Would like a water feature, but don't have electricity in the garden. Does anyone know how good the solar powered ones are please. Have seen a couple on internet I like but wonder on how well they perform.
Hi scroggin, I wanted a small ornamental feature to stand next to the patio. I don't have a pond although I would like one?....perhaps i should and that would be the water feature!!
Ooh scroggin, you're making my wish list even longer, lol
In my opinion solar powered are not that effective as normally the water feature will be quite small in design and can become lost on a patio area if the area is a normal sized. Why don't you arrange to have water resistant socket outlet that are quite easy and cheap to have installed. This will then give you more choice in the type and size of water feature you will be able to have. The cables can normally be run underground through some hosepipe from protection
i got mine fitted by a qualified electrician and cost me £50 including parts
My mum also wants a solar powered water feature, she simply doesn't want to have electricity put in. I also wondered if anyone has tried the solar power ones? She would be happy with a little trickle rather than a fountain.
We didn't want to dig up the patio to put the cable in the ground. Didn't think you could have a socket without having the cable go underneath.
want a very large feature, but did wonder how effective they were
I thought it said Sofa - powered water feature must get some new glasses!!!
If you look on Amazon there's lots of solar powered garden water features etc - have a look and read the reviews - they persuaded me that the technology isn't advanced enough yet.
