This honour really couldn’t have come at a better time, as the Outdoorliving UK team gears up for our busy season. The sales team, headed up by our Managing Director Mike, will be heading off to the Ideal Home Show on 18th March to 3rd April.
We are also launching a revolutionary product to the water feature market, following years of research and development we are proud to offer a very reliable range or solar panels and pumps for our water features. We also have incorporated a back-up device, this enables the water pump to shut off after 3 hours, and this will help prevent the pump from burning out if the reservoir is low on water. We supply our solar water features with 5 metres of cable to you can place your solar panel away from your water feature and position this in the area which gets the best sunlight. The best bit about these pumps is that they fit ANY water feature, so you can buy one when you’re purchasing your water feature or retrofit the kit to a water feature you already have!
If you would like to join us in this really exciting time, our competition to win one of five sets of tickets to the Ideal Home Show starts on Twitter and Facebook on Friday 4th March.

Solar Powered Water Features
The Ideal Home is coming to an end this weekend and we have seen a growing interest from our customer who wanted our solar powered water feature.
Our sales team have noticed when talking to customers; the amount of people that want a water feature but do not have access to an outdoor plug to power it, this makes customers concerned about the cost of having to have an outdoor power socket installed, they also worry about any health and safety issues that can be caused by having an outdoor power socket.
Outdoor Living UK saw the growing demand for solar. We have therefore spent time researching and developing a range of solar products.
As the UK's largest importer of solar water features, we feel that we have a water feature for everyone.
Our solar water feature have censored lights that come on at night. The panels have a battery back up system that stores energy when you are not using your water feature, they also come with a mains facility so that you can charge your solar panel inside using a mains adapter.

Outdoorlivinuk have seen a surge in demand for the range of solar powered water features, the ability for customers to place a water feature anywhere in the garden without the need for wiring for the electricity is really encouraging customers to opt for solar power and of course the power is FREE !!!!
Outdoorlivinguk have been supplying water features in solar power for 8 years but as the demand has increased so has the investment in developing new products, in 2013 Outdoorlivinguk developed a new range of battery back up solar devices with memory functions, so what does this mean…..Well, why we are all busy with our lives and work etc….the solar energy will be stored in the battery back up so you can enjoy your water features when you want to use it and not just when the sun is out. Further more Outdoorlivinguk have incorporated a lighting function so the solar will not only charge the pump but will also charge the power for the lights to work and the lights are even sensored to come on at night. Finally a memory function as well so if you want your water feature to come on at 1500hrs each day then simply press the on button at 1500 and it will come on the same time each day and will automatically stop so the pump does not burn out.
Being launched in August 2013 will be a new solar panel with even more increased performance and this will have not only a battery back up but also the lights facility and also a mains facility. With the mains option you can take the solar panel inside and charge the unit up and then take this outside to enjoy your water feature so even if the sun is not shining.
Outdoorlivinguk take solar very serious and are the most established company supplying solar water features. Not only environmentally friendly but making full use of the sun to supply free power, that has got to be a good thing.
