1. Statement 1 is incorrect: Solar power can be used for both surface pumps and submersible pumps. Solar water pumps are available in various configurations, including surface pumps and submersible pumps, which can be powered by solar energy. Submersible pumps are designed to be submerged in water and are commonly used in wells or boreholes.

2. Statement 2 is incorrect: Solar power can be used for both centrifugal pumps and piston pumps. Solar water pumps can be equipped with different types of pumps depending on the specific application. Centrifugal pumps and piston pumps are both commonly used in solar-powered water pumping systems.
