How can I safely connect a solar panel directly to a pond or fountain pump? Answered
I want to go totally solar with my pond/fountain pump (no batteries, no house current). How would I safely wire a solar panel to a pump? What do I need to know, such as how to determine a pump size that coordinates with the size of a solar panel, etc. How would I waterproof any wiring going from pump to panel? Can I use existing pump wire or do I need to take apart and rewire the pump? How can I safely disconnect or shut off pump when not in use? Any resources or links anyone knows of that would help me?
