hour at 6 m head.Q:
What is the size of land that can be irrigated with the pump? A: Up to 1 Hectare can be comfortably irrigated with the pump. This is however dependent on climate, soil, gradient, crop type, planting cycles and additional watering methods. In some situations, only a smaller area is possible in others a larger area.
Q: What diameter of pipes can the pump be connected to?
A: The pump functions optimally with a 1.25-inch hose pipe.
Q: Are spare parts available and what is the warranty?
A. We (FuturePump) offer a 10 year warranty with the SF2. In case of proper handling of the pump, any broken parts will be repaired or replaced during this warranty period. We only sell in areas where we are certain we have trained technicians who offer maintenance and have spare parts available.
Q: What is the lifetime of the pump?
A: What is the lifetime of a bicycle? It depends on how you treat it. The solar panel has a lifespan of 10 years. The pump is likely to last 10 to 15 years.3. Solar panel
Q: Can the solar panel that comes with the pump be used for other appliances, like to charge a battery?
A: We provide an auxiliary cable with a USB connection that can be used to charge small appliances like a telephone. However we do not recommend charging a battery, as without a charge controller, the panel can be damaged and ruin your battery. Instead, we suggest using a storage tank as you can pump to it during the day and use gravity flow to irrigate whenever you choose.
Q: Can the solar panel be dismantled to avoid theft at night?
A: Yes, the solar panel can easily be unplugged, and its hinged design makes it easy to carry and store.
Q: Can the solar panel or pump be tracked when it is stolen?
A: All SF2 pumps include remote monitoring with simple geo-location tracking using Google Maps. For an additional fee GPS can also be added to increase the accuracy of location tracking.
