Source Materials

Through our enormous buying power we obtain quality solar panels and billet materials at a considerably lower cost than much of our competition. We’re happy to pass along this savings to our customers.

Machining

We source billet materials from exceptional vendors, then inspect, cut, and load the raw aluminum into our modern CNC machining centers. The raw material is precision machined to craft durable aluminum parts and housing cylinders that make up the pumps. After machining, the parts are cleaned and inspected for quality and fit. Then each part is corrosion coated for durability and longevity.

Hand Assembly

Finally, our highly trained team carefully assembles the advanced pump components. API products—including our industry-leading aluminum pumps, user-friendly controllers, wiring harnesses, and durable aluminum solar panel mounts—are individually hand-assembled with the utmost care.

Testing

Once assembled, every pump undergoes rigorous testing in our custom computer-controlled test stand. Each pump must pass a multitude of parameters—including proper flow rates, pressure, and amperage draw—under a variety of voltages before it is deemed worthy to be sold as an API product.

Shipping

When the pump systems pass our tests they are inventoried and ready for pick up or shipment. Each system that gets shipped is individually packed with custom foam and boxes.
