[Using the System Sizing Guide]


Estimate the number of gallons of product pumped per month.


From the installation zone map, (fig. 1) select the nearest zone number corresponding to the intended installation location.


Select the SunPump System model number from the System Sizing Guide by matching the installation zone column to the estimated gallons of product to be pumped per month column. The matching model number will meet most *typical needs for pumping. However, as many geographic and climate parameters exist within certain States, the final recommended model could vary from those listed. This can be determined through your local distributor, or by calling;

 *Typical pump size is 12 volt and less than 20 Amps
