What are the benefits of Solar Powered Pumps?
Every pond owner knows that running a pond can be expensive and technical, a solar-powered pump avoids both these issues. Just place the solar panel in an area that catches a lot of sun, hook it up to your pump with the 5m power cable and you'll be ready to go. Be sure to keep your solar panel clean to ensure it's collecting as much energy as possible.
How does the solar battery backup work?
British weather can be a challenge for solar-powered pumps but a battery backup will keep your pump working in dark or overcast conditions. The built-in battery backup stores solar energy when in the sun so it can then be used in overcast or dark conditions. You can also use a DC power supply to charge up the battery if there hasn't been enough sunlight to recharge it.
What happens if they get blocked?
If you notice the flow has slowed down, you can simply unscrew and pull the pump apart to 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.
