I have found that it is very expensive to get elctricity to the pond site so I was wondering if there was such a thing as a pond pump that ran on batteries and if so where can I get one. thanks
Fishkeeping is not just keeping fish in tanks, it is an art, a science, and a way of life.

If they make them, don't buy it.

Why would you trouble yourself with changing batteries, risking them corroding underwater, dieing on you. etc.

If you don't feel like spending the money to run electricity out to an outdoor pond then you have not really looked at the possibilities, You can run a cable out your pond pretty easily, you could just run a basic outdoor extension cord to your pond and go from there, or you can just do the same thing and bury it in the ground with a PVC pipe, they make outdoor surge protectors with extra sockets that plug into a normal extension cord that would be a pretty cheap alternative to hiring a professional to run electricity out to a pond. But If I were you I would spring for the extra money, electricity is one thing you don't want done shotty. You can have all types of problems with shotty electronics, so I suggest just get it done right the first time and forget about it.
