Ornamented with dragonflies and two little turtles, this solar birdbath only needs the birds to make it a complete outdoor scene. The Country Gardens 2-Tier Solar-on Demand Birdbath is made from light weight material, so it is easy to move once assembled. Featuring a weathered stone finish, this fountain looks like real stone but without the heaviness. Enjoy watching and listening to the cascading water as your favorite birds frolic and chirp in the bath.
The Solar on Demand feature of this fountain stores energy throughout the day, to keep your fountain running at night or when a cloud passes. Complete with an on/off switch, this fountain offers convenience and beauty to be enjoyed for many summers. Solar battery stores energy during the day.
Battery life is on average 12 to 18 months, but can be less than that depending on the frequency of charges and discharge cycles. Boost charging is a viable option and can be done by placing the solar panel in full sun, for up to three days without use. Most hardware stores also sell new batteries if boost charging does not work.
A self-contained fountain, this piece comes with all the parts needed for assembly and needs no tools. No installation is required. Let this fountain bring you years of a peaceful water feature sure to be enjoyed by you and guests.

This is the second solar-on-demand fountain I've purchased and I love it, as do the birds. It works beautifully, creating a lovely flowing water sound. There is some maintenance involved, but it's worth it. I had never owned a fountain before so it took me a while to learn about cleaning and maintaining it, but I don't think it's any more difficult than any other outdoor fountain. After about two to three weeks of continuous daily use, I have to take the pump apart, dry out and clean all parts. The tiny piece of sponge material in the pump chamber must be completely clean. Everything gets a little slimy from being in the water so I wipe and dry everything but it's easy to reassemble. My birds bathe a lot so even though I change and add water daily, dirt and feathers fall in but as I said, the whole thing is very easy to clean. I love it and it works beautifully!
Purchased the Country Gardens 2-Tier Solar-on Demand as a Christmas present. Unpacked it, found all parts were there. Assembly was easy and it is a better looking fountain than I expected. But, I will not be able to put it in operation until approximately April 2011, after the frost is gone in this area,to test it. I hope it works as advertised.
Very nice fountain and perfect for my garden. Finish is nice and the solar feature works very well. Shipping was fast and everything arrived in good condition.
