Take your pool pump ‘off-the-grid’ and start saving 10 to 20 kilowatt hours of electricity a day! Fully installed packages available from $15.00 per week!! See our special deal below
Your filtration pump is one of the most costly household electrical appliances to run. Depending on the size of your pool, to run a standard 1.5HP 240 volt AC pump costs anywhere from $1000 to $2000 in electricity every year. This also means you are contributing in the vicinity of 6 tons of greenhouse emissions each year

SunSmart solar power pool pumps take your pool pump ‘off the grid’ and will save you more in energy costs than a 3 to 4 KW solar energy system.
This is achieved by the SunSmart solar power pool pump system utilising high efficiency brushless DC (Direct Current) motor technology. Furthermore, the SunSmart DC motors use 3 phase circuitry, which means they are the most efficient DC motor in the marketplace and only require a few panels to drive them. If you attempted to run your existing AC pump from solar panels, you would need to install 16 solar panels to drive it. The SunSmart 500 can do the job with just three or four solar panels.
Brushless DC (Direct Current) motors are almost twice as efficient as AC (Alternating Current) motors, which means that the job of filtering with DC power can be achieved with a much smaller motor, which means fewer panels, which means lower cost. Because there are no brushes required to make the electrical contacts, a brushless DC motor will outlast its AC equivalent by 2 to 3 times.
SunSmart solar power pool pumps are Australian designed and manufactured to SunSmart’s proprietary high quality Australian standards for Australian conditions. Be wary of lookalikes that are popping up… they are very different inside and do not offer decent warranties. If it isn’t SunSmart, it is just another cheap copy.
There are four models to choose from to cater for all size pools and all situations. The SunSmart 200, the SunSmart 500, the SunSmart 900 and the SunSmart 1200. The SunSmart 200 is great for plunge pools or spas, the SunSmart 500 will cater for pools up to 70,000 litres. Electricity is supplied directly by the solar panels. The power is managed by a specially designed controller that utilises MPPT technology. There are no inverters, just straight DC current from the panels directly to the pump via the controller, which means losses are minimal. The system is so efficient that it will continue to run even on cloudy days.

SunSmart Solar Power Pumps Pty Limited is an Australian company that introduced their range of pumps into the Australian marketplace in 2010. These are a proprietary high quality build and very different to the rapidly increasing amount of cheap copies popping up in the marketplace. The warranty offered by the copies is a reflection of their quality.
Our Generation 2 pumps were introduced in 2010 and are still performing strong, our later model Gen 3 introduced in 2012 has a proven track record with many thousands of pumps being sold, and now our latest Gen 4 with even more improvements raises the bar just that much further that our competitors are being left behind.
Outstanding quality, reliable, high life expectancy and 5 year *warranty on the pump for peace of mind in your investment.
