Named after Churchill's Victorian manor in southeast England, this fountain captures the elegance and resilience of its namesake. Constructed from lightweight, durable poly resin material, this outdoor fountain is self-contained--continuously directing water through the use of solar power.
Made to operate in direct sunlight, this Solar On Demand fountain also has a unique feature of a back up battery power source. On the solar powered mode, the fountain will run directly from solar energy; however, the pump will only work in bright and sunny conditions. On the battery mode, you can power your fountain for up to 4 hours on cloudy days or at night. When the battery power is depleted, the system will automatically change back to solar powered mode and start again when there is sufficient sunlight. You can operate it daily using the battery technology for persistent performance, or leave your fountain off, charging the batteries for use when you want it, even at night. A fully charged battery usually last for up to 4 hours. Also, by the fountain spout are 4 LED lights which will make your water glow when the sun goes down!A lovely way to enjoy an outdoor fountain while using clean energy.
Note: Each fountain may vary in color as no two are exactly the same color.
The battery lifespan generally lasts between 12-18 months, but with repeated charges and discharge cycles the battery capacity will reduce. If the battery does appear less efficient you may then boost charge it by leaving it off for 2-3 sunny days to allow maximum charge to the battery. If the boost charge does not help the battery than you will need to replace it. Open the battery cover on the back of the solar panel and replace the batteries with 4 standard AA size rechargeable batteries.
For an additional purchase, an electric battery charger is also available. If there are several cloudy days in a row where the solar panel cannot recharge the batteries fully, you can unplug the solar panel, bring it inside, and plug it into a standard outlet with this battery charger to recharge the batteries.
