  • How many Batteries do I need for my Solar system to run my Pond Pump?

    My Pond waterfall, the pump failed and I decided to get a DC Pump to save electricity on the longrun.

    I got a 1000Watt Power Inverter.

    I got the nessecary Cables, and 8 of 100 Watt Solar Panels, Polycrystalline.

    I have 3 of 100 Ah Deep Cycle Acid Sealed Batteries.

    I have 100A MPPT Charge Controller.

    The Pump uses 115 Watt

    How many Batteries do I need to keep this pump running 10 Hours without daylight charging the system?

    We have 14 Hours of Daylight at the solar point.

    I'll be adding an extra battery incase, too.

  • Which is Cheaper on my Electric Bill. AC or DC Power?

    I need to replace my Pond Pump. 

    But I have a question before deciding. 

    A pump at the store is an AC unit. It consume 150 Watt, 110V. 

    It's small, but pumps a lot of water. 

    A pump On Amazon is a DC unit. It comsume 150 Watt, 24V. 

    It can pump as much water as the AC pump in the store. 

    Which unit, will save me more money on my Electric bill? 

    Or are they Just Equal because they consume equal Wattage. 

    Just carious because seems like DC power isn't as strong as AC power. 

    I am in California. Rates are as high as $0.27/ kwh. 

    This is important. So I thank you very much in advance.

  • Is it illegal to pay pickers by the bucket and not by hour?

    Just carious. A farm is hiring pickers to pick and harvest produce. But they are paying by the 5 Gallon Bucket for $4 a full bucket. They have employee health care benefits and etc. The only difference is, They arent paying by the hour. Is this illegal or is it something Legal that us City Hourly workers just never heard of? If it s LEGAL, what s it called?
