What are Swell Solar Fountain Pumps?
The Swell Solar Powered Deluxe Fountain pumps are multi-functional pumps designed to create extravagant water patterns and water circulation for oxygenation; perfect for large ponds, pools and garden features. Powered by two DC solar panels which need to be placed directly facing the sun for maximum performance. The pumps can also be run off a solar battery back-up for when sun energy is not an option. An LED light ring sits just underneath the water spray adding to the overall look especially at night with an option of 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.
How does the solar battery back-up work?
As the weather can be unpredictable this helpful piece of equipment will store solar energy so you can still use the fountain on overcast days or at the night time. The input power is stored from what the panel collects during the day. However you can also use a DC power supply to charge it if you need too. The battery back up is protected from over charging and over discharging and includes a timer so you can set the fountain to run off it.
What happens if they stop?
The pumps included in these larger sets can filter out larger particles of debris protecting the fountain from blocking up. They also feature dry run protection where the two sensors on the inside of the pump will only allow the unit to start once full submerged. You should clean the pump regularly to prevent the pump from being clogged with dust and dirt. The latest DC brushless motor technology has also been incorporated into the design and manufacturing so the pump has high efficiency and a long service life.
