Certain to please with an elegant verdigris bowl resting upon a sturdy wrought iron stand, the Smart Solar Somerset Verdigris Solar Bird Bath Fountain is a lovely choice. This fountain operates in direct sunlight, using a solar panel to power a low-voltage water pump. It requires no wiring; simply install and enjoy. As it uses the power of the sun, there are no operating costs.
Birds are attracted to the sounds of splashing water, and moving water does not become stagnant; therefore, mosquitoes are less likely to lay eggs in the water fountain. You can leave the bird bath out year-round; simply remove the pump and solar panel for storage, and replace them with the included reservoir cover. The 2-inch bathing depth holds approximately 1 to 1.5 gallons of water.
The solar panel sits in the bowl of the bird bath. Due to the fact that clouds have a filtering effect on the sun, the panel may not operate -- or operate efficiently -- on cloudy days. But birds will continue to enjoy the birdbath regardless of the weather. And you'll appreciate the tranquil beauty this birdbath brings to your garden area.
