Editor's Notes

August 21, 2019:

When evaluating the best pond lights we looked at submersible and floating options. Usually one thinks of a pond light as something you set and forget, but there are festive solar and battery-operated floating options that are a good choice if you don't want to worry about running power to your pond.

In fact, you could install a submersible, white light for everyday use like the Atlantic Water Gardens SOL Ring that you won't have to fiddle with once installed. When you want to have a little fun you can add some color and movement with the inexpensive Ubegood 4-Pack.

The Biling Solar took the top spot for providing the best of everything, good-sized solar panel so you don't have to deal with burying cords, plus there's either a white or RGB option.

We decided to include the Jebao 50w Halogen even though the bulbs will burn out much faster than LEDs, for homeowners who prefer that golden warm glow and are not satisfied with the LED version of warm white. When you buy these multi-light sets they come at a low price per unit if they need to be replaced.
