Make your own outdoor solar fountain. This Solar Pump pushes or sprays water up to 36" high it is perfect for outdoor ponds and birdbaths. You can also make your own solar fountain as this will push water up a tube about 36".
This pump can operate on solar and battery power when set to the on position! In good sunlight conditions, the pump will be powered by solar energy. In addition, the battery pack will be recharged via solar energy. If it is a cloudy day or night time the battery will automatically run the pump. If fully charged, the batteries will power the pump for up to 4 hours. When the batteries are depleted, the system will automatically switch to be powered by the solar panel, and the pump will resume running when the sun come out.
If you have a special occasion where you wanted the pump to run only in the evening this can be done too. During the day set the pump to the off position. Under this option the battery will store the power and not run. When you want to run the pump in the evening simply turn the pump on and the pump will run until the battery is depleted.
Note: LEDs only work at night and will turn on/off automatically
The solar kit comes with a 6V-9V DC brushless pump with a 16' cable. The 2W solar panel, included in this kit, can be placed within 16' of the pump, this allows you to place the panel in the perfect location for maximum sun light. A ground spike is provided to mount the solar panel on if needed. The panel must be in direct sunlight for the pump and battery to run and charge the best.
The fountain head has 8 spray head options. You select which spray design is best for you.
Water flow is 65 GPH with maximum spray head of 36". The pump comes with adapters so you can make your own waterfall or convert an electric fountain to a solar run fountain. The pump and adapters fit the inside diameter of a hose of 1/4" ,3/8" or 1/2". If you connect to a 1/4" diameter hose the head is 36", head is 27" if a 3/8" hose and head is 18" if a 1/2" hose.
The battery generally lasts between 12-18 months, but with repeated charges and discharge cycles the battery will become less efficient and battery capacity may reduce. If the battery does appear less efficient you may try and boost charge it. In order to boost charge the battery you must leave 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. Contact us for replacement batteries.
This kit comes with two 16' cables for the pump and LED light to connect to the solar panel. For an additional purchase, you can add a 16' cable extension pack for your pump and LED light, giving you 32 feet for placement of your solar panel.
