Non-solar, non-mains power in the garden? Answered
Looking for advice on low-tech ways of solving a prob, hope someone can help.
I really want to create a very small waterfall in my mini-garden, maybe 6” at the most.
I can’t use solar power, as my tiny garden only gets about an hour or so of direct sun around noon (I found out that less then direct sun doesn‘t work; I have a floor-standing 4-bowl cascade that stops the instant a shred of cloud gets in the way).
I can’t have mains electricity outside, partly because most of the area is paved and I can’t get the cables safely out of the way; I could get cable around the wall, but it’d have to go round three walls to get it where I need it, and I’m not sure about having the cable overhead.
I’ve been searching for some time for some kind of power-pack that I could charge up on the mains, then plug into the feature; I don’t think household batteries would run for very long, I was thinking of something with a bit more punch.
Either they don’t make anything like this, or I’ve not yet been able to find the right keywords to track it down; I get untold pages of “solar power” options.
So, basically, people, I’m asking: is there such a thing, or anything that would solve my prob? I’d have to buy a tiny pump and all the rest of the stuff, but if I can’t power it, what’s the point?
I’m visually impaired, so intricate work is out of the question;
I’m not so much low-tech as no-tech; my only power tool is a small cordless drill/screwdriver; I’m not confident about messing with electricity
I live in rented accommodation so I can’t do too much to the structure (ie get the paving lifted and cables put under them, or even running round the walls)
