It is self contained, so simply add water to get the feature running. It has been finished with an integrated LED light that brings the feature to life at night. It will beautifully illuminate the water that bubbles out from the top of the sphere. A film of water cascades down and over the sphere to cover it completely, providing a constantly changing mirrored reflection.Grade 304 is a high quality steel with excellent corrosion resistance. It ensures the strength of the sphere and it will not rust.
The shiny surface of stainless steel reflects light beautifully, which works wonderfully when combined with the running water and LED lights. LED lights create a truly memorable spectacle at night. The lights are situated at the highest central point where the water bubbles out, before cascading around the sphere. Solar Panel with Battery Back Up.

The traditional way to install a water feature is to connect it to your main power supply, although solar powered water features are a great option, there are also benefits to choosing a mains powered feature. Power is better to effectively run larger water features.
These tend to have higher energy requirements, so a mains connection is required for reliable usage. Solar powered features are great for smaller features and birdbaths as they usually require less power. Mains powered water features allow for prolonged use. Solar panels only last as long as they have stored up power and will only work if there is good weather. Mains powered water features will work in any weather and in limited sunlight.
Tips on Installation and Maintenance. A lot of water features come pre-assembled for the most part, with just a little hose/pump connecting to do before plugging it in to a mains socket. Some of our bigger ones require wiring in a plug (which might involve a Part P Certified electrician), but otherwise all instructions will be included. To create our high specification, long-lasting water features, we use 304-grade stainless steel which contains high levels of chromium making it resistant to corrosion.Stainless steel is very resistant to rust because the chromium in the metal reacts with oxygen to form a protective layer. If this layer is broken down by mechanical damage or a powerful cleaning agent and rust does appear, simply remove the rust and the chromium oxide layer will reform.
As well as it's hard-wearing features, grade 304 stainless steel is perfect for both contemporary and classical water feature designs, the highly polished finish of stainless steel is great for reflecting light into shaded areas of the garden. If the feature has a reservoir that requires sinking underground, then the ground can be marked out to the exact size using perhaps a stick, gravel or sand. Sit the reservoir in the hole and make sure it is level. If you have enough room sit the pump on a flat stone so that it is not on the bottom of the reservoir and so helping the pump stay clear.
Why do some Water Features come without a plug? We don't always supply a plug with a water feature, it depends on the product, style of feature, pump supplied and likely location that the product maybe installed.
All of our products are designed for ease of installation there are however, a specific set of rules set out by the building regulations which must be adhered too: "Building Regulations - Part P" this is a government directive which states that any NEW PERMANENT household or garden electrical supply must be installed by a competent Part P Certified electrician. Some of our products wont require a permanent installation, its worth considering a number of things in order to ensure you safely install your feature or seek the help and advice of a qualified electrician. Where are you going to place your product? Is there available power in the garden?- Outdoor sockets for example. Will it permanently be in this location? Do you have existing power in the garden near the location. If in any doubt seek the advice of a Part P Certified electrician.
