Adding garden solar fountains to your yard or garden will transform the space from dull and boring to a backyard paradise. Solar-powered fountains are a smart investment for several reasons. They do not cost a lot. They come in an all-in-one kit. They use solar energy, which is free. They recycle the water, so all that needs doing aside from setting it up is filling it with water. Turn the fountain on and watch the area come alive with the sight and sound of serenity. They offer a place for a bird habitat that for bird watchers is sheer delight.
Installing A Solar Fountains
Installing these solar fountains is easy. There is no need to run electric lines (unless you want to use an AC converter to keep the fountain running during times when the sunlight is scarce, like rainy seasons.) They come in a box kit that is easy to set up, by placing the solar panel out in direct sunlight. Depending on the fountain, the solar panel may be on top or hooked to a ten-foot cable. The solar panel collects the sunlight and then converts it into power to run the fountain.
Maintaining the garden fountains is really easy. Because the water is continuously recycled through the filter, the fountain stays fairly clean. An occasional wipe down with a towel is all that may be needed. If the fountain is not able to run twenty-four hours a day, there may be a slight build-up of algae. If this occurs, a little extra scrubbing will properly clean the unit. If a towel does not fully work, a soft brush is useful to loosen the algae and lime deposits. Be sure to change completely the water, because fresh clean water will help the fountain to stay cleaner longer.
Garden solar fountains should be placed in an area that will receive as much direct sunlight as possible. If the area is shaded any during the day, or if the climate is rainier, the fountain will not run 24 hours a day. The less it runs, the more likely it will become dirty and need scrubbing. Keeping the fountain in direct sunlight gives the best results. The fountains can be set in among beautiful flower gardens, where full sunlight pours through each day. Add a bird feeder nearby to encourage birds to stop by and drink.
Adding garden solar fountains to the yard and garden will add to the curb appeal of the property. They look good for both residential and commercial properties. The fountains will do well anywhere direct sunlight hits. They add beauty to the scenery, the bubbling water is soothing to hear, and they offer a type of bath and drink for all types of wild birds. Solar-powered fountains are safe to have around children and pets because all the components are self-contained. The fountains will last for years as long as they receive proper care, which as mentioned above, is easy to do.
Safety for Garden Fountains
Whether you’re installing a garden fountain in your home or business, it’s important to consider safety, in particular, if it will be in an area where there are children. You can consider Decking and Railing to provide stylish protection around your fountain.
If you’re considering installing a fountain with a significant depth, it could be important to consider including safety features.
On the other hand, if the fountain you’re installing is primarily decorative with a shallow depth then a safety measure might not be necessary.
