yes, it is possible to turn water pumps in to solar pumps we have done it in Pakistan during our last deployment in earthquake that struck district Awaran of Balochistan. It is important to consider the water table level and and depth of water pumping station. If pumping from a spring well source a wee solar panel will suffice.

Subject: [liberationtech] Solarizing water pumps in Puerto Rico

Hi All,

A quick question: A Facebook friend Danay Paravisini (cc'ed) wants to know whether it is possible to solarize water pumps in Puerto Rico?

Most survivors of hurricane Maria are now drinking and using non-potable water because there is no electricity to pump potable water.

Could electric pumps be turned into solar pumps?
