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.
The photo here is a solar car wash in Kingston, Ontario, who have 18 x 30 tube Latitude51 Solar collectors on, the installer said this about the system....." Those evac tube collectors are amazing. With our pump they are a perfect match. By 7:40 am yesterday (20th June 2011) the pump began to send 40 degree C fluid to the heat exchanger. By 10:54 am it was coming into the heat exchanger at 89 degree C.... "

There is no other "pump" in this system, what you are looking at IS the pump. As soon as the sun comes up, it starts pumping the water round the system. It needs no electricity to run, has no parts to wear out.
 The video below was taken 21st June in Kingston, you can see the sky is almost completely cloudy and the solar system is still producing heat as the pump only runs when the system is producing hot
