The four plastic pipes which come with the unit are thin, short and break easy. The pump does not come close to the 1 meter lift height. I am only able to get a flow up to 18". The battery housing does not have a way to mount it to the wall so you will need a separate shelf or just have it set on the ground. The four top units to control the spray are thin and they too break easily. Over all I say do not buy this unit.
I have 2 of these which work pretty well so far (2 and 4 months running). It's great for smaller water features not more than 30 inches high. Not as much water flow/force as an AC pump but still a nice replacement without the electricity. I substituted the 5/8" inside diameter hose for a 1/2" one to achieve a little more pressure.
I love this fountain. It does not come with tubing and the instructions are for multiple fountains. That can be a bit confusing to just look at pics and deduct what they want you to do. I added tubing and connected it to a special heron fountain spitter. It works great! Between the solar aspect and backup battery - it has been exactly what I wanted. No problems or complications.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? All was as described
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality especially with the backup battery is great.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Everything was accurate
I had very guarded expectations when buying this product but I must say it has been a very pleasant surprise.
Very easy to set up.
High quality construction.
Works well so far (3 months).
Water flow is not that great although sufficient for a small table top fountain.
Product manual is very spartan and parts of it seem to have suffered during translation.
This pump was described as flowing up to 1.3 meters. It did not flow more than 12 inches which does not work in my two foot high fountain. And being that this item is non-returnable, I am stuck with the item and out the money.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? poor
I recently purchased a water fountain and want to use a solar pump instead of the electrical one. The box indicates the water pump is 160 GPH how does this compare to the 100 L/H water flow?beverly02 on Jun 12, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Do you have to use the battery or can this fountain be connected without the battery? (i.e. so it only runs when the sun is shining and does not run on cloudy days or after dark)fountainyard on Apr 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello, fountainyard. Hope your day is going well. This item must be connected to the battery control housing in order to work. But, you can set the item to run in day only, so the fountain will be working when the sun is shining. Thank you for shopping with us and please feel free to contact us again with any further questions.
