Water Pump

AKA: Circulating pump, circulator

Pumps are used in active systems, but are not required in batch orthermosyphon systems. They circulate water or antifreeze between the solar collector and the storage tank. The right pump for the job depends on the size of the system and the distance and height between the collector(s) and the storage tank. AC pumps plug into a wall outlet while DC pumps are powered from a DC source, such as a photovoltaic panel. Good pumps can last as long as 20 years with heavy use.
