There are a few things you need to level the ground before you can start building your solar water fountain. The first thing you need to do is find a level spot in your yard. If you don’t have a level spot, you can use a shim to level the ground.
Next, you need to remove any obstacles from the area where you will level to level the ground. Be sure to remove any rocks or roots that might be in the way.
After you have leveled the ground and made it suitable for the flower pot or planter place it in the ground and make sure it’s stable and doesn’t move or shake.
To make your pump use solar power and be completely eco-friendly, you will just use some photovoltaic cells which will convert the sunlight into energy the pump will use to work. All you have to do is to connect the power source of the pump to some solar cells using some wires or in most cases, a solar pump comes connected to solar cells and is ready to go.
Now all you have to do is to put the solar pump in the water and connect the tubes to the water so the pump can work properly.
We recommend using a flat flower planter or pot so there is a base the pump can stay on. If you are using a deeper pot you can use some galvanized wires or strings and attach them to the pump and the pot so the pump stays on top and steady.
Finally, fill your container with water and place the solar panel in a spot where it will get plenty of sunlight. Now set back and enjoy the view.
Bonus tip: if you really want to add a beautiful view to your garden, you can use some small r rocks around your home or garden and put them in a flat ceramic planter around the water pump. This will give a very charming view of water running through the rocks. Just make sure the rocks aren’t blocking the pump and you are ready to go.
