What are Swell Solar Fountain Pumps?
The Swell Solar Powered Fountain pumps are multi-functional pumps designed to create elegant water patterns and water circulation for oxygenation; perfect for larger ponds, pools and garden features. Powered by a 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 LED light ring sits just underneath the water spray adding to the overall look especially at night with an option of 2 different spray heads and a floating disc optional for deeper ponds.
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.
