Hi everyone. I am wondering if someone can help me with choosing an appropriate pump, the pv panels required for the pump and the wire required.
I have spent days searching the net and am now so confused!
Here are my requirements:
My water source is a constant (although small) river in a shaded valley, which has a high limestone content ( I'm told that this can cause problems to pumps and it needs to be filtered prior to pumping? Apparently this can be done via some kind of filter tubing placed at the inlet stage?).
I want to pump 900 liters per day.
The water source is located at an altitude of 600m and is to pump to 720m.
The pipe run is about 420m.
The latitude is N 42
I will have a holding tank of 25,000 liters.
As the river is shaded I will need to place the panels near to the water deposit which I calculate as a wire run of about 350 meters.
I have included all the information that I think is necessary, but if more is needed then please ask.
