The swirling ridge design at the top directs the water around the top piece into the first basin which spills into the wide bowl below.
Wide enough for birds on both tiers, you can enjoy the natural beauty of water and wildlife.
This Solar On Demand fountain operates on direct sunlight, but has a battery power included which will power the fountain pump on cloudy days.
On the solar powered mode, the fountain will run directly from solar energy; however, the pump will only work in bright and sunny conditions.
To run on battery mode simply press the Battery On/Off button. The battery will now power the pump. 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. A fully charged battery will operate up to 4 hours after the sun goes down.
You can operate it daily using the battery technology for consistent performance even in cloudy conditions, or leave your fountain off, charging the batteries for use when you want it, even at night. A gorgeous, low-maintenance fountain which will complement any area in which it’s placed.

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. 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.
