Hello: I’d make sure to check the solar voltage when it’s hooked up to a load (the pump). Collector voltage can run rather high when it’s not hooked up. I’d ask about the watt draw on the pump (12 volts times 1.5 amps is 18 watts) and what the watt output of the solar is. A big panel on a small pump will stress the pump. 😕

Yours, Larry
