This bubble pump is installed on a car wash in Kingston Ontario. You might initially think this could be the most boring video ever (!) however this pump is made of glass, has no moving parts and can never wear out. It simply pumps water round the solar hot water system on the roof of the car wash in Kingston Ontario. It is perfectly suited to any "offgrid" application and is an incredible invention.
This car wash has 18 x 30 tube collectors on it. The collectors were supplied by "Latitude51 Solar" . The Bubble Pump was supplied and installed by Bubble Action Pumps.
