    Hi. I'm new to the group & have a few questions.

    I want to buy a solar fountain for our garden pond.
    Has anyone any recommendations? (I'm in the UK.)

    Will the fountain only work when the panels are in
    full sunlight, or will the panels also be charged in
    cloudy daylight conditions, enough to keep the
    fountain functioning (albeit at a slower speed)?

    TIA.

    Cheers,
    Mona

    if you add a battery, and the panel is big enough to produce more juice than
    the pump needs, the battery will keep the pump moving during short cloudy
    periods. how short depends on the amp hour of the battery and the wattage of
    the panel compared to the wattage of the pump.
