Solar Water Features FAQs

  • Benefits of solar powered water features

    • Easy to set up

    • No wiring

    • Very cheap to run

    • Eco-friendly

    There are many great reasons to choose a solar-powered water feature over a mains-powered feature. One of the most popular reasons is that solar water features are almost ridiculously easy to set up and maintain. With no wiring to hook up to an outdoor mains socket, you can place the feature almost anywhere in your garden, whereas mains-powered water features usually need to be fairly close to your house to enable the wiring to reach the power supply.

    Not only can you place your solar fountain wherever you choose (so long as the solar panel has access to sunlight), but to start it up, all you need to do is situate it in a sunny spot and add water.

  • How do I set up my solar water feature?

    One of the most popular reasons to choose a solar water feature, is they’re so easy to set up and maintain. With no wiring to hook up to an outdoor mains socket, you can place a solar water feature almost anywhere in your garden. Mains-powered water features usually need to be fairly close to your house to enable the wiring to reach the power supply.

  • What are the running costs for solar water features?

    After the initial cost of purchasing the feature itself, there are no running costs. Whereas a mains-powered feature will add to your electricity bill, a solar water feature is powered entirely by free, renewable energy from the sun. In this way, you can not only save money and enjoy a beautiful yet very economical garden feature, but also do your bit for the environment by using eco-friendly, renewable energy instead of fossil fuels.

    If you already have a mains-powered water feature and would like to take advantage of the many benefits of solar power, our solar pump kits will enable you to convert it into a solar-powered water feature.

  • Do solar water features work in winter?

    A frequent question we are asked is will a solar water feature continue to work during the winter time?

    Obviously, there is much less sunlight during the winter due to fewer daylight hours and poor weather. Therefore, if you notice a decrease in the performance of your feature, this is normal. However, the solar panels we use for our water features should continue to detect some sunlight even in winter and while they may not perform as well as they do during the summer, they should still continue to work.

    We do supply a number of solar-powered water features with battery backup; this means that the solar panel will build and hold a charge during sunlight hours so that the feature can continue to work in the evenings when it has become dark, or when the weather is poor. This is a great option for those who are keen to use their water feature all year long. It will state in the product title or description if the feature has battery backup.

  • Can I convert a mains water feature to solar power?

    If you already have a mains-powered water feature and would like to take advantage of the many benefits of solar power, our solar pump kits will enable you to convert it into a solar-powered water feature.

  • What can I pair with a solar water feature?

    Solar-powered water features are a stylish addition to any garden. Because you don’t have to rely on mains power, you can place your fairy solar water feature wherever you think it will look its best.

    Perhaps place it next to an ornamental tree or among some atmospheric garden lighting. We have everything you need to create your magical fairy garden.

  • What are the key benefits of solar water features?

    When it gets enough direct sunlight, a solar water feature can be a great addition to your garden. Not only do fairy water features look beautiful, but the sound of flowing water is a great way to relax while ​​adding personality to your space.

    By opting for a solar-powered feature, you will be saving on running costs and emitting any sort of gas or fume from your installation. They are also easy to move as they aren’t connected to mains.

    We also have solar-powered fairy water features with lights for that extra special touch.

  • Do solar-powered water features work on cloudy days?

    Because our solar-powered water features are driven by the energy of the sun, if it is a cloudy day, it might operate with less power than if it was a sunny day. Some products have a battery backup to overcome the inevitable cloudy days we have in the UK. 

    The same can apply to winter days – as there are fewer anticipated sunny days in the colder months, it might run slowly or stop altogether. If this is something you’re concerned about, simply choose a solar water feature with battery backup.
