Add this rustic and stately water piece to your outdoor area to create a lovely centerpiece, that operates completely on the power of the sun. The Chartwell Two Tier Solar on Demand Fountain looks like a heavy piece of stone, but really is very lightweight and easy to move. Made to withstand the elements, you can leave this fountain outside, without worrying. You will enjoy the soft trickles of water, as it cascades from the top square tier into the basin below. Featuring a tall, vertical column, this fountain is classically designed and will enrich any space it is placed in.
On the solar powered mode, the fountain will run directly from solar energy; however, the pump will only work in bright and sunny conditions. On the battery mode, you can power your fountain for up to 4 hours on cloudy days or at night. When the battery power is depleted, the system will automatically change back to solar powered mode and start again when there is sufficient sunlight. Included is a timing set that will run your fountain for four hours at a time.
Important: The LED lights come on automatically and will only work when it is dark outside. Also, each fountain color is distinct and particular to that fountain.
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. If the battery does appear less efficient you may try and boost charge it. In order to boost charge the battery you must leave off for 2-3 sunny days to allow maximum charge to the battery. If the boost charge does not help the battery then you will need to replace it. Open the battery cover on the back of the solar panel and replace the batteries with 4 standard AA size rechargeable batteries.
For an additional purchase, an electric battery charger is also available. If there are several cloudy days in a row where the solar panel cannot recharge the batteries fully, you can unplug the solar panel, bring it inside, and plug it into a standard outlet with this battery charger to recharge the batteries.
