Join the BADU® Revolution and invest in a BADU® Solar System for your pool

Speck Pumps is proud that we are, once again, pioneers in the swimming pool industry. With our latest innovation known as the BADU® Solar System, pool and pond owners can connect solar power directly to their Speck Pumps swimming pool or Koi pond pump. Thanks to this system, pool and pond owners can now turn free sunlight into energy that will let their pump run effectively.


The African sun and excellent weather conditions we have here in South Africa is ideal for

solar power technology. Most areas receive an average of almost 9 hours of sunlight per day, which is more than enough to run a swimming pool or pond pump. Therefore, installing a Photovoltaic (PV) system will allow your Speck Pumps pump to run 365 days a year!


Our solar (PV) system makes use of 315W panels with a current supply of 338 volts and a booster to generate DC power from the sun. Through the controller box, AC power is converted directly to the pump. Most solar pumps on the market today run on DC power and can generally not provide the output performance of a normal AC pump.


With BADU® Solar System, pool and pond owners can say goodbye to high electricity bills and load shedding hampering their pool’s maintenance.


How the BADU Solar System® works:

The BADU Solar System® functions solely on power generated through sunlight. Sunlight shines onto the solar panel, creating DC electricity. From here, the electricity flows from the panels through a booster to the controller box where it gets converted to AC electricity, which is the same type of power supplied by a power grid.


When installed, the solar panels are installed in rows. If you are in the Southern hemisphere, the panels should face true North, and if you are in the Northern hemisphere it should face true

South. To generate the best possible power, the panels need to be tilted the same angle as your property’s latitude, for example: Cape Town is 33˚, Durban is 29˚, JHB is 26˚ and Pretoria is 25˚.


Our panels are installed with boosters to increase the amount of electricity generated, making our system more economical with fewer panels covering your roof.


The BADU Solar System® can run solely on solar power, or in conjunction with power from the grid, which is great news for Koi enthusiasts. The BADU Solar System® is designed to use solar power first and then to top up with what is required, if at all, from the grid. Thanks to this innovative design, you too can convert your existing Speck Pumps pump to a solar powered system which will enable you to save on your electricity bill.


Another feature of the BADU Solar System® is that you can link to the controller software to your computer or smart phone, allowing you to monitor it from anywhere. This way, you can ensure that it is working, you can keep track of its performance stats and change settings, which makes running your pump remotely, safe and easy.

Special Features:

  • Compatible with any Speck Pumps pump up to 1.10kW in size.


  • Output performance of a normal AC pump.


  • Dual power usage capability.


  • Control remotely via smart phone or computer for a convenient user experience.
