Description

Smartgarden – Solar Powered Bird Bath Fountain Kit

For the first time ever, make any body of water into a beautiful bird bath fountain. The Solar Bird Bath Fountain can be used anywhere and runs off solar power, this means no maintenance, ugly wires or set up, making it perfect for any backyard, garden or home this Spring and Summer!

Use it in ponds, fountains, pools of water or anywhere you please! Simply put the fountain into water with the solar panels faced up under the sun and it will run automatically every day. It includes suction cups attached to the bottom that can be placed on the bottom surface of your pond so that the fountain doesn’t float around freely.

You will receive 4 different fountain heads, these alter the style and patterns of the fountains water as it sprays out the top.

The Solar Bird Bath Fountain runs by using solar panels on the top of the base, this means no maintenance, set up, plugs, or work is required. The fountain does need full sun exposure and a little bit of time to start performing.

It can be easily cleaned and we highly recommend keeping it in clean water so it doesn’t get mossy or dirty. It also works great for circulation oxygen in water, this is great for ponds and fish tanks.

    A great product works as described. Needs a little maintenance in the form of debris cleaning but nothing major. Adds a beautiful if not peaceful sound of trickling water to our backyard. So far has proven durable. The fact that ita solar powered is definitely a great selling point, once the sun hits it. It goes higher and higher. I would recommend this product to anyone.

    Works really great in FULL sun. The least little bit of a shadow, however, and it stops abruptly. But the pump starts up again just as fast once the shadow passes. When I operated the pump for the first time it took a second then began shooting water up about 18-20", I was pleasantly surprised. I wasn't expecting that from this tiny little device. Totally easy to set up, heck there's really nothing to set up. Select the fountain head you want and place into the water – I played around with all of them til I found one that worked best for my bird bath. I could not use the suction cups on the bottom of the pump or the additional suction cup and fishing line provided to keep the fountain in place because my bird bath does not have a smooth surface. So I decided to "corral" the fountain with rocks. The birds like the rocks anyway, they stand on them and let the water fall over their bodies or drink directly from the fountain. In Arizona, I have to keep a close eye on water levels because it's so arid. I'm filling the bird bath up a few times during the day to keep the fountain from running dry. Overall very pleased.

    Just got this today for our birdbath and it works beautifully. The fountain was shooting too high for the diameter of our birdbath (the breeze was blowing the water over the side before it landed back in the bowl), so I used a small nail to enlarge the holes in one of the wider nozzle caps which were included. The bigger holes keep the fountain spray at about a 4 - 5 inch height in full sun rather than 12-14 inches as it was the original cap.

    Very pleased with this product! I purchased this for use with a "Best Choice Products Pedestal Quality Bird Bath" and it works perfectly. I removed the spray pieces completely, as others have mentioned, so that it simply creates a small bubbling in the fountain, which is what I was looking for. You can have it spray a beautiful fountain spray, but for a small bird bath, the water tends to blow out of the fountain, thus making it necessary to keep the water filled more often. We basically just wanted the water to be aerated and to move to help keep mosquitos from using the bath as well as to attract the birds to the fountain. As a solar unit, it works exactly as it should. With little to no sun, you should not expect the pump to be operating. If it is overcast, it bubbles in short spurts (still enough to accomplish all the needs I listed above). With full sun, it bubbles away and is perfect. As a side note, we ended up buying a second bird bath and decided to add another Solar Bird bath Fountain Pump. We bought something that looked very similar from SOONHUA instead of Ankway and the lack of quality in packaging and materials was noticeable. The Ankway arrived in a sturdy box with instructions and the other was packaged in a very flimsy cardboard with absolutely no instructions. There seem to be a number of companies carrying this item, but Ankway is the better choice!

    I purchased this solar pump for my glass bird bath to provide a water and bathing station for my sweet hummingbirds. The pump fit perfectly in the base of my glass birdbath and produced a nice fountain for the birds to enjoy. The amount of sun determines the height of the fountain spray, so you will need to find a sunny place for optimal effectiveness. The pump does not store solar power, so it is only active when it is sunny. It comes with 3 nozzle tip attachments for creating different water stream effects. The pump must be completely immersed in water to function properly and to extend the life of the water pump. The pump does have three small suction cups on the bottom that are perfect for glass or metal type bird baths. If you have a concrete or rough surface bath, you can use pebbles to secure the pump to the base. I found that once the pump produces a very large and high water spray that the little suction cups can become detached, so I opted to attach the large suction cup provided, to further stabilize my pump to the base of my glass bowl. I love the fact that this product is solar, so there are no safety issues. It provides my porch with an instant calming water feature, in addition to providing a water sanctuary for my bird friends. I was very fortunate to be given the opportunity to purchase this solar fountain pump at a discounted price for review purposes. I am not a paid reviewer and received no other compensation. I do a great deal of shopping on Amazon and rely on customer reviews to help me make a purchasing decision, so it is important that I submit an honest review to my fellow shoppers. I personally love this product and feel very comfortable giving it 5 stars for function, ease of operation and safety in producing an instant water feature. I hope my review was helpful.

    I'm enjoying this little pump. I put it in a large bowl about 24inches in diameter with about 2 inches depth. I put the bowl in the middle of my bee-butterfly garden that gets max sun. The bowl sits close to the ground. The pump floats around a little and some water sprays out on the ground which is fine and mists some flowers. The second day a mockingbird visited it and seemed to be intrigued with the bubbling water. He would flit and jump all around it. Because the pump works at varying strength due to how the sun hits, when the bird landed on the bowl and blocked some sun the fountain went lower and then without warning when the bird moved a little and the sun hit the solar cell in full the water spurted up high. In response The bird jumped up sky high in surprise and then just kept coming back to taunt the device. It was hilarious. Mockingbirds are always chasing other animals so it was fun to see the device spray the bird and joke on the bird for once. It is so little trouble. I just refill the bowl each evening when I water plants. It did not work well for my shallow bird bath on a pedestal. Needs more depth. I will probably order another one. It's hard to keep any standing water due to mosquitoes here but The movement of the pump helps keep away some mosquitoes and disrupts eggs the next morning (after sitting at night). But the water chasing the mockingbird episode was alone worth the price.

    I purchased this pump on June 19, 2017...i have used it probably 2 weeks, and it has stopped working totally. There is no movement at all from the pump in full sun. I am really disappointed... I just got my bird bath up...picked the most perfect place for it in full sun...went out today...no pump. Ankway...now what do i do?

    Its pretty amazing for such an affordable product. Initially, the pump pumped water in min bursts, once i anchoreded it it functioned pretty smooth. Took a little trial and error but i got it to work. I included a video to demonstrate the potenial. My bird bath is a DIY I looked up, just a old dog bowl i had suspended by a tomato cage. Enjoy!

    I wasn't sure what to expect, especially after reading several negative reviews. I am glad I purchased this little pump nevertheless. I bout it together with a birdbath to use as a little water feature. As soon as I took the protective foil off the item it started up. Inside the house, no direct sunlight. As soon as I stepped outside I had to actually turn it upside down because I didn't want the pump to drun dry/without water. The second I put it in water, the pump worked. It worked so well I had to take the nozzle off because the water was shooting up too high and outside the water bath. (Without the attachment nozzle water comes up a couple of inches and is perfect for the birdbath).

    Not only adorable, but anyone can have their own birdbath buy just placing this in your bowl, pot whatever. I unboxed this in the shade as to not wear out the motor since it turns on in the sun. Walked over and put it in our shallow Talavera birdbath. Not rocks to hold it down. Simply place and walk away. No, it does not work in the shade or during cloud cover, only direct sunshine. We live in the desert so no problem. Perfectly packed, quickly shipped and excellent instructions. Just buy it already!

    I actually bought this product before I bought the fountain. I was drawn to the availability of different nozzles for effect and the solar power feature. The only con part of the review is that the suction cups on the bottom of the unit are so small they never hold the unit under water. I ended up using the larger suction cup provided and attached it with a very, very short piece of the filament (also provided). It still manages to just float but as long as the pump underneath is under water it is just fine. It would be great if Ankway could figure out how to put a more weighted system underneath. The unit works as long as there is sun on it just as described. The pump stopped working one day and it was super easy to turn the unit over and clean the pump intake filter. The ends of the pump pop off and are idiot proof for how to put them back on. If your birdbath is anywhere near a tree, bush, or bird feeder it will inevitably get things sucked up to the filter. Make sure you position the pump to where the filter end has the most exposure to the open side underneath. I currently have a ceramic bird bath that is 2 1/2" deep and 20" diameter. I can only use the basic, bubble-out tip instead of one of the nice spray tips because it is so shallow. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a birdbath that is in a mostly sunny area. I will buy another one when I get the deeper birdbath.

    My new Ankway Solar Bird bath Fountain just arrived and installed within minutes. After attempting to weigh down the Ankway Solar Bird bath Fountain with some small polished rocks, I ended up removing the circular foam layer which was attached to the bottom of the device and now the fountain remains submerged and does not float to the surface. Even though the fountain is submerged the integrated solar panel collects enough of the sun’s energy to drive the device’s tiny pump. Three tiny suction cups are cleverly located at the bottom of the device which helps the device to stay firmly in place. The water jets spray gently upward approximately eleven inches, which allows the water to stay inside the birdbath and not splash out. From a short distance away you can’t see the circular solar panel which powers the tiny pump. The Ankway Solar Bird bath Fountain is very well constructed and I can tell that it will last for many years to come. I’m sitting here in my study; approximately 10 feet away from the birdbath, and the sound of the water cascading gently back to the surface of the bird bath’s surface is absolutely soothing. Surprisingly enough, earlier today when it was grey and overcast, the solar panel collected enough of the sun’s energy to drive the tiny pump. Pumps that run without a minimum amount of water will eventually fail so do as the manufacturer recommended and make sure that the water in your bird bath remains at a level that keeps the device’s pump submerged. This Ankway Solar Bird Fountain should make a wonderful addition to any bird bath. Buy with confidence and enjoy!

    Years ago, I purchased the Ankway Solar Water Pump and it still perfoms as if new. I mistakenly bought a lookalike and was sadly disappointed that it was totaly unsatisfactory. That is why I search and found a second Ankway for by second birdbath.

    I bought several of these bird bath pumps and they work great. You need a basin that is at least 20 inches wide and 3 inches deep. Fill it with water. Place a few smaller flat stones around the base to prevent the base from moving. On a sunny day you will have a great little fountain. On a cloudy day the fountain does not work because it is powered by sun. I rinse the fountain every 2 days in a clean water to keep it clean and exchange the water in the basin too. My basin is light ceramic blue bowl so it is easy to maintain. If your basin is not wide enough the water will splash outside of the basin and your pump engine will burn out. The wider the basin (20 inches or wider) and at least 3 inches deep the better the fountain works. Smaller bowls will not work. I tried several sizes and the 20" or wider bowls x 3 inches in depth work best with this type of pump. I don't have video to show but will make one and post it in the spring. Highly recommend!

    This thing is so cool! I put this into a normal sized bird bath. It was floating around and the suction cups would not stick to the bird bath so I just stuck it on a small plate to weigh it down. I love it!!! What a great idea. There are so many creative things you could do with it.

    Just plopped it into the bird bath and it started running right away. Only used it yesterday and have tried only one of the nozzles so far. The one negative to report at this moment is that it really sucks a lot of water. The nozzle I used shot the water up but a breeze blew the stream out of the bird bath so the water drained faster than I imagined. I will try the other nozzles to see if one sends the stream a little lower so it doesn't over shoot the bowl. If it was smaller I thought it would be fun for my cats/rabbits water bowl.

    Just as advertised! I have a smaller, classic concrete birdbath, so I didn't actually use any of the attachments that came with it. If you don't have anything on the nozzle it has a nice 2" bubbling flow that really attracts birds. The extra nozzle heads are great though, but this little pump has power! I was getting two foot water streams out of the birdbath when I tried out the other attachments.

    This inexpensive product is nice for a birdbath that offers a surface for the product to stick to. I have one concrete bath with decoration in the base and it did not stick well. Not because of the fountain but due to the surface of the bath. The second I used it in was a bowl style, which it floated in and offered a great results. The pump clogged easily with debris that ended up in the birdbath so keeping an eye on the flow helps you know when it needs to be cleared. I pulled the tube part off the top, as wind blew away the water coming off the fountain top as it came out. For the price, it was nice to convert a standard bath into a fountain and kept the water moving nicely.

    It works much better than I expected. In fact in some respects it works too well. It took me a while to figure out how to use it in the bird bath as it was powerful enough to put the water more than a foot upwards. the wind would blow and the water sprayed over the edge so that it emptied the bath in a matter of minutes. I now use it with out the attachments and this way it's fine. I bought a deep tub and use the attachment in it and it makes a wonderful spray. The best part is the motor turns off if there is no water or th inlet gets clogged. I highly recommend this product.

    I was surprised by the quality of this little solar powered water pump. It really does move some water! In fact, you better have a huge bird bath, or expect to refill it often, because this fountain can send a stream of water 20 inches high in bright sunlight. If there is a wind of any kind, the water gets blown outside of the bird bath. The extra water diffusers is a nice touch. I drilled a larger hole in one and it makes a nice solid stream of water that is so heavy it falls mostly straight back down, even with a light wind. My finches love this thing. It scares the cardinals for some reason, although I attribute that to the Cards just being really skittish by nature. To add to what others have already said...this device is not battery powered or supported in any way. It is strictly sun powered, and MUST be in direct, bright overhead sunlight to work at its maximum capacity. If you shadow it in any way, it stops pumping. If it is partly cloudy, it will work intermittently, and with much less force. A word to the wise, keep the inlet screen clear of debris as it can be clogged by vegetation and will ruin the pump. Ours has been running daily for the past two months with nothing more than just weekly removal of random grass clippings from the pump inlet screen. Well worth the 16 dollars!

    This little thing is fantastic! We used it to create a small water feature for our patio with a wide, shallow planter. At first, we suctioned it to a bowl, positioned under the water, and it worked fine. But I wanted to see how it would do floating freely and found that the water sprays up much nicer. I'd guess because the solar panel recieves better sunlight when it floats on top. The bowl we are using is wide enough to keep the water from shooting outside of it so no complaints there. But we experimented a little with a taller, more narrow container and it sprayed out. So I definitely see why there is so much discussion about that. My suggestion is to use the extra suction with the string to anchor it down under the water. That seemed to be the difference for us in how high the water sprayed! I hope that helps! We thoroughly enjoy this! So many options to make an easy to handle, very pretty water feature for little cost!

    This works like a charm in my hanging shallow bird bath. I love it! Yes, it will only work when the sun is on it, but here that is most of the time. .My bird bath is shallow, and at first the water was spraying up and out of the bath. Then I read the directions again, and as the manufacturer suggested, I twisted off the attached top. Now It works like a bubbler. Perfect! Keeps the mosquitoes away and the birds happy.

    Great little fountain. Easy to use. For me, I used without the sprinkler attachments so it would not deplete the water in my bird bath. (I could not get suction cups to hold to my particular bath) I just use as a bubble fountain the birds seem to like it. I have had it for several months it seems to be holding up great. I do flip it over and wash it out daily to prevent bird seed from clogging up pump.

    Bought 3 of these in the winter. When danger of freezing was remote I set one out today in the birdbath on a dark grey day. As I carried it out it began making a whirring noise like it was already working? Placed it in the filled birdbath and water sprayed from the top! After reading all the reviews I was not expecting this to happen! Looked out the window and it was sprinkling rain but the the solar fountain in the birdbath was still working. I am pleased with my purchase and hoping the other two work as well as this one. Followed advice of others and made sure to remove the piece of plastic that covers the solar surface.

    Works great floating or submerged. I prefer it underwater because, as others have noted, the spray can get really high especially on a really sunny day and shoots out of the birdbath. It emptied my birdbath in a matter of minutes, lol. So, I removed the floating foam ring and stuck the pump to the bottom of the birdbath (there are suction cups on the bottom of the pump). It also comes with a larger suction cup and fishing line so you can use that as well or use it to tether the pump in place if it's floating. The whole unit including solar panel is completely submerged, and I believe this is what controls the height of the water spray as well. The water over the solar panel blocks the sun just enough so that the pump isn't running on full power. The spray more of a bubbling action with the short nozzle attachment (the one that's on the pump when you get it). With some of the other nozzle attachments, you can still get an awesome spray that stays IN the birdbath :D

    Mine was already assembled, but the drawing for how-to was good enough if I had to assemble, I easily could. It looks like the photo, underneath being the pump already attached, with 3 small suction cups to hold it in place in the bird bath. It comes with several options for spray patterns, as well as parts/instructions for deeper or larger or shallow bird baths. It was also charged - I literally took it out of the box, put it in my bird bath and it was working perfectly. At a shallow amount of water the fountain spray was thin and high shooting; the more water I added the spray became more subdued, ending up a fatter, lower bubbling which sounds quite calming.

    I am absolutely delighted with this Solar Fountain Pump! It fits perfectly into my birdbath, and provides a nice spray for the birds to enjoy. It works exactly as described. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now, and it's going strong. I was pleased to find a one-year warranty in the package when I unpacked the item. As soon as the sun hits it in the morning, the pump starts working. Any shadows or shade, and the pump stops - but that's ok. There are multiple "heads" which are easily attached to change the spray height and pattern, and there is a large suction cup with a line to attach to it. There are also small suction cups on the bottom of the pump.This was very useful - as I saw that when it was windy, the pump floated around the birdbath, causing water to fly out of the birdbath, leaving a low water level. I used the line to easily secure the pump to the center of the bowl, and all the water stays where it belongs. My hummingbirds and other birds using the birdbath love flying through the spray of water in the air. And I love watching them!

    I have been using this thing for over 2 years, it has blown me away. It’s run completely dry on many occasions in the dead heat of summer and the motor still works like brand new.

    Exactly what I needed. I'm using this in a birdbath to provide some water movement, which I'm hoping attracts the birds and keeps the mosquitoes away. The first day, I used it with the fountain head that it came attached with. Nice little fountain spray, but my water evaporated very quickly due to some of the spray leaving leaving the bird bath. I simply removed that fountain head attachment and left it as is - problem solved. It's a much lower sort of a gurgle than a spray and the water did not evaporate/escape like before.

    Company is absolutely GREAT to work w/ when I had a problem w/ the solar fountain I first was shipped. When trouble shoooting didn't work, I contacted the company and they shipped me out another one as an exchange for the first one that I couldn't get to work. The only little concern I have about it is that the water sprays out from my bird bath when the wind blows so had to keep refilling the bird bath numerous times/day. No matter what spray attachent I used, both w/ or without the neck piece, caused the fountain spray to be a bit too high if the wind was blowing. Tried it even without any attachments and same thing happened. Finally took off all the pieces and just let it function as a bubbler instead. Would have preferred to see a pretty spraying effect since that is the whole purpose of a fountain. However, this way no water is being wasted and the bubbler effect still causes the water to move to help attract birds to it and to deter mosquitos..

    Love this addition to my bird bath. I know it says it will only work in direct sunlight and not any shade, but my little gadget works even in shade if it's a sunny day. Of course, the highest stream of water is in direct sunlight. I waited a week to write this review to make sure I didn't get a malfunction, but it's still going strong. I do have some tips if you're interested. The suction cups won't stick to the bottom of a smooth birdbath, not even the big one they supplied held the gadget in place. So I got 3 small rocks out of my garden to weigh it down and it works perfectly and gives the feel of a little pond birdbath . Just make sure not to put the rocks directly on top because it blocks the solar panels from sun and it won't work at all, just tilt the rocks up against the sides of the gadget. The birds took a minute to get used to the water shooting up but now they're drinking like champions Pics attached of the water flow and the rocks inside.

    I put this fountain pump in my bird bath. In the winter, I got an intermittent fountain with the water going up about 2 inches. Now that it is summer with full sun, the water is spouting steady at 1-2 feet. This fountain is very nice to aerate the water and provide some interest. It does only work during the day when it has sunlight. It does need to be cleaned regularly. I now clean it every time I clean the birdbath to prevent algae and mineral build up. The three different heads are nice, and can be used to fit the desired look for the spray.

    I am very pleased with this product. So pleased, in fact, that I ordered another one. And then a third. I am thinking of buying still another one. Why? They are inexpensive, easy to use, and work well. I am experienced with solar fountains and pumps, so I knew what to do: if this is your first solar product, I recommend you read the instructions carefully. They are very clear. I put the solar pump in a bird bath and birds were immediately attracted to the fountain spray. So, I am very pleased with this purchase. Here is one warning, and it is not about the product but about the nature of all fountains: when the water sprays up, sometimes (especially on a windy day) the water will spray out of the bird bath and leave the pump running dry. Then, it will break. I recommend just using the cup without a cover with holes on it (all of these are included in the purchase) to just make a bubbler if you are not at home to make sure the fountain does not run dry.

    Wow! This fountain pump works immediately in the sunshine - no need to charge the battery! The pump started working the minute I took it outside! Placed it in my shallow bird bath that was partially shaded and the water shot up about 4-6 inches. It does float around the bird bath, which I thought would be fine. However, once the sun hit the pump, the water started shooting up over 12 inches! It floated to the edge of the bird bath and shot water onto the ground. Eventually, the floating pump became stuck on the side of the bath from the water evaporating and/or shooting up and out of the bird bath. I ended up with no water left! The instructions recommend using rocks to wedge the pump to keep it from floating around. I tried that next and it seemed to work well. However, I may need to relocate the bath to an area that gets less direct sun. My other option might be to use it in a deeper vessel as a fountain.

    What I like about this product is that you don't need a bird bath you can just recycle a litter box and it works. It has a nice . I can't comment on the longevity but the minute I put it outside and it saw light it was ready to work. What an inexpensive way to have a bird bath! If this last me two years at the price I paid I'll be extremely happy. Extremely easy to put together in a few varieties of spouts to choose from. It looks extremely easy to clean as well. The less parts the less there is for something to go wrong.

    Took a few days before it settled down and ran with no problems, but has been great since. At first, it was making some funny noises and the pump seemed to be struggling. I had to take it out of the water and reposition it several times, holding it tightly to the bottom of the birdbath. The fountain spray that came on it shoots the water up about a foot, and it kept emptying the birdbath. Once I unscrewed the spray attachment, I got a nice low fat bubbler of water, which is exactly what I wanted. I've only had this for a week, but at this point am extremely happy with it. It comes on with no problem whenever the sun is full on it.

    I have purchased 2 solar fountains, from a shopping channel and neither one worked for more than 2yrs. Both were in excess of $100, a total waste of money. This little solar fountain works perfectly. I don't use the adapters, as the spray shoots the water out of my fountain and I have to keep re-filling it. No biggie, I just put it in as in and it works as a sort of bubbler. I really love it!!

    When they say full sun they are serious. If there's a shadow over even a portion of the disc the pump will drop to intermittent spurts or stop completely until the entire surface of the disc is getting direct sunlight. Cloudy doesn't cut it; it has to be full-on blazing sunshine. I have mine in a ~7" deep bowl and if the water level is low, the lip of the bowl will cast enough of a shadow to stop the pump. So I keep the bowl full or nearly so which isn't hard to do and the disc floats on top and so keeps happily squirting away for most of the day. The included attachments make it work as a fountain or a bubbler/water agitator. I've looked at solar-powered birdbaths/critter waterers for a couple of years now and there was always a downside. Here there's no external solar panel, no connection to a water source, no electrical connection. If it dies after a season or two it won't break the bank to get a new one. Installation can't be simpler...find the vessel you want to turn into a mini-fountain, drop in this ~7" disc and you are done.

    Works like a charm, as described. Very pleased. This now enables us to locate our birdbath anywhere since there's no need to connect it to a water source. Great little product, easy to use, just add sun (the additional suction cup it comes with keeps the fountain from floating around, so the spray stays in the center of the fountain -- clever).

    It does what is says. Comes with different heads. It did empty the birdbath might need to try a different head so the fountain is lower. Like others I did use rocks to keep it centered in birdbath. This is a day two review so can't speak for longevity but the card says they warranty it for 12 months. Seems like a decent quality especially considering the price point $13. I do believe that it only runs while in sunlight, not like solar lights, does not charge just runs during the day while in sunlight

    I decided to try this in my backyard this summer just to add a bit of a water feature to the landscape. I took a pot without a drain hole and filled it with water then floated the pump in the pot. Yes it has to have full sun on the whole surface of the disc, but it is so efficient in those conditions I don't use any of the spray nozzles included as the water would fly out of the pot. Birds perch on the side to get drinks, and I do refill the pot periodically due to water evaporation. We LOVE it so much I immediately ordered two more to share with friends.

    Got this for the mother-in-law. Left it as a surprise in her bird bath. It started out with very little sunlight and produced a pulsating fountain about 3-4" high. ONce the sun got overhead it really started streaming a steady fountain that was way too much for the little bird bath, shooting alot of the water over the edge! Very powerful. You get a variety of nozzles to try out so I think we can settle for one that has more streams but less height for the spray. Another option is to slightly cover some of the solar panels with a plastic leaf or something to limit how powerful it can get. Otherwise, you are gonna need a bigger bird bath, lol. Nice feature is that it floats, so it will adjust with the water level and keep on working. Great value and it works very very well.

    I ordered the Ankway Solar Bird Bath Fountain Pump for use in a large plastic tank that I use to catch rain water for the garden. I thought this would be a good way to keep the water moving and prevent stagnation. This arrived promptly all the way to the UK and worked straight out of the box in yesterdays bright sunshine. I played around with the fountain fittings until happy with the height of the fountain and left it to do it's job.

    Step 1 said, "Please just put the main unit in the water..." so I did, even though the sticker on the unit said to remove the plastic film first. I was very impressed with the fountain, which started up right away but was too high for such a small bird bath (water was spraying out over the edge), so I took the unit out into the shade and read the rest of the directions. Step 2 said, "If the water shoots up too high, you can remove the cap..." so I did. I also removed the plastic film per the sticker. Without the cap, the unit produced just the right amount of movement. The birds started bathing as soon as I left the yard. Nice to watch them through the kitchen window. They hadn't shown any interest in that bath before the fountain, and now that the sun has left that part of the yard, the pump is resting and the birds are somewhere else.

    This is wonderful! Took it out of the box, put it in the bird bath, and it immediately started to spray (in fact, it started to work the second I walked outside into the sunlight, before I got it in the water). Note that it only works while in the direct sun--it doesn't store power--no sun, no spray. Also, it comes with several different spray heads but no explanation of which one provides which pattern or height--you just have to try them out and choose the best one for the setting. Our bird bath isn't very wide, so we use it without any of the spray attachments and we get a nice, low, steady bubbling effect (about 2" high). Finally, you need to make sure it's always submerged--the instructions warn that it could burn out if it isn't submerged. That said, we just love it. It comes with a one-year guarantee that we will hopefully not need; but we like it so much, I'd buy a new one each summer if necessary.

    Love this little fountain. I have a large pond (converted pool) and this fountain adds a sweet touch. If you are putting it in a bird bath, you would want to use one of the other heads that come with it to make it smaller. I have had no problem with clogging- it has been in the pond for weeks and I have cleaned it once, it does a little on, off dance as the sun starts to come around then full fountain when the sun is full on it. I anchored it with a bit of fishing line and a rock to keep it from floating around.

    Love this, love this. love this and so do the birds! We have the lowest shooting nozzle on it since it is in our free-standing birdbath that sits on the edge of our back patio. I add water to the birdbath every day and because this keeps the water in motion, I only have to deep clean the birdbath once a week. The birds sit on this and let the water fall on them. they also sit on the edge of the birdbath and do the same thing. They are not intimidated by it since it is not scary to them.

    I've recently dabbled with a few solar powered products and wanted something that would move the water in a birdbath to reduce or eliminate mosquito activity. I received this pump when the summer sun was still high in the sky most of the day. This fountain worked very well when it was in direct, overhead sunlight. If a thin cloud interrupted the sunlight, the fountain's activity would diminish in relation to how much sunlight was available. Now that we are in the Fall months and the angle of the sun is not so much directly overhead, the fountain effect is not quite as strong. I am not disappointed in the product. It does what it can do depending on what sunlight is available. It did seem to help in keeping the birdbath from being a mosquito breeding playground. Note: Make sure you keep ample water in whatever container is used with the pump.

    So easy to use and works well for the price. I find some of the attachments make the water shoot too high and it goes out of the birdbath so for now I just use it with no attachments and let the water bubble up, keeps the water moving and attracts birds. You do need to routinely clean any debris from the filter, easy and is expected. Works as advertised with direct sunlight and even works some on partly cloudy days. I originally bought two and bought two more because I lied it so well.

    I ordered my first Solar Powered Bird Bath Fountain Pump on August 9, 2016. I took it out of the box, peeled the clear protective film off the top, put the attachment I wanted on the pump and headed outside to my bird bath. This thing is phenomenal! I am truly surprised at how well this fountain works in my standard sized bird bath, and without the need to run wires, etc. As long as the sun is shining, the fountain will flow beautifully. Let's face it, if it's a gloomy day, we're not typically outside watching the fountain anyway, so it's a win-win! I love all things solar powered, so when I found this at an amazing price, I knew I had to have one! I've enjoyed it so much, my second one just arrived yesterday (August 27). I love that there are different attachments to suit your needs. If it's a super windy day, I change out the attachment so the water doesn't spray as high, thus the wind doesn't blow the water out of my bird bath and empty it. Just keep your bird bath (or whatever you place this in) filled with fresh, clean water and the sun and fountain will do the rest! Birds don't like stagnant water, so not only will you be happy watching your fountain, but the birds will love having a clean water source! You won't be disappointed!

    These Ankway Solar Bath Fountain Pumps, I bought two, work very well in my 30 X 60 natural pond. My ornamental fish love to swim through the spray, and even when the sun is behind a cloud they shoot a spray every few seconds. The only problem I had, was that I needed to anchor them in my pond as a stream runs through and washes them into the sides. I had to glue a little eye onto the bottom of the fountains to put a fishing line through and anchor weights. So far all is working. I've had them working for a month now, and have not had to clean them, even after all the incredible rainy storms we've had, so I am well satisfied. You've produced a grand product.

    Consider loosely corralling the fountain base with rocks or something else simple under the water to limit its movement around the birdbath in order to reduce the amount of water that is sprayed outside the basin by the fountain. Otherwise, the water level in a regular birdbath can be reduced in an hour or less so that the fountain touches the bottom of the birdbath. The fountain then continues to pump when no water is available. Not good for the fountain pump. I’m trying to build a simple gravity feed water supply from a hidden nearby water bottle to help keep the birdbath full for extended periods. All elements work well. Multiple nozzles included.

    This works well right out of the box. It includes multiple spray heads so you can find one you'll enjoy. The moment it hits even indirect sunlight, it started running as I was carrying it out to the birdbath earlier today, even though it was shady where I was. In the shade the water will not spray as well, but will it will still bubble away, then in full sun it sprays beautifully. Once I find a way to keep it in the center of the birdbath it will be even nicer, but I could definitely see this also free-floating in a pond.

    I love this product. There were so many similar choice I bought 2 from different companies. This product was definitely the superior of the two. The ' Ankway - Cute Solar Powered Bird Bath pump' comes with a variety of nozzles, suction cups on the bottom of the pump to hold it in position and an extra larger suction cup attachment. I also bought the Vic Tsing HO46 pump. It comes with the solar panel, pump and one nozzle. It doesn't have any suction cups. I had to place a rock in my birdbath to hold it in one spot. When it floats around spraying water it scares the birds so it needs to be fixed in a predictable spot. I considered returning it but performance is similar. This pump is definitely the better buy!

    Wonderful little pump! It is a great pump for the price and I love that the manufacturers of this pump have included 5 different caps that make different designs when water is dispensed. Unfortunately, my bird bath is not deep enough so the water ends up on the ground. If it is windy the water blows out of the birdbath. Had to put the fountain pump away.

    works perfectly. Sprays about 1 foot up from the surface of the water, pretty fountain! Only works when direct sun hits it, so cannot be used in the shade. Any amount of shade will stop the fountain. When I used it the wind was blowing and all the water eventually blew out of the fountain, so I made the holes in the spray nozzle larger, and lower the fountain. Now mine sprays about 5 inches, and that is perfect for me since it is always breezy here.

    I bought this over a year ago to put in my birdbath to provide some movement for the water to attract birds. I had no idea it was going to last so long and provide a steady stream (spray) of water when the sun was shining. It has different spray attachments and I finally picked one that gives about a one-foot tall spray of water. It has been a little workhorse that only requires an occasional rinsing to clean it.

    I bought this for my birdbath which is the bowl is 2 feet wide and 3" deep. I can't use any of the sprays at the water flies outside the birdbath and by the end of the day the water is all gone. The pump is very powerful and shoots the water up so high that if there is the slightest breeze the water never returns to the bowl. I have resigned myself to using no sprayers at all and that creates just a nice bubbling effect which is great and I'm finding the birds like it too. I would recommend this product but the buyers need to know the sprays really don't work in some birdbaths. There are birdbaths out there that our wider and deeper and that may be a better solution for the sprays.

    I WANT ANOTHER ONE!!! I love it, the birds live it and my grandkids love it. I don’t leave it on while I’m gone because the water does splash out a little. Just watching the birds play in it is therapeutic. As you can see all I have is a very large pasta bowl for my birdbath it attracts the birds to the hummingbird feeders. I am currently looking for a larger white or a bowl because I do have to refill this with water it tends to splash a little bit So the level of water goes down but I love this
