A solar fountain is an attractive addition to any pond. Just as the name implies, the sun, with the help of a specially designed pump, powers a solar fountain. It not only adds beauty to a garden, but it also saves the considerable cost of electricity involved in running a fountain pump, and eliminates the safety concern of electrical cords.
Additionally, the solar fountain, unlike fountains that require electrical outlets, can be placed anywhere in the yard. Its solar aspect makes it comparatively maintenance free as well. About the only concern is inclement weather. For instance, The pump must be disconnected if the weather is below freezing, to prevent irreparable damage.
