Solar pond lights are inexpensive, very convenient and safe. They add the lush beauty that you’re looking for to your pond.
Solar lighting has gone through a lot of improvements in recent years, and the advantages of using decorative solar lights for your pond cannot be understated. First, it instantly enhances the look and atmosphere of your pond incredibly – giving it a more elegant and soft feel at night. Second, the use of traditional battery lights can be harmful to the environment and a pain to charge or replace. Electric lights can run up your electric bill unreasonably, not to mention the extra hassle and risks associated with bulbs and electricity.
Solar pond lights are housed in a waterproof case and basically float on the surface of the water, drawing in the sun’s energy throughout the day. This is done through the solar cells located on the top of the lights. During the day, the solar energy that is drawn in recharges the batteries inside, and when night arrives the LED lights turn on automatically (due to a light sensor located in the waterproof casing) The solar lights can stay on for up to 10 hours, giving you an elegant lighting all night. Electrical lights would cost you lot of money if you had to have them on for that amount of time.
Solar pond lights come in various sizes, shapes and colors
Shapes range from flowers to frogs and other animals or insects.
Many of these solar floating lights actually change color as well – from red to green, or to blue, or to white. Some also have built in loops at the bottom, so that you can tie or weight the lights down. The LED bulbs (Light Emitting Diode) have a usual lifespan of up to 100,000 hours, which means they provide you years of enjoyment.
Solar pond lights are convenient in more ways than just their cost effectiveness
They are free from hassle when it comes to installation and upkeep. They are completely safe around children and pets, and so they can be used in a number of different kinds of ponds for your house – whether it is a Koi pond, a duck pond, or any type of water feature.
They are also available in many designs, therefore ideal for small or big ponds. Bigger floating solar lights can be a great add-on to your swimming pool. Solar fountains can also a great addition to your pond.
