SunSmart Hydro 520 Solar Powered Pool Pump
Run your pump 100% free, with zero emissions!
By combining your ultra-efficient SunSmart solar power pool pump with solar panels, you are able to run your pump totally off-grid, meaning no mains connection and zero electricity bills!
Direct DC connection for higher efficiency
Attaching solar panels to regular mains-powered AC (Alternating Current) appliances requires the installation of an inverter, which transforms the DC (Direct Current) being produced by the panels into AC, which your regular appliances use. The losses through an inverter are typically 20%, and the inefficiencies of an AC motor are around 30%
SunSmart solar power pool pumps, however, already run on DC, so there is no need for an inverter. The clean DC energy simply feeds straight into the pump, where the smart controller regulates its exact speed and flow rate to maximise efficiency.
This means less expensive parts for you to invest in, easier installation, and less power loss between the panels and the actual motor inside the pump. The DC motors used in the SunSmart range of solar power pool pumps are multi-pole 3 phase motors which have a remarkable 96% efficiency.
Smart controller for optimal speed
Our pumps work with optional intelligent Maximum Power Point Tracker (MPPT) controllers, which vary the pumping speed and power consumption according to the amount of sunlight and the amount of work the pump needs to do.
This innovative system improves power generation by up to 30%, and enables the pump to work well, even on cloudy days
DIY, or receive a rebate for professional installation
As our smaller pump and panel systems are classed as ELV (Extra Low Voltage) appliances, you don’t need an electrical licence to install them, so if you or someone you know wants to perform a DIY installation, no problem!
