What are Swell Solar Fountain Pumps?
The Swell Solar Powered 150 lph Fountain pump is a multi-functional pump designed to create small elegant water patterns and water circulation for oxygenation; perfect for bird baths, fish tanks, small ponds, pools and garden features. Powered by a 1.5w DC solar panel which needs to be placed directly facing the sun for maximum performance. The pumps can also be run off rechargeable batteries on an AC/DC adapter for when sun energy is not an option. An adjustable flow rate feature gives you additional options on the spray power and 3 different spray heads.
What are the benefits of Solar Powered Pumps?
As many pond owners know running a pond a can be expensive, using solar powered pumps instead of running your pump from the mains means you won't receive any unexpectedly high electricity bills. Once you have the panel set up correctly, all the energy you need comes from the sun and is completely free. Be sure to keep your solar panels clean to keep them producing as much energy as possible.
What happens if they block?
If you notice the flow has slowed down you can simply pull the pump apart and rinse out any dirt from the pre-filter section at the bottom, this section also includes a small piece of re-usable foam to provide additional protection for the pump. You should clean the pump regularly to prevent the pump from being clogged with dust and dirt.
What heights can they reach?
The 150 LPH fountain pump can reach heights between 1.3 - 2.3 Feet, depending on what you have the flow rate adjusted too.
