This document defines methods to evaluate the quality, performance, and general durability of small-scale (less than 2 kilo-watts of power input required) off-grid solar water pumps (SWP) used mainly for agricultural purposes.

The test method consists of the following major components:

  • Overall product quality inspection both internal and external as well as an evaluation of the user manual and manufacturer provided information
  • Evaluation of performance
  • General assessment of various durability metrics (Version 2 only)
