i need help to run my pond pump 24/7

THE BIG QUESTION IS HOW MANY 60WATTS PANELS WOULD I NEED TO RUN THIS PUMP 24/7?

i have a 250gph pump rated at 120v 60hz 20watts

i have a 60 Watt and a 120 Watt poly crystaline solar panel (total 180 Watts of solar panel)

i also got a duralast deep cycle battery from autozone 550ca at 90 ah

sunforce 30a controller for future-proofing

400watt modified power inverter

when i used my kill-a-watt meter and tested my pump on the wall i got 12.5watts and .19 amps at 120 volts ac, it works perfectly even though it draws low watts which is great...

when i plugged it up to my solar system i got around 10 watts .19 amp at 12 volts dc, it still works fine...

so i'd give it a 10-20watts peak.

so i multiplied 20watt x 24 hours = 480 watts required

and i know that a 550ca is a about 90 amp hours. i also know that don't want to discharge a battery below 50%.

To recharge that battery you've got about 4-6 hours of good sunlight to work since i am in texas... in winter! that is coming soon!, getting darker.

480 watts / 5 hours = 96 watts per hour.

and due to natural inefficiency i did 96w/.75= 128 watts of panel

will a 180 Watts panel work for this system 24/7?

and i have a 60 watt and a 120 watt will it work on this system?

am i doing this correctly?
