What's the benefit of using
There are many! First and foremost, solar power is so simple, all
you have to do is to connect the panel to the pump, and away you
go! There is no need to call in an electrician - otherwise essential,
as electricity and water are a dangerous combination. Solar Power
is safe for children and pets - no trailing cables or need for circuit
breakers. It also means you can site features in nooks and crannies
- no need to worry where your mains supply is. And finally - of
course - Solar Power is the 'green' option - care for your planet
whilst enhancing your garden.
Why do you need a solar solution for your
Do you like to hire an electrician for special AC connection
for your outdoor fountain? Do you think 110V or 220V electrical
cables of traditional fountain are safe for your kids playing in
the garden? Do you like to dig up the yard to install wiring for
your traditional water fountain?
If your answers to above questions are "No", you really need
a solar pumped fountain for your garden or pond, which needs no
running costs and no unsightly or dangerous cables. The solar fountain
is very user friendly (all fountain kits come with easy connection)
and takes only minutes to install, and boosts the oxygen in your
solar fountain solution presents
a really attractive feature for your garden or pond at a competitive
What is solar power?
Put most simply, Solar Power is a way of converting sunlight,
the most abundant energy source on the planet directly into electricity,
via a small solar panel (PV cells), which collects the light and
stores it for use. The equipment required for this process has no
moving parts and as a result requires minimal maintenance. In addition,
the electricity is generated with no emissions and no noise. When
the cell is exposed to light, electrical charges are generated and
this can be conducted away by metal contacts as direct current (DC).
Are solar power systems safe?
Yes. Solar cells, or Photovoltaic (PV) cells are made of silicon
(Silicon is the primary component of sand). There is no exhaust
and no toxic materials to leak out of the system. The electricity
generated from PV cells is just like the electricity coming from
household wall sockets. All components of our solar fountain solution
have been tested carefully before delivery.
What are the benefits of using Solar Power for fountain feature?
There are many! First of all, solar cells (Photovoltaic technology) directly convert abundant sunlight into electricity. The process is considered a very environment-friendly electricity generation because there is no fuel or cooling required, no emissions and no noise. Solar power is so simple - when setting up a fountain, all you have to do is just to connect the solar panel to the solar pump, and away you go! There is no need to call in an expensive electrician - otherwise essential, as electricity and water is a dangerous combination. Solar Power is safe for your kids and pets - no trailing cables, or need for circuit breakers.
Does solar fountain or solar pump kit need sunshine?
Yes, our solar fountain and solar pump kit need sunshine. The electrical output of photovoltaic (PV) cell is dependent upon the intensity of the light to which it is exposed. So PV cells will tend to generate more electricity on bright days than when skies are overcast. However, PV cells do not need to be in direct sunlight to work, so even on overcast days a PV cell will be generating some electricity. As PV cell provided by us is very efficient and effective, so the solar fountain sometimes run even in drizzly weather.
Will solar fountain or solar pump kit function well in the winter?
Yes, as long as it's not freezing in the fountain statue or pond. In a freezing case, any solar pump must be disconnected; otherwise it may try to work in the ice when receiving a light of sunshine. You can plug it again when it's nice, because solar fountains and solar pump kits will work just as well on a sunny day in January as they do in the summer.
Is solar pump better than a mains pump?
Of course, solar fountain or solar pump kit are much safer and simpler. With solar technology, you don't need to dig your beautiful yard just to bury dangerous cables. With solar technology you dare to let your kids and pets play in your garden because of no dangerous combination of water and electricity. You just put the solar pump in the water, set the solar panel toward the sun, plug them together - and away it goes, totally in just a few minutes.
Is solar brushless motor pump better than traditional solar diaphragm motor pump?
Of course, solar brushless motor pump is much more reliable and run more steadily than traditional solar diaphragm motor pump. Solarkey
proprietary solar brushless pump (used for fountain purpose) is the biggest breakthrough since traditional solar diaphragm motor pump. We offer 5 years warranty for our solar brushless motor pump and 10 years warranty for its attaching solar panel.
1. Reliable and maintenance-free brushless DC motor in solar brushless pump has no failure-prone carbon brush and shaft seal, ensuring robust long service life of solar pump.
2. No damage if impeller jams and extremely quiet operation thanks to the ceramic axis in brushless DC motor in solar brushless pump.
How long does the solar fountain or solar pump kit last?
Solar panel, or photovoltaic (PV) cell collects the sunlight and converts it into electricity. The equipment required for this process has no moving parts and as a result requires minimal maintenance. Our warranty is one of the best in the industry because we are a leading manufacturer to design, build and install durable, trouble-free solar fountains. Confidence in our product is represented in our warranty to you. We supply our high quality solar panels with a 10 years guarantee. Our solar brushless pumps (used both for fountain purpose and well pumping purpose) always come with a 5 years guarantee.
Can the solar pump be used in irrigation for farming?
Our solar pumps are a low-flow type for the private home sector, not for water supply in field. But it is possible to connect it with a drip irrigation system for irrigating small gardens or fields, depending on the plant sort, sun intensity and the deepness of the water-level.
How to install the solar fountain or solar pump kit?
solar fountain or solar pump kit have been designed to use for fountain or waterfall feature. The pump derives its power directly from a solar module. In order for the pump to operate in best performance, the solar panel needs to be placed in direct sunlight. The performance of the pump depends on the season and the position of the solar module.
2. Place the pump underwater making sure that when the pump operates, it is fully immersed underwater.
3. Please note: When first used, there may be air in the pump. It can take up to 5 minutes for the air to escape.
Can the pump run in a high temperature water?
The application haven't been tested yet. Some dealers have already used this pump on open solar thermal systems for water supply. As long as the circulating water temperature is not over 60 degrees and the difference of the daily's temperature between hot and cold water is not over 40 degree, there is no problem.
