This is such a great little pump. I am happy to see they are back in stock!
Works great in daylight and at night. It has lights that shine at night and the fountain goes in the dark. It also keeps flowing and glowing for several hours after dark.
A good feature is that it shuts off when there no longer is enough water.
This solar fountain works even when the sun goes behind a cloud. It has a real glass cover over the solar panels rather than a thin plastic film that corrodes quickly. There are removable/cleanable filters with (2) replacements.
There are a variety of different spray nozzles included as well as 'drinking-straw' spacers to prevent the fountain, which floats, from drifting too close to the edge of the bird bath. Should have one nozzle with less spraying power.
In partial sunlight the stream is a drizzle. Kind of works when its in 100% sun. We have it in a bird bath and it only gets a few hours of dappled sun light.
The wind blows the water stream out of the birdbath which eventually lowers the water level below that which is required for pumping. It spurts then it may flow for a minute and then it spurts again. It stops if a cloud floats by.
