    Solar Powered Pool Pump by SunPumps

    Centrifugal Surface Solar Pump. SCP Sensorless, Brushless DC - CMP Series

    The SCP solar powered centrifugal pool pumps with sensorless, brushless DC motors are the ultimate in performance and reliability. The CMP series features a 2” outlet.

    SCP series pool pumps will replace almost any AC powered pool pump up to 2 HP and because they get their power from the sun, you will never have an electric bill.

    The Sensorless Brushless DC Motors are the ultimate in efficiency, performance and reliability. Designed specifically for solar applications, these motors are less than half the size and weight of a conventional brush type motor and will provide years of trouble free service.
    The SCP series pump are single stage centrifugals constructed from high performance  thermoplastic. They are extremely resistant to mineral and algae deposits while providing outstanding strength and durability. For added protection there is a basket strainer incorporated into the suction side of the pump. Simplicity is a key feature of the SCP series pumps. They are simple to install and field servicing is easily accomplished without the use of specialized tools.

    SunPumps SCP series pumps can not only be used for pool water filtration, but for fountains, water features, pond aeration, circulating water for aqua culture or to irrigate small farms. They were designed for use as a stand-alone water delivery system. There is no better way to provide water for remote homes, villages, small farms as well as many other needs beyond commercial grid power. SunPumps high-quality manufacturing make the SCP series pumps the ultimate in solar powered pool pumps.

    Optional Sun Pumps PCA Series Brushless Controller
    Solar Pump Controller
    The only application the controllers are designed for is the interface between a solar module array and SunPumps.
    SunPumps PCA and PCC series pump controllers are high quality, micro-processor controlled DC power converters designed as the interface between a sensorless brushless DC powered pump and the power solar array. The main purpose of a PC series controller is for motor commutation, supply maximum power point tracking for the solar modules and provide protection for the controller. Independent Water Pumping Systems
    The PC series controllers will boost the current of solar modules in low sunlight conditions while holding the voltage of the solar modules at the maximum power point. This allows a pump to start much earlier in the morning and stay running longer in the evening.
    SunPumps PC series pump controllers have many unique features designed specifically for water pumping. All PC series controllers include a pump speed control circuit, a remote switch circuit, a sensor-less low water cut-off circuit, an electronic circuit breaker and indicator lights. The PCC series controllers have an LCD screen that displays motor voltage, current, motor speed and power.
    Sun Pumps Controller Includes
    Pump speed control circuit
    Remote switch circuit
    Sensor-less low water cut-off circuit
    Electronic circuit breaker and indicator lights
    LCD screen displays motor voltage, current, motor speed & power

    Is this the right size pump for my pool?

    Quick Sizing -
    The quick sizing method is based on the volume of the pool in gallons and between 1 and 1.5 turn-overs per day.

    For example if you have a 20,000 gallon pool you want to size the pump for between 20,000 to 30,000 gallons per day.

    If you have 6 average sun hours then divide by 6 hours (360 minutes) to get gallon per minute

    (20,000 / 360 = 55 GPM  or  30,000 / 360 = 83 GPM)
