You asked for it, and we delivered!
Customer satisfaction is our top priority so when you told us you were disappointed with solar fountains that wouldn't hold a charge, we went looking for some that did. Unlike other solar fountains that only run when the sun is shining, these new fountains with revolutionary Solar-on-Demand technology work when you want them to. The solar panel on this fountain stores energy so you can run it when it's cloudy or even at night. We're very excited to be the only ones to offer you this fantastic product, and we hope you'll love it as much as we do. Dimensions: 20L x 20W x 32H inches. Product weight: 23 lbs.
About this fountain
Bring a beautiful and eco-friendly fountain to your garden, and enjoy its soothing water all season long. The Smart Solar Kensington Gardens 2-Tier Solar Bird Bath Fountain features two tiers of water - plenty of it to provide birds a fresh place to bathe and drink. This fountain is weather-resistant and maintenance-free. No cracking, no rotting from the elements. And thanks to its built-in solar panels, this fountain requires no batteries or electricity to pump water through its tiers. It's finished in an antique weathered white, which will provide a lovely contrast to your green garden area. An excellent choice to go green and enjoy water and your feathered friends.
Note: Do not use with heater. Do not use in freezing temperatures.
Special Note: The regular solar version bird baths and fountains require plenty of direct sunlight to operate properly. Please be sure to have a sunny spot to place your bath or fountain. Also, the pump must never be operated dry (out of water). Dry operation permanently damages the pump. This fountain offers "Solar On Demand" to choose as an option with or without this feature. Both options are solar operated, but the Solar On Demand feature attached to the inner workings gives you the ability to control the solar operation, so the fountain will operate as you select, with solar saved energy to use in evenings without sunlight. Dimensions: 15.7L x 15.7W x 30H inches.
About Solar-on-Demand technology
With Smart Solar's Solar-on-Demand technology, you have the ability to control when you would like your Smart Solar fountain to run. The solar unit powers an attached, self-contained battery that features an on/off switch. When the switch is in the 'on' position, the fountain operates as a standard solar fountain. However, when solar energy isn't readily available, instead of shutting off, with Solar-on-Demand, the unit will switch to the back-up battery power. This way, you can enjoy your fountain, rain or shine, without interruption. When light is less available, the system will run on any excess power that has been stored in the battery. When the battery runs out of power, the fountain will shut off until power is readily available again.
When using the unit in 'charge' mode, the fountain will not run during the day, and will instead use all solar energy to charge the battery. This is especially ideal for those who like to have their fountain running at night or who would like to use it for a special occasion at a specific time. It takes about one day of direct sunlight to fully charge the battery. Once the unit is charged, it can be switched to 'on' mode to get it back up and running. With the battery fully charged, the pump will operate for up to six hours.
