Solazone supply a range of pumps suitable for solar heating pools and spas.

Included are 240 volt Onga Pumps, Australian-made pool & spa heating pumps, and the brushless Combo dc pump, which can be run directly from a battey bank (in solar-powered homes) at any time, or directly from solar panels during the day, via a power maximiser.

 

240 volt Mains Pumps

 

Reltech
The SS Sunsol Series thrives in pool environments that require low to medium head pressure and flow. It has been specifically designed for above ground pools, small to medium in-ground pools and spas and for solar applications.

If you require an energy efficient, low noise and competitively priced pool and spa pump then look no further than the SS Sunsol Series.

DURABLE, RELIABLE &BUILT TO LAST

• Strongly constructed thick walled, one piece pump body made from a high quality engineering grade thermoplastic material that is corrosion resistant. A glass reinforcement and UV additives also ensures the pump is designed to last in all weather conditions.
• Reliable motor rated for continuos operation ensures a long bearing life.
• A stainless steel pump shaft, a lapped true carbon face, ceramic seal and stainless steel assembly nuts and bolts are just some of the quality components used to ensure ongoing reliability and extended lifecycle.

QUIET & ENERGY EFFICIENT

• The design characteristics of the diffuser and balanced impeller system ensures low noise operation whilst offering excellent priming. It also offers constant water flow and filtration at economical running costs.

USER FRIENDLY & FUNCTIONAL

• Extra large robust strainer basket prevents breakage during operation and debris removal and requires less frequent cleaning.
• Positively located strainer basket to eliminate the inlet being blocked.
• Easy removable clear inspection lid for quick and easy routine maintenance and cleaning of strainer basket.
• No stress on the sealing o-rings because clamping pressure is used rather than twisting pressure, therefore extending the life of spare parts on your pump.
• Comes with non return flap for solar applications to prevent back flow.
• Self aligning inlet and outlet barrel unions for both suction and discharge ports allowing for quick and easy installation and removal.
• Sunsol SS Series is covered by a limited 2 year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship (refer to Operating + Installation Manual for full details)

Solar Powered Pump

The Combo pump is powered by a brushless dc three phase motor, that operates from a power maximiser connected to either a 48 volt battery supply, or directly to solar panels.

combo swimming pool pump with controller and solar panels

  • Perfect for running the pool filtration system of an average size pool, or for running independent solar heating.
  • Uses four 180 watt solar panels, located on the pump shed roof, or somewhere near to the pool.
  • Absolutely no running cost for this pump, and it is very quiet.
  • Expected life is in excess of 15 years, as there are no parts to maintain.

Combo brushless DC pump is nominal 600 watts power out

It can be run from maximum of 760 watts of solar panels, or at 48 volts dc input from batteries.

Maximum Flow rate is approximately 250 litres per minute

Maximum head is about 14 metres.

Maximum casing pressure is 1.2 bar

Maximum water temperature is 60 degrees C

Warranty is 3 years pro rata.

Price: $1150

Another use for this pump is as a solar-powered water transfer pump, for fish pond circulation pump applications, and where the total pumping head is less than 12 metres.

There are NO running costs, and no greenhouse gases whatsoever !


The pump controller is a MPPT electronic unit, that maximises the amount of water flow by adjusting the voltage and current from the solar panels, to optimise running speed according to the current solar input conditions. It is RUIJIA Electrical model 10020.

Solar pump control system is a MPPT solar power maximiser.

Maximum input voltage of 110 v, and output voltage of 48 v DC.

Terminals inside are for solar input, battery bank & pump connections, as well as extra terminals for protection of water supply running dry, tank full, etc. There is inbuilt speed control and a timer for when the pump is running from batteries. The controller box is designed to dissipate heat, and is IP rated to protect the electrics from moisture.
