24 volt / 12 volt pumps are commonly used in recreational vehicles like caravans, motor homes or boats, but also in off-grid cabins and even small homes. DC pressure pumps have several advantages over 240V household pumps:
- More energy efficient (a lot!)
- Smaller in size
- DC powered
Power Efficient Pumping
DC pumps run directly of your 24 volt / 12 volt battery bank and do not require an inverter. This alone eliminates "inverter losses" that occur when battery power is converted to grid-like AC power.
The 24V/12V DC pumps we stock use between 40-200 Watts – which is only a fraction of even the most efficient 240V household pressure pumps.
