The Smart Solar Portsmouth Solar Bird Bath is still available as a regular solar-powered bird bath, but now you have the option of enhancing it with Solar-on-Demand power! Made with a special mixture of concrete and resin allowing for the stability of concrete without the excessive weight. Dimensions: 18L x 18W x 25H inches. Product weight: 20 lbs. This bird bath fountain offers "Solar On Demand," meaning you can choose whether or not you desire 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.
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.
About this fountain
Birds prefer a fountain over a birdbath like people prefer a shower over a tub. The water looks and feels fresher when it recirculates. The Smart Solar Portsmouth Solar Bird Bath Fountain is the most popular bird sanctuary in the neighborhood. The trickling sound of the fountain soothes nerves and eases your mind, just like those feng shui masters promised. It's perfectly self-contained and low-maintenance, with no plumbing or electricity needed. The solar-powered pump recirculates water through the built-in reservoir. The 2-inch-deep fountain bowl is perfect for frolicking birds and only requires about a gallon of water. Your environmentally conscious friends will be impressed.
Moving water is fresher, naturally resisting mosquitoes and algae. A built-in filter keeps water clear, just clean it every month or so. The included 2-inch extender tube can be added to increase the fountain height. We recommend that you store the bird bath inside during the winter.
Special Note: Solar 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.
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 6 hours.
