Add a bit of finesse to your pond with your own outdoor solar spray fountain. This Solar Pump pushes or sprays water up to 36" high. It is perfect for outdoor ponds and birdbaths or you can make your own solar water fountain. 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.
