Grundfos 40 SQF-5 SQFlex Solar Pump
40 SQF-5 SQFlex Solar Pump
Whether it's used for livestock watering, a pressure system on a remote cabin, or for irrigation, the SQFlex system can be tailored to meet any requirements. Based on the location, depth to water, and the volume of water required, Grundfos' exclusive sizing program finds the best pump and most efficient energy source for your application. The SQFlex system from Grundfos is not just another solar pump; it's a revolution in remote water supply. Designed for maximum reliability, maintenance-free operation, and the flexibility to adapt to virtually any application, SQFlex provides water wherever necessary and whatever the local conditions. Eleven different pump models cover a wide range of heads and flows to allow pumping at extended depths (820 ft) or at high flow rates (80 gal/min) or anywhere in between, depending on your requirements.
Potential SQ Flex applications include:
