    This weekend I purchased and installed two BECKET solar powered air pumps to keep some water movement in my two small out door tortoise pools. (About 7 to 15 gallons)
    These are sold by Home Depot at around $40 each and consist of a solar panel, wiring, pump. hose and air stone. Truly a 5 minute job! .
    Even though the sun was not out and it was lightly raining all weekend, the pumps put out enough air to keep the water moving pretty well.
    It seems anything made by Becket is good stuff and this is no exception.
    I see that online there are also solar powered filter/pumps.
    A true option for tortoise pens not near an electrical outlet.

    Updates from the pen...They have been very reliable..
    The pools are empty because they're being cleaned.
