This solar pump kit features a battery back up so it will run after the sun goes down or on cloudy days. It is designed for a outdoor fountain, pond or water reservoir. The solar panel powers the pump and charges the battery by converting sunlight into electricity powering the fountain. Water will push up to 56 inches high when you make your own outdoor solar fountain. The included LED light gives you just the right light at night as well.
- Dry run protection pump will automatically turn pump off when the water level gets too low or runs out to avoid burn out of the pump.
- Included LEDs only work at night and will turn on/off automatically
Water flow is 132 GPH with maximum lift of 56" when a 1/2" tube is connected and conditions are optimal. The pump comes with adapters so you can make your own pond fountain or convert an electric pump to a solar pump. The pump and adapters fit the inside diameter of a hose that is 1/2".
This pump can operate on solar and battery power when set to the on position. In good sunlight conditions, the pump will be powered by solar energy. In addition, the battery pack will be recharged via solar energy. If it is a cloudy day or night time the battery will automatically run the pump. If fully charged, the batteries will power the pump for up to 4 hours. When the batteries are depleted, the system will automatically switch to be powered by the solar panel, and the pump will resume running when the sun come out.
The battery generally lasts between 12-18 months, but with repeated charges and discharge cycles the battery will become less efficient and battery capacity may reduce.
