We have a little well off the corner of our house. The pump is electric, wired to a 10-amp breaker on our breaker box in the house.
A potential opportunity has arisen to MAYBE get a small photovoltaic system installed to power the pump, in the event of power interruption. We live in a semi-rural area at the end of the above-ground power lines. A possible backup system is a big carrot--even without worries about SHTF situations, our power gets interrupted a lot. We are on city water, but water is critical enough for one to really want two or three backups.
We could really use the specs for the current wired water pump currently installed, but the pump has no face plate to make things easier. It is possible that some information could be gleaned from opening the thing up, but I don't know. The house was built around 1930, is a little old farmhouse, and I have no idea how old the well pump is.
Do you have any advice on how to proceed in getting good data for voltage and current drawn?
