Thank you to hundreds of customers that made suggestions last year to help make our new solar pump systems even easier to install. See the 2018 Upgrades here
The famous RPS 400 is trusted by farmers and ranchers with moderate head and water requirements. Four solar panels can be mounted easily on a single pole, and at low head can still pump 1800 gallons a day, and over 400 gallons at 250ft. Batteries or a generator can be used to supplement as needed. Brushless motors mean no replacement of carbon brushes and years of smooth, reliable performance. Lifetime Rotor Warranty and the only field-serviceable pump available. Spec Sheet.

Thanks, everything appears in good shape
We are up and running. Producing 5gal/min.
Pumps a little slower off 12 volt batteries but very fast with the solar panels directly. I need to add a simple switch to be able to move back and forth between the two from the house. Engineer said I could do at 36 volts too so maybe I will try that too. So far so good
I highly recommended a friend call RPS and do it right the first time. Everything is running beautifully I couldnt be happier. Ill continue to praise you guys to others as often as I can.
great pressure and better than estimate gpm be sure to mount the float switch casing to something solid in the tank as the inner part needs to move up and down. Once i figured that out, smooth sailing thanks guys
I own four RPS pumps. The water table varies on my properties and its been essential to have pumps that can handle different depths. The guys at RPS are great. Helpful upfront but also when I called for help installing my first kit. (its easy by the way I just had a brain fart) Thats when you can really tell a good company. Ill probably be back again later this year.
Jeremy was very helpful. Pumping great so far. Happy with the rate. Better than Id thought.
Jeremy and Mike are top notch guys and realy helpful over email and phone better quality than anything else we could find and cheaper too.
We installed this with my inlaws. Easy install. We added a 12v booster pump to run water up to our kitchen, washer and bathroom. Nice to have the extra panels too.
