  • Good pump, lacks feedback
    Verified Purchase

    When charged, the pump works as advertised. However, there is no indication as to how charged the battery is... Fully charged? Half charged? It is basically a guessing game as to whether the battery will have enough charge to run the pump. When the charge is too low, the pump simply stops. This led to me spending some time troubleshooting the pump because there was no clear indication that the battery was low. There is a low battery indicator whereby several of the lights flash in unison. My experience has been that the pump will sometimes stop working before the flashing light indicator kicks in. And, as mentioned above, there is no warning for when the battery will no longer be able to run the pump. I'm happy with the purchase bc I do get effectively a wireless pump for my garden. It is just frustrating to not know when the whole system will just stop working. Certainly, in full sunshine the system works like a champ. I've been trying it out at night with mixed results on how long the system will run. Again, having knowledge of the battery percentage remaining would lead me to a better user experience.

  • Works Very Well
    Verified Purchase

    Product came in tact. No instructions though. Had to try and figure out settings by practice. Timer does work on mine, as some said that issues with this feature. Using it with my outdoor fountain. All in all, works well for what I need it to do. Also, birds love it, too.

    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.

    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

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

    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.

  • Powerful Solar Pump With Some Serious Liabilities.
    Verified Purchase

    Last Summer I installed in my garden, a very authentic granite Natsume Water Stone and bamboo Shishi Odoshi (Deer Scarer) fountain. I have no electrical outlet that far from the house, so I used this solar powered water pump to run it. The solar panel keeps the lead/acid battery charged fairly well, but don't expect too much in this respect. When it is running, it is very effective and the control box even has a plug for an included LED light. This control box is designed to work as a timer, to turn the pump on and off at specific hours. My unit's timer feature has never worked at all. I have to plug in and unplug the pump jack in order to turn the pump on and off. This is a royal pain. There is also an "auto" setting but the manual doesn't even address this feature, which apparently does not work either. Speaking of manuals, this one is poorly translated from the Chinese and is not easy to understand. Furthermore, nowhere is the name of the manufacturer included in the documentation, or any kind of warranty. So, you're stuck with this if it proves to be broken or otherwise unsatisfactory.. It is NOT inexpensive, so even though it does work, sort of, I couldn't recommend this product. Sorry.

  • Q:

    "What battery does this product use? What is the cost of a replacement battery and how often does it normally need to be replaced?"

    • A:

      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.

    • A:

      This appears to use a small wet-cell battery, similar to a car, encased in a plastic, weatherproof box, which also has the controls.

  • Q:

    "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?"

    • A:

      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.

    • A:

      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.

  • Q:

    "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."

    • A:

      Thanks for your question. It has been sent for review and will be answered shortly.

  • Q:

    "I need a water lift of 4ft for my fountain, and would use a 1/2 inch vinyl tube. Does this unit pump that high, and can I replace the plastic tubes provided with a piece of flexible vinyl tubing to feed the water up through my existing fountain ?"

    • A:

      This pump has a max water lift of six feet. You can use your own tubing, as needed.

  • Q:

    "Can you set the timer for various hours of the day or for various days of the week. (ie… from 10:00AM to 3:00PM every day or 10:00AM to 3:00PM on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays only)"

    • A:

      Yes, it can be set to run at specific times.

  • Q:

    "How large is the solar panel?"

    • A:

      3.5 inches wide x 3.5 inches long x 5.5 inches high
