Tiger Weekender

Product Description

The extremely popular "Tiger" is the largest of our "Weekender" solar water pumping systems and is designed to provide a water flow rate up to 14 litres per minute at a constant pressure of 300 kPa for a maximum of 4 hours per day.   This is sufficient pressure for a shower, washing machine, dishwasher and most demand gas hot water services.   A flow of 14 litres per minute is enough for a single shower and one kitchen tap at the same time.  

The "Tiger" is sized for a medium flow demand and is suitable for a house or weekender for up to 6 people with a higher pressure demand than the "Panther".    The "Tiger" is sized for a 100 A/hour battery with a 150w 12v panel receiving 4-6 hours of sunlight per day, less sunlight per day will reduce the number of pumping hours per day.

The "Tiger" will pump water from any above ground rainwater tank into the cabin or weekender at a variable flow rate and at a constant pressure of 300 kPa.   This pressure is usually more than ample for a good shower.   The other benefit of the unit is that as the pump is a variable speed drive, it speeds up in response to an increase in flow demand.   What this really means is that if you only turn on the tap a little bit, the pump will be running at less than half speed, as you open the tap further, the flow demand increases and, the pump speed increases.   This pump provides a constant pressure and will turn off automatically when you turn off the tap.

The "Tiger" is recommended for a weekender or house where one to six people will be staying as, the pumping system, solar panel and battery have been sized for a maximum of 4 hours of pump operation per day.  If you use the pump for more than 4 hours a day, you will be drawing excessive power from the battery and if the battery level falls too far, the controller will stop power to the pump.   If you think that 6 hours of pumping per day is not enough, contact us for a larger system.   The power figures are based on the solar panel receiving 6 hours of full sunlight every day, the 150w 12v solar panel comes with a steel post and mounting frame so that you can install the solar panel in the sun facing North, or, you can of course mount the panel on the roof with some additional items.
