Many outdoor water fountains require power to operate, this can be tricky especially when the fountain is not right next to the house and a power supply is far away. Solar powered fountains can solve this problem. There are many sizes and styles of solar water fountains so finding the right fit for your yard is not hard.
Solar fountains come in the traditional birdbath style, but there are also decorative fountains, and tiered fountains. The beauty of these fountains is that they all operate on sun power. They all come with small solar panels that absorb solar energy to power the fountain.
Because these fountains are solar powered most of them do not work when the sun is not out. But some of them have the "Solar On Demand" feature which stores solar energy so that the fountain can work even at night. Typically, they will store between 4-6 hours of energy. They are not sucking up electricity and raising your electric bill by running all day. They have all the beauty of an electric powered fountain but are less expensive to maintain and can be put anywhere the sun shines!
They are usually crafted from a lightweight resin material or ceramic. Because they are lightweight they are easy to move around and don't require a team of strong men, even the heavy fountains are only about 40 pounds.
These fountains will provide the relaxing sound of running water that will help set your mind at ease and relieve stress. Not only will they soothe you, but they look amazing. If you have ever been interested in outdoor water fountains but found it difficult to get power to them now is the time to try out solar water fountains.
