Solar floating lights can be a good option when you have a decorative pond in your garden or a swimming pool in your back yard. Highlighting your water features at night creates a special atmosphere that’s quite magical.
Flood lights and spotlights can do a good job, but solar floating lights definitely add extra charm to the scene
Decorative solar lights are an easy and relatively inexpensive way to dress up your pond, fountain or pool for special occasions (even if the special occasion is staying home alone for some peace and quiet for a change).
Usually, like solar yard lights they are designed with built-in solar panels and photocells, so they will automatically turn on as dusk falls. They are small enough and light weight enough (from 4 to 25 inches wide, but less than a pound) that you can easily put them in a sunny location that gets full sun all day in order to charge them up for 8 hours of night time illumination.
LED lights will last for years without having to be replaced. Solar floating lights come in lots of different colors (red, white, amber, green, and blue), so you can mix and match to fit your outdoor living room color scheme. Solar pond lights come in flat disk shapes or round spheres, so you can decide which style and size is the best fit for your water feature.
Solar floating lights have many more uses than just looking pretty in the water
If you’re having a party that includes a punch bowl or a large tub of ice water to chill beverages, you may float a colorful solar light so that everyone will know where the drinks are located. Once you start thinking of places to use them, your creativity will run wild. Before you know it, you’ll be bringing them with you into your hot tub or bubble bath.
