Solar Pond Pumps for your outdoor pond is a great addition as well being environmentally friendly they save on energy costs.
What is a solar pond pump?
The water in your pond needs to be oxygenated in order to sustain the fish you have in the pond. An air pump regularly reoxygenates the water, and they usually require a form of power. A solar air pump offers a cost-effective way to keep a flow of air in the pond. Simply place the solar panel with a clear line of sight to the Sun, and you have a zero running cost solution to improving your fishes’ health.
Why should you consider a solar powered pond pump?
After the initial outlay of cost, there is no additional running costs. The panels convert the solar energy into electricity. This does mean that without a battery supply, the solar air pump only works during the day. This is usually sufficient, but you can pay more upfront to include a battery.
As the solar powered pond pump doesn’t require electricity from the power grid, they don’t use carbon to generate power. Using the renewable source of energy from the Sun means there are less carbon emissions.
Without the need to run power to the pond, there is a reduced risk of danger. There is no chance of a short circuit or electrocution. A solar powered pond pump is an ideal option, especially if you have children or pets.
Easy to install
The solar panels used are small and most come with a stand or ground spike attached, making them easier to install. As you don’t need to run any power lines out to the pond, the installation couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is make sure the solar panel is pointing towards the Sun, and place the pump in the water. If you opt for a solar powered pond aerator with a battery, then you will need to choose an ideal place for the battery to go.
