do not have to be an environmentalist to appreciate the benefits of
fountain. One of the most obvious benefits is the lack
of power that it draws from your household electric system. This means
that you can have the beautiful flow of water of a fountain in your
garden without having to pay heightened electricity bills (it also
means that you are not contributing any extra to the use of nonrenewable
resources and pollution).
Another benefit of not connecting to your household
electric is that you can place your solar fountain just about anywhere
that the sun shines. This means that you can place it in the far reaches
of your yard, even if there is no outlet there - you do not have to
pay an electrician to come and dig up your yard just so that you can
have a water feature where you most desire to have it.
While there are some solar fountains that will continue
to work well (even on cloudy or overcast days), if you want your fountain
to work at night, you want to be sure that the manufacturer of your
fountain specifies that it will run at night. Basically, a solar fountain
that can run at night has a rechargeable battery to store the energy
gathered from the solar panels.
