Hi there,

Looking for pump recommendations.
We have a stream in our field and I'd like to pump the water into a trough for the horses.
We don't have any electricity on site so I'm hoping someone can recommend a solar pump of sorts that can get the water from the stream and into a trough via an automatic filler!

Any ideas??

hi have you tried looking at garden centres and pond supplies? I would think a solar pond pump would be capable but not sure about stopping it pumping automatically

I would not use water from a stream due to the danger of contamination with blue-green algae. I lost a pony within 24 hours to acute liver failure caused by this. The stream was fast flowing through her field but spread into a pool some distance up, the algae grew there in warm weather and released toxins when it died off.
