It seems to be working so far, but it's been really cloudy and rainy here, so it's hard to tell. It has definitely been pumping water, and the one time the sun came out, it was pumping it pretty nicely. The suction cups leave something to be desired. They're constantly letting go so the unit floats around. That might be nice in a big coy pond or something, but it's a bit of a problem in a bird bath. I might have to anchor it with some rocks or something. Another negative in a bird bath is that when the wind blows, you lose all your water. That would happen with an electric pump, too, however, so it's just something to keep an eye on. I definitely love how I now have a little fountain without cords all over the yard.
I had to take off a star because the suction cups dont work. Like most bird baths, the bottom of mine is rounded, making it difficult for the suction cups to reach the bottom. Luckily I had some flat rocks I positioned around the pump to hold it down in place. You have to be careful with the rocks because if you cover up too much of the solar panels it will not work. I was going to put some rocks in the birdbath so the birds had more surface to land on anyway so this wasn't a big deal for me. The shadow from one of the vertical posts on my deck railing also caused this to stop working so I moved the birdbath to the outside edge of my butterfly garden and it works perfect. Like others have posted, on windy days the bath can empty quickly if you use the circle disks which project the water high. Right now I don't have any of the attachments on the pump since it has been windy all week and it has been working great keeping the water moving.
So much fun! We turned an above ground fire pit into a fountain. We sprayed it with a rustoleum clear coat to avoid rusty water. It looks very pretty with rocks and this solar fountain pump. Adults and kids alike are curious about it. So much instant fun for only $25. I change the water every other day to avoid mosquitoes and algae. My only gripe is waiting for the sun to come out. But I do love that it is cordless.
