solar pumping technology

last nov. 16th & 17th, a solar pumping technology seminar was conducted by lorentz at max’s restaurant, scout tuazon, quezon city.

i’m very much interested in the swimming pool application, coz pool filtration is a regular activity & is the second biggest consumer of electricity next to aircons! together w/ chemical free disinfection, one can have a truly green pool that is good for the people using it as well as the environment. chemical free pools (using saltwater chlorinators, ultraviolet filtration, ozone generators, etc.) don’t harm the swimmer’s clothes, their eyes, skin & hair like what chlorine does (u won’t have teary eyes w/ chemical free pools!) cancer survivors would definitely go for chemical free pools….u also save money on chemicals…in d near future, only stubborn ones will still be using chemicals in their swimming ‘fools’…

if ur running on diesel generating sets to filter ur pool…then ur a polluter. u can prevent d diesel emission by going solar! of course one can retrofit their pool pumps w/ solar panels, but you’ll be needing a lot of solar panels to run an a/c pump (w/ all the losses from the inverter). btw, inverters are expensive & seldom last a long time (except….but i’ve seen expensive branded inverters that are already dead but not old enough…could be the users?) if you have a cheap inverter from (hmmm)….buy another one, you’ll definitely need to change it in the near future….retrofitted solar powered pumps are not robust. the solution to the problem is the direct current brushless motor (dcbm) technology, they’re 90% efficient (so less solar panels needed!). german quality stuff are proven long lasting products (lorentz solar pumps are working w/out problems for more than 12 years in africa & other harsh environments – hope my memory serves me well). there are many solar pump systems installed in the phils. that are no longer in service today….many are even donated by developed countries…

lorentz solar pumps can be accessed via android devices (almost everybody got one or two of these). the system can be monitored via bluetooth. a pump manager software can control (remote configuration/programming) & monitor the system via a cloud based management. this can create a worry-free system.

maintenance of dcbm pumps are not complicated especially the helical rotor technology…non-engineers can be easily trained on the ground…

this is the future! (of course other applications like farming & water supply are cool but for starters… swimming ‘fools’ r better!) if ur wasting money on pumping as well as polluting the environment, u better stop d pollution…

gadgets (e.g. smartphones, laptops, tablets, etc.) r cool but…their production s far fr being environment friendly…

if u live in areas wer pple can recycle plastics, pls do so. pity r those who live in rural areas or isolated islands! most likely, dey don’t disposed off deir trash properly….

i’ve seen pple still burning plastic waste here in d phils! tis s really sad…. our clean air act & ecological solid waste mgt act prohibit d burning of waste….but to no avail….

pple r not aware dat burning anything chlorinated bellow 800 deg C will emit dioxin & furans…d nastiest chemicals known 2man!

but hu cares? f u do….pls help educate our fellow men.

how much water do one consume in a day?

This amazing graphic story by Angella Morelli shows that one can consume about 3.5 cubic meters f water per day depending on wat activity & wat kinda food one eat!
