As gardens are often seen as a great place we can design and set out as tranquil escapes from the daily grinds of everyday life, the addition of a pond will always be a good thing. Whether you are planning a new pond or just looking to add to an existing one, you will probably be looking at the different accessories and appliances there are out there that you can use to keep your pond clean, oxygenated and pleasing on the eyes. Although this is not a proper pond pump, in the traditional sense of the definition, this solar direct-driving pump is still worth speaking about, as it is a nice addition to your pond, bird bath or outdoor fountain.
Why Should You Consider This Mini Fountain Pump?
It should be pointed out that this is in no way shape or form an alternative to a proper pond pump. If you are looking for a full-size pump for a pond, there are other more appropriate products reviewed here. However, if you are looking for a quirky and attractive feature to add to an outdoor birdbath or fountain or simply as an interesting floating feature for your pond. It will not help to keep the pond aerated and will not help to clean it out, but it will just provide a nice display.
If you are constantly looking to reduce your carbon footprint and electricity bills, then this solar-powered feature may suit you. It is not powered by a mains adaptor and is not powered by a battery. It is powered simply by the 16 cm solar panel on the pump. Once fully immersed in water, it will produce a flow and height of water depending on the amount of sunlight and solar energy. Therefore, if the sunlight is strong enough, the pump will start to work and will keep the fountain running; whereas if the sunlight is not as strong, it will stop and start repeatedly. The maximum flow rate this solar driven pump is capable of at peak is 200 litres per hour and it is capable of producing a height of 1.1 metres.

We wanted to feature this particular pump because it was a little bit quirky and for the price, it could be worth it if you are looking to decorate your pool, pond or another body of water on your property with an easy to use and hassle-free fountain.
