Assembling a Ceramic Solar Cascade Water Feature
Ceramic solar cascades are by far our most popular solar powered water feature. Each bowl is handmade from ceramic, painted and then glazed at high temperatures.
Assembling the solar cascade could not be easier. Simply remove all the parts from the packaging. Connect together the metal frame which supports the ceramic bowls. Begin by placing the larger bowl at the bottom of the fountain. This bowl will house all the water and also the pump used to power the fountain. From there work up the fountain placing each bowl onto its perch positioned so that the water when running will flow into the bowl below and so on.
One end of the tube which pumps water from the bottom bowl to the vase at the top of the cascade has a bung attached. This bung needs to be placed into the base of the vase forming a watertight seal.
Now you need to connect the other end of the tube to the pump. The final stage is to simply connect the ground spike to the solar panel and thats it. your new Solar Cascade Water Feature is complete and ready to be placed into your garden.
Ideally the solar panel with ground spike needs to be positioned in a part of the garden which gets the most sunlight.
Our ceramic solar cascades are also available in Red and Blue.
A few useful tips...
During warmer days the water will soon evaporate so keep the fountain topped up. By using a watering can you can simply pour water back into the bowl at the bottom of the fountain.
By placing an additive into the water (which is harmless to birds and animals) this will prevent the fountain from building up algae and general grime. We highly recommend Fountain Fresh which is also produced by Smart Solar.
When the winter falls you need to drain the water from the fountain and either cover with a winter protection cover or ideally just pop the fountain indoors. This will remove the chance of any damage as the temperature drops and means when the spring comes again you can enjoy the beauty of your fountain again.
