29 Mar The use of solar powered fountains in the garden decoration
From of old, the fountains are used for the creation of classic garden and park design. The fountain is one of the most efficient landscape decorations. But there is an alternative to the usual fountain- solar powered fountain. Such fountains operate on a pump, powered from the batteries’ energy storage.
The installation of traditional fountain usually takes a lot of time and efforts, considerable material inputs, and requires special equipment for connection. The solar powered fountain possesses all the benefit of traditional fountains. It can be performed in different styles and daring design, but at the same time, it is very easy to install.
The main advantage of this fountain is the complete independence from all power circuits. The mounting of solar power construction doesn’t require the building of special concealed wiring, external wiring, or other device spoiling the garden design. The cost of solar powered fountains is much lower than that of its traditional analogs.
Choosing the model for the private landscape, you should take into account all the advantages and disadvantages of these constructions. Firstly, this device can operate only with the intense lighting. The pumps can’t work at night. Secondly, the power, produced by the battery, depends on the intensity of sun rays, which in its turn, is changing during the day according to the weather conditions. So, the pressure of this construction isn’t stable. It is impossible to regulate the jet power. Thirdly, in winter the solar radiation can initiate the pump operation. The pump will start to supply the water to the fountain, which can cause the fail of the pump. That’s why it is better to store the fountain in a dark room with the above-zero temperature.
Despite some certain disadvantages, these constructions are very popular with the owners of cottages and country-houses. The broad assortment allows you to choose the model of any size and style, which will blend perfectly with your garden-plot landscape.
This pleasant to the eye construction can have different location (on the table, on the ground, on the terrace or in the summer-house) and design (floating models, stylizing the flowers of water lilies or leave, having the form of statue, etc.) The solar powered fountain can become the brightest accent of your garden-plot.
