This pump can operate on solar power when set to the "On" position. In good sunlight conditions, the pump will be powered by solar energy. In addition, the battery pack will be recharged via solar energy. If it is a cloudy day or night time the battery can run the pump. Simply press the battery on/off button to run on battery power. If fully charged, the batteries will power the pump for up to four hours. When the batteries are depleted, you can press the battery on/off button to switch to sun power. The pump will then be powered by the solar panel, and the pump will resume running when the sun comes out. You can alwayscontact usat Serenity Health if you need to purchase replacement batteries.
If you have a special occasion where you wanted the pump to run only in the evening, this can be done too using this smart solar kit. During the day set the pump to the off position. Under this option the battery will store the power and not run. When you want to run the pump in the evening simply turn the pump on and the pump will run until the battery is depleted.
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 two to three 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.Contact usfor replacement batteries.
This kit comes with two 16-foot cables for the pump and LED light to connect to the solar panel. For an additional purchase, you can add a 16-foot cable extension pack for your pump and LED light, giving you 32 feet for placement of your solar panel. This is a great option for those who want to wire the unit from the house, a shed or a far-off power source.
