A low-maintenance solar pump



A low-maintenance solar pump



Appropriate Technology 10(1): 14-15



The pump, which is used to provide water, consists of a tank enclosed in an insulated greenhouse. The sun's heat during the day causes the air in the tank to expand and partly to escape along a pipe leading down to the water source. When the tank cools during the night water is slowly drawn up the pipe.
