A relatively recent idea that is being used in unique and beautiful outdoor decorating is that of the floating solar fountain. This fountain consists of a small unit that is powered by a solar panel. The pump lifts the water in a fine spray to fall softly back into the pool or pond where it is placed. When used in a pond or pool, the fountain adds water movement that ripples and flows so that there is always the sight and sounds of softly moving water inviting you to itself.
Safe to Use
Installing a solar fountain in your pond or pool is easy to do. Since you don’t have electrical or battery power to operate the pump, installation is as simple as placing the unit in the water and waiting for the sun’s rays to power its operation. A solar fountain can be incorporated into other landscaping features in your backyard, but the floating design is usually just the fountain itself, resting on a panel that collects and transforms the sun’s rays into energy to Newsrooms power the water pump. The panel is sometimes disguised slightly as a lily pad to add realism and a touch of whimsy to the unit.
The Ultimate Green Pump
By using a floating solar fountain in your pond or pool, you will add additional humidity to the air. At the same time, you are not using petroleum based energy to operate the pump itself. The fountain requires only the energy of the sun in order to power a fine spray of water into the air before falling back to the surface of the surrounding water. Constant water movement during the sunlit hours is both attractive and restful. You can lounge by your pool with the knowledge that you are not a wasteful user of the earth’s resources of energy.
