Answered

My wife want to run power from our house to a garden fountain because price is no object when she is not paying, however I would rather eat.

Can any body tell me about a good solar panel to move a small amount of water but not just a trickle....or any other ideas?


TIA

    Some foutian pumps come with solar panels...the thing is they don’t repositon them selves as the sun goes across the sky And ther are small. You can try a “battery maintainer “ it’s a square solor pannel with jumper cables Attatched. The panel collects the energy, the battery stores it, and the pump uses it.

    I’ve used solar fountain pumps, they need to be in a real sunny area. the battery maintainer has been on my truck more times than I care to talk about, and a set of 4 longer taller panels suply power to the battery in my camper,
