Sunnydaze Old Fashioned Water Pump with Barrel Solar-on-Demand Fountain

The Old Fashioned Water Pump with Barrel Solar on Demand Fountain brings the nostalgia and charm of simple country living to your home garden.

The Solar on Demand fountain works with either solar or battery power when it is turned on.  With sufficient sunlight the pump is powered by solar energy.

The battery pack is recharged via solar energy. So, when it is a cloudy day or at night, the battery automatically powers the fountain.

When the batteries are charged to capacity, they will run the fountain for up to 4 hours.

In order to work on battery mode just press the Battery On/Off button. The battery will then power the pump.  

Once the batteries are depleted, the system will automatically switch power consumption to the solar panel, so the fountain will resume running once the sun returns.

If you have a special occasion where you wanted the fountain 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 fountain in the evening simply turn the pump on and the fountain will run until the battery is depleted.

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.

Note: LEDs only work at night and will turn on/off automatically; Each fountain may vary in color as no two are exactly the same color.
