Simple Solar panel and pump. Tried it in the back yard. From what I can tell this item more then takes care of what I had in mind. There are some pros and cons. Good is that when the solar panel gets a good direct sun light it will run the pump really well. The sun moves so as it moves you either have to move the panel or have mediocre performance. I'm using it for a bird bath so I would try to figure the direction of the sun at the time of day local birds might want to use the bird bath.
Also in an attempt to get optimum performance I bought a chrome light with clamp. I took the wiring part for a light bulb off and screwed in a piece of pipe and attached the clamp to that. The solar panel does not have anything to help attach it to something. I used 20 Fluorocarbon line to tie the solar panel down in the center of the chrome light shield. After that the pump was getting enough power that it was pump water up over the small bucket I was using to test it. Attached...
Got this on Tuesday. Worked for a day, but has to be in direct (and I mean DIRECT) sunlight. Just being in the sun isn't enough. Now it is Saturday and it does not work at all. Very big disappointment.
It only workshows when the sun is out and it is extremely small. I enjoy it, however I would not recommend or by this again. I was using it in a small pond for decoration. It actually would be perfect for a bird bath.
