2018 Upgrades to our Solar Well Pump kits!

Every winter during the slower winter season, our engineers stay busy upgrading our solar well pump systems. Using a combination of customer requests we get throughout the year, an analysis of warranty issues, and our own wish of changes, our engineers are usually able to make some big improvements. For all those customers that wait for us in the winter season - thank you for your patience. The upgrades this year are especially exciting! Without further ado, here are our 2018 Upgrades to our Solar Well Pump kits.

Pump
