Eco-Friendly Water Fountain Options

Are you looking for eco-friendly fountain options? What exactly does an eco-friendly fountain do? It’s mainly in what it doesn’t do—the benefits that come from using this unique technology. In recent years, more emphasis has been put on green living options. Recycling, energy saving, pollution reduction and planet conversation are all “in”…and not a moment too soon!

One of the most exciting developments in eco-friendly fountains is that of the solar water fountain. These types of fountains do not use electricity of any kind. These fountains are powered exclusively by sunlight. These fountains make use of special panels that are able to convert sunlight into energy. There is a major misconception out there that suggests solar fountains (or any solar product) are expensive. Not so…in fact, these fountains are affordable and very adaptable.

You can adapt them to various yard conditions. These fountains are also available in a variety of colors and styles. Some fountains attract birds while others are very colorful in nature. Besides solar water fountains there are also bamboo fountains. Like solar fountains these are environmentally friendly. Bamboo grows very rapidly, unlike most trees, since it is actually a grass. Bamboo is one of the most eco-friendly materials one can use in construction. There are a variety of outdoor and indoor bamboo fountains, in tabletop variety, floor, garden or wall-mounted style.

Of course, one should realize that a solar fountain and bamboo fountain (and really any other type of wall-mounted fountain) is an eco-friendly creation in its own right. These fountains usually use minimal energy—about as much as it takes to power up a table lamp. These fountains have the ability to re-circulate the water repeatedly and need more water only on a periodic basis. (This is due to the effects of evaporation)

Using solar water fountains or bamboo fountains is a great way to feel close to nature and to minimize pollution. Remember, when you use solar fountains you improve the quality of your air, increase the humidity in the room and provide a nice, soothing environment for yourself and your guests.

The best fountains to buy, if ecology is your main concern, are solar water fountains that re-circulate their water. The dedicated fountains get their water from a pipeline and this can be seen as a bit wasteful by environmental activists. Getting a re-circulation type fountain carries no disadvantages.

Buying a solar water fountain and other eco-friendly systems is a nice way to improve the look and feel of your home.
