Reply To: Mobile solar powered bore pumps

Hi Jackson,

Yes, as stated above, the assumption that there will be water tanks already on site where the solar bore pumps would be installed. A great example of the fixed pumps is shown in the interactives. These fixed pumps are basic fire-fighting pumps with a cost of approximately 500 dollars, however these are low costs and have limited quality and flow rates.
