Sometimes it’s impossible to get mains power to your pond. Most solar pumps are pretty weak and won’t be suitable to run a full pond filter system. However, there are now complete solar kits that are pretty easy to set up and can power many appliances including pond pumps.

Below is a video showing how I built a solar powered pond using a solar kit. I had no previous experience with setting up solar.

On this page, you’ll find links to solar pond kits, like the one I used to set up my solar pond. I’ve also linked some small solar pumps that can be used to add water movement to ponds.

If you think a kit is too hard, take a look at the other video on this page on how to set up a filterless pond. I hope it helps.
