The Dankoff Solarm surface pump is designed to draw water from a shallow well, spring, pond, river or water tank and push it over long distances. The maximum suction capacity is 25 vertical feet at sea level (subtract 1 foot per 1000 feet of elevation). It can be used for homes and cabins, agricultural irrigation and for watering livestock. The Solaram pump is ultra-efficient and uses less power than any other pump in its class. It's capable of being powered directly from a solar array and will work in low light conditions with the addition of a linear current booster. These pumps are easy to install, simple to maintain and have a proven design with a 20 year life expectancy under normal operating conditions. This model comes with a 1 year manufacturers warranty.
