  • Solar pump

    Everything worked as described. I found that I can leave the pump on 24/7 if I use a low setting. The higher setting generally will run for 7 to 8 hours. I am very pleased with the product

  • enlightened review

    The solar pump works as advertised. no complaints; no real problems; easy to set up. If there was a problem it was that one of the solar panels arrived broken. The item was not returnable, but the staff at overstock worked continually to get me the right part that was working. It took two attempts but I did get the part and everything is great. The overstock folks were great and diligent. I am happy with the pump. The one issue someone may have (not me) is that the head height quoted maybe a bit optimistic. I have it rising 2.5 feet and it works great - much higher though it may not.

  • Not what it's supposed to be, but still nice.

    Although it's not what it was supposed to be, it's still a very nice unit. Solar panel is very large and appears extremely sturdy. It has an aluminum frame & the panel is glass, not plastic that cheaper units use. The panel should outlast the pump itself. The battery/control unit is very compact & easy to hide, and with the long cords provided to the pump, panel & light, can be put just about anywhere. Only comes with 2 heads for the fountain, but this is a standard size nozzle, so finding other spray patterns shouldn't be that difficult. The instruction manual is extremely limited, but unit functions are pretty self explanatory. Anyone should be able to figure out it's operation, even without a manual. Not exactly what it was supposed to be, but well worth it anyway.

    • How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is as pictured... now.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Appears to be good quality, tho according to some reviews this item doesn't last very long.
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? There is no day/nite mode with this model (SLP108C), that mode is only on the "B" models. Original desc listed 2 panels, this has only 1. One of the reviewers even states that one of their panels didn't work.
  • pump

    Works very well. Pumps water to the correct height with no problems.

  • Decent product

    This product was easy to install and is sufficient for what we needed. The lift, water volume and being solar were the features most important. This unit seemed overkill for our small water feature, but it gives us the force and water circulation we were looking for.

    Controller problems right from the start. Solar Panel worked Pump worked but the controller never operated properly. Once the battery lost all it's power the pump stopped.

  • great little pump

    great little pump. I am using it to flow a small waterfall from my pond and it pumps exactly as it says it would. I love the timer feature it goes on in the evening when I get home from work to relax

  • 8-watt solar pump

    I purchased this product to use with a previously purchased electric powered fountain. The fountain is in a location that is not convenient for electrical power so I went with the solar power. The fountain is roughly 4 ft tall so I needed a pump with enough power to lift water at least that high. Overall this pump has been very satisfactory. It was easy to set up and has plenty of power to lift the water the desired height. The solar pump will work on overcast days but sometimes it is cranky the next sunny day and will keep cutting off until it gets recharged. I would recommend this pump.

What battery does this product use? What is the cost of a replacement battery and how often does it normally need to be replaced? emtbella3745 on Apr 2, 2013

Answer This Question

Thank you for your interest in the Solar Powered 8-watt 18-volt Water Pump with Battery and Timer. This item uses a 12v battery. You will have to shop around for the cost of a replacement battery and it all depends on how much you use the item to determine how often the battery needs replaced. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 5, 2013
This appears to use a small wet-cell battery, similar to a car, encased in a plastic, weatherproof box, which also has the controls. vadertime on Apr 30, 2013

What is the power rating (wattage) of the pump and is it rated for 24-hour usage? Is the battery a standard one that is replaceable if needed? k8sgrate on Mar 24, 2013

Answer This Question

Thank you for contacting us emtbella3745. The wattage on the pump is 8 watts. It can be used Timer setting: Day/Night Mode. The type of battery it comes with is lead acid battery 12V-4AH. If for some reason it would stop working you can find that part available for sale. Please let us know if you have any further questions. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 13, 2013
The 8 watt consumption stated by customer care might be right. I fully charged the battery for two days when I first got the system and then ran it all night, with the LED light in the fountain. I turned it on around 9:00 p.m. and itt was still working at 5:00 a.m. when I let the dogs out. However, by 6:30 a.m. it was out of juice, so that might be right. Battery is 12v@4ah, which is 48 watts. Divide that by 8 watts and you get about 6 hours or so of non-stop usage. The amount of sunlight greatly affects the storage of power in the battery. vadertime on Apr 30, 2013

How bright are the LED lights, in terms of standard wattage? Also, is it possible to set the timer to turn it on and off twice in one day -- say from 6AM to 8AM and from 6PM to 8PM. I'm thinking of using this unit as a light in our portable chicken coop, to give the hens enough light so they keep laying. daveking2 on Sep 12, 2012
