Solar Water Features
As the range of water features has become more and more varied, an increasingly popular range of features have appeared that dazzle us with displays powered not from a humble plug socket bun from that huge ball of nuclear space-fire that we have such a long and beneficial relationship with; the sun. Solar Power has become a major selling point in the water feature world: they utilise green energy, cost nothing to run, don’t require any lengthy cabling and run our water features at the time we want them to the most, when the sun is shining! All well and good if you live in the south of France you could argue, but what about those who dwell in more temperate (okay, rainy) regions, like say, the UK; surely solar power is no real option for such soggy climes? It is not as simple as that, thankfully.
Luckily, for those who do not want a feature that’ll run when the weather’s looking considerably greyer than we’d like, solar technology manufacturers have heard their pleas and come up with a number of solutions. The simplest, the size, capacity and efficiency of solar panels continues to improve and so features with a high quality panel (look out for high capacity solar cells panels utilising polyvinyl butyl) are capable of capturing enough sunlight to perform effectively under less than optimal conditions. Still, one of the nice things about having a water feature is having the ability to use it whenever you like, and a simple direct sunlight only model might disappoint in the respect.
A possible solution is in hand, however, as features increasingly use a panel with a battery backup system, allowing the panel to be charged either by sunlight or an A/C adaptor and then used as required. These are perfect for British summertime, as they’ll make the most of that precious sun and stone enough power to keep running when the inevitable cloud rumbles over to ruin everything. These systems often allow for timers to be set up so that your feature will turn on at a certain time during the day and at their best will match the flexibility and efficiency of a mains powered feature.
In the not so distant past, an issue with solar power was that inefficient panels meant only the smallest of pumps could be used - and therefore only the most vertically-challenged features could make much use of it. There’s not much point having a solar powered feature if your pump isn’t man enough to push anything more than a drip out of the top of it, after all. This, too, is becoming much less of an issue, with the new generation of solar kits able to pump up to a respectable 2m, rather larger than your typical garden water feature. Still, it’ll be some time before consumer-level solar kits are suitable for the largest features on the market and as the panels get larger they get more difficult to disguise, as they’re not the most attractive addition to a garden yet demand a prominent position so they can soak up the sun.

Solar Powered Water Features
Waterfeatures2go is committed to representing and supplying only the latest technology for solar powered water feature
Are you thinking of making a purchase of a solar fountain elsewhere? Ensure you ask your solar powered water feature supplier the following questions and see if their product range can match our own:
- Does the product have an included A/C adaptor for use either indoors or with poor light conditions to charge the battery?
- If the product is described as terracotta, is it actually produced in pot or a resin substitute?
- Does the solar water feature have an option for solar LED lights?
- Does the pump utilise the latest solar technology? Does it have a recharging battery backup connected to the solar panel, allowing the fountain to continue operating in poor weather conditions*
- Does the solar powered water feature have a programmable timer so that you can decide when to enjoy your fountain running, be it day or night, not just when the sun is shining?
- Does the solar pump have an auto cut off to prevent the pump from burning out if the water level drops too low?

If your alternative supplier can't answer yes to all these questions, you run the risk of ending up with a product inferior to the extensive range available on Waterfeatures2go.
*You can even charge up the battery backup with the optional A/C adaptor to continue enjoying your fountain in poor weather conditions. Rain or shine, your feature will continue to operate right up until the battery is flat.
