Looking to add a little Zen to your home? Start outside by placing this eye-catching contemporary fountain in your yard or garden. With a black marble-like finish, this durable, lightweight polyresin water feature boasts a hexagonal pedestal topped with a ribbed sphere. Water soothingly bubbles out from the top of the orb, flowing down the surface, where it collects in the top of the pedestal and recirculates via the solar pump. This statement-making contemporary water fountain makes a crisp, clean accent piece and is also a beautiful way to bring your Asian-inspired garden to life.
Our solar-powered yard fountains are uniquely designed for beauty and practicality. Although this fountain looks substantial and commanding, it actually weighs just over 13 pounds thanks to the durable yet lightweight polyresin material. This means you can move the fountain around your landscape as-needed and can easily bring it indoors when temperatures are extreme. Polyresin is the go-to material used by manufacturers due to its ability to be shaped and detailed to look like natural material such as stone, granite and marble. This piece looks like it's made from a heavy, quality slab of marble. No one will ever guess differently. When entertaining guests outdoors in the evening and nighttime, they'll be charmed by the LED lighting that illuminates the bubbling water. For your convenience, the LEDs turn automatically on and off.
This Pedestal and Ball Solar with Battery Backup fountain comes with everything you need for fast, simple setup, including the fountain itself, a solar panel, a pump and two 16-foot cords to power the backup battery pack.
In strong sunlight, the pump operates using solar power, while the battery pack simultaneously collects and stores a charge. If it's cloudy or dark, the battery will activate and power the unit for as many as four hours when fully charged. If the batteries are depleted, the system automatically attempts to draw power from the solar panel, and will resume running once the sun comes out.
*Color can vary slightly on each fountain; additionally, computer monitor settings may affect the color you see onscreen. Therefore, slight color variation is not cause for return.
*Please note: Fountains should always be emptied and covered, or emptied and brought indoors, before freezing weather occurs.

If you have a special occasion where you want fully charge the battery so the fountain can operate on demand, turn the pump off to allow the panel to charge the battery without powering the fountain, so it obtains a full charge more quickly. This way, you can have the fountain ready to go for an evening party or event.
The included battery generally lasts from 12 to 18 months, but with repeated charge/discharge cycles it may eventually become less efficient, and its charge capacity may reduce. If the battery seems to be growing weak, you can try to boost-charge it: to do this, leave the fountain off for two to three sunny days to allow a full charge of the battery. If this does not help, you may need to replace the battery. Contact us at Serenity Health & Home Decor for replacement batteries - we can help.
As an upgrade, and if you need additional cord length to place this fountain to your liking, you may purchase a cable extension pack, which provides two additional 16-foot cables for the LED light and pump components, respectively.
