Solar Powered Pond (150L)
Solar power is a brilliant way to save money and help the environment. This is why we have introduced a solar-powered pond. A pond that can be set up and powered by solar panels. This simple kit is made up of one of our preformed pond liners and a solar powered pond pump. Place your pump in your pond and place the panels in a suitable place close by and in direct sunlight. The panels absorb the sun making the motor run in the pump providing your pump with adequate filtration.
The pond liner
The liner used measures up at 48″ (122 cm) long, 24″ (61 cm) wide, 12″ (30 cm) deep and holds 33 Gallons (litres 149) of water. It weighs 5 kgs when empty. This pond is suitable for keeping a small number of small fish. We recommend an inch and a half in total length of fish for this pond. Do some research on the best types of fish to keep in smaller ponds. We recommend keeping the pond in the shade and the solar panel in direct sunlight. We suggest keeping the pond in shade as the liner will absorb the sun and heat the water making the water unsuitable for fish.
Please be advised this rectangular pond liner needs support which isn’t shown in the pictures or video. We advise you support the liner as without support over a long period of time the liner will misshapen. The solar powered pond looks best when it is dug into the ground however if you can’t do this try supporting with a wooden surround. You can use anything you like as long as it is supporting the sides and taking the pressure off.
The solar powered pond pump
Cable tie the pond pump to a brick (make sure the brick is clean so you don’t contaminate the pond water) so it sits firmly at the bottom of the pond and is at the perfect height for the fountain head to poke out of the water. Max flow of the pump is 180L/H. Solar panel size is 110mm x 110mm x 25mm. The pond pump needs maintenance just check once a month ideally more in autumn when more foliage falls. The bottom of the pump simply comes off and the filter which catches the waste just needs cleaning. This shouldn’t take more than a couple of minutes.

Just had my 7200 litre Kio pond delivered today and am very impressed with it. The delivery man was very helpful and helped me to lift it over my outhouse as that was the only way to get it in to my back garden.
So a big thank you to him for all his help.
Would recommend Ponds 4 Fish for there help and service.
Great pond liner.
I had never created a pond before. But this makes it so straightforward. It looks great, and I added a solar fountain to keep the water oxygenated. Very pleased. Picture or video available if you want to see! It’s good enough to make me want to add another one to the garden – maybe two!
