Can I Run a 24 Volt DC Water Pump on 12 Volts?

Generally speaking, you can run a 24 Volt dc water pump on 12 Volts but we do not recommend you do this. Although, 12v voltage is within the working voltage span of the dc water pump and the possible starting voltage range of the dc water pump. However, as the 12 Volts voltage is much lower than its 24v rated working voltage of the pump, the input power of the pump will be much lower than that of the rated input power of the pump. As a result, the running speed of the 24v water pump will be greatly weakened and reduced, and the speed will be very slow lead to the power output will be insufficient. And the working flow and head performance of the 24V DC water pump will not be able to meet your requirements. What’s more serious is it difficult to start the dc water pump, resulting in large battery loss. It will reduce the pump working speed a lot after using 12V power supply, power drops, current increases, operation is powerless. Therefore, as a manufacturer we strongly do not recommend that you use 12v dc power supply to drive a 24 volt dc water pump.
