Off Grid Water: Simple Pump With Solar Option




What do you think about this video?

ZivaForFreedom: rofl. you may not read this but I seen the word "simple" in your vid name so I took a look. AH!! thats so not simple!! Wish I could have something like that in my backyard but they dont allow springs in the city here. Sure would be nice to have you as a neighbor though. Your mind is amazing! "Ziva"

maverick29661: How much would the this cost if I installed it myself...(local to you)

Smidgy123: I would think that installing this system below frost (most areas 4' or less is safe)would be your only sure fire way at success if you dealt with below freezing temperatures. This could be done numerous ways, but the key would be to allow the earth to maintain above freezing temperatures.That way plumbing from the pump to the destination could also remain below frost and not freeze. This would be a lot of extra work to setup, but possible.

thecpukiller: You can do the same thing as this basically, solar panels and DC pump to pump from your cistern to the pressure tank instead of a simple pump and well.

MrBigsrider09: OT, on looking for signs of where to find a well other than the topo map, you had mentioned some trees like water and those normally can tell you water is close. What kinda trees? My ex hubby dug the whole for the power pole and hit MUD 5 ft down. I might could try hydromisson hand digger and see what comes of that. But I wanted a well close to the garden and horse pasture.

LakeWater: How deep is the intake?

caty3300: no message saying "first" lol

Gary Smith: I'll give the pressure gauge 1 day

2020tesla: instead of the jumper could you just use one set of contacts? when they eventually fail you could move the wires over to the other set.

hermand Vogel: What keeps this from freezing,,I noticed you only have 2x4s in the walls. Do I need more insulation in a nothern states?

Tony Person: Cool back up!

Dan Clement: That is so cool. I do not understand all of the mechanics of your pump, but what a nice setup.

flysubcompact: ENG775, Another outstanding video. Thank you for taking the time to do these. If we had a spring or a well on our place I'd so do this.

lking88h: Is the new motor available? If so, please send quote to this email or a vendor that has the motor. Thanks

Anondlynn: You're a pretty handy guy ;-)

wyattoneable: Outstanding system. Thanks for spending some time to share with us.

tkarlmann: I was hoping you would show the size of the solar array needed to run this. Thanks.

Securityinc1: how deep of a well can that pump handle?

glockfan86: so the well pumps to the tank which then pumps to the house?

ky prepper: Your videos are great for the electrically knowledgeable watchers. Not so much for the typical preppers that are attempting to learn/build/survival from scratch since most of the devices,pieces, and parts you use....won't be available when SHTF tomorrow morning (not really thinking tomorrow, just saying for effect) unless everyone has the funds to run out and purchase every thinkable part known to man right now. Video title midleading....NOT "simple" at all.

EarthshipFreedom: Another awesome setup! Have you ever put a hand pump on a cistern? Or made a set up like this on a cistern? I am getting ready to install a 2500 gal. cistern below ground and am trying to think of the most versatile setup. I built a water organization module for water filtering, but it is 150' down from the cistern. I actually have that same h20 tank that you have in this video, but i noticed the 90 degree steel elbow on the bottom was already rusting. I went ahead and put all stainless on it.

John Rambo: Hello. I've been researching the simple pump and thinking about installing one beside my already exsisting well pump. My question is if I just install with the pump handle would you recommend a bigger pressure tank in the house, so that I could pump it and have some stored for normal useage.

Kade Porter: Engineer775, I'd be interested in doing a similar setup. Do you sell the parts or have a parts list? I may have to build an insulated pump house or alter the setup to deal with Idaho's cold winters. Thanks in advance for your feedback!

MrRedbeard2010: you should check out Suniva solar panels they are the highest watt/ amp for your money very nice and have 5 different panels to choose from. 245 watt for $236 or so thought you would find interesting.

1MileAtaTime: I was wondering if you could make a video or explain what would be an ideal set up for those of us that live up north? I have been hesitant to move forward with a system like this because of the temps we get in the winter. Thank you for all your time and the outstanding videos.

AdolfHippster: i wish i were as cleaver as you

MrWildextreme: how much dos something like this cost?

1crazynordlander: Nice, I wish I had a well besides my rural water. I got some IBC containers to catch rain water next year for the garden. I have considered a 2000 gallon tank I can put into my attached garage that I can fill in an emergency and hook into my house supply. Is there any solar solution for a cistern setup like I am considering? We have an abundance of wind also.
