A solar water fountain utilises a pump powered by a solar panel, which harnesses the sun's energy. Fountains powered by solar provide several advantages over their electrical counterpart.
We've already explored several reasons for owning a water feature, including aesthetics and health-related benefits. Now adding a solar pump to your fountain brings numerous additional advantages. We explore five below.
The first obvious benefit is that a solar water feature doesn't require a power connection. The solar pump uses the sun's rays for its power. So rather than paying for electricity expenditure, you save money. Moreover, the solar panel works during the day to conserve energy from the sun. So you can use that energy to power your fountain in the evenings.
The consequence of not needing a connection to a power outlet means your solar water fountain isn't disadvantaged by cumbersome, long cords. Thus you can declutter footpaths and avoid the safety hazard of people tripping over the power cord. Moreover, there's no need to worry about concealing the visible cable, so your fountain set-up is tidy.
Our solar water features come plug & play and are easy to install. Connect the pump to the feature's hose and solar panel, fill the reservoir with water, and you're on your way to a new solar garden feature.
Without needing electrical power, you can place your solar feature anywhere in your garden, wherever there's sunlight. This freedom will give you more choices in where to place your new spectacle.
Electricity production contributes to the second most significant greenhouse gas emissions. You can reduce your carbon footprint by opting for a solar fountain over an electric one or converting an existing one to a solar-powered one. Thus, it's a win-win as you can take care of the earth while saving money.
