Solar and Battery powered Water Pump.
There is an increasing requirement for land owners and managers to keep livestock away from watercourses. The European Water Framework Directive (WFD) has been establishing a framework for the protection of inland waters, transitional waters (estuaries), coastal waters and groundwater.
Diffuse water pollution from agriculture accounts for 61% of nitrogen entering rivers, up to 40% of phosphorus and 75% of sediment. Fencing off watercourses protects from river bank erosion and relieves poaching so contributes greatly to cleaner water and promotes growth of healthy native flora and fauna.
- An easy, reliable and self sufficient way of providing water to livestock when watercourses are fenced off.
- Reliable, easily transportable and capable of catering for large numbers of different types of animals.
- The solar and battery kits easily integrate with all standard water troughs so there is no need to train animals as with traditional pasture pumps which are also limited in the number of animals they can supply.
- The solar kit has supplied groups of 90 cattle with all their water requirements, without any need to change or charge batteries.
- Far more flexible in application and compared with the cost of mains water, they are very economical.
- Output Capacity at 2meter head - 675 liters per Hour. 3meter head - 370 liters per hour
