The pineapple top is always a customer favorite on tiered water fountains and is now available on this 46" tiered solar fountain with battery backup. At almost 4-feet tall this fountain is sure to accent any landscaped area to a "T" and bring birds for your enjoyment as well. Enjoy the beauty of a fountain with the attraction of a birdbath with this two-tier fountain. Designed as a self-sustaining outdoor fountain, water is continuously pumped through the pineapple.
This solar fountain with battery backup runs in direct sunlight, but has a battery unit as well which will power the fountain on overcast or cloudy days. 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. A fully charged battery will power the fountain up to 4 hours. To run on battery mode simply press the Battery On/Off button. The battery will now power the pump. When the battery power is depleted, the system will automatically change back to solar powered mode and start again when there is sufficient sunlight. You can operate the fountain daily using the battery technology for consistent performance even in cloudy conditions, or leave your fountain off, charging the batteries for use when you want it. A wonderful combination of solar energy and consistent performance.
*Color can vary slightly on each fountain. Lighting can be different indoors and out as well as differences in computer monitor lighting. Some fountains may appear darker because of lighting conditions. Therefore, slight color variation is not a cause for return.
*Please note fountains should always be emptied and covered, or emptied and brought indoors before freezing weather occurs.

Dry Run Protection Pump Technology:Typical pumps continue to run when the fountain is low on water or runs dry causing the pump to burn out and need to be replaced. This fountain includes new dry run protection technology so if the fountain runs low on water the pump will automatically shut off to save the life of your pump.
The Battery Pack:The lifespan of a battery generally lasts between 12-18 months, but with repeated charges and discharge cycles the battery capacity may reduce. You can try to boost charge the battery by leaving it off for 2-3 sunny days to allow maximum charge. If the boost charge does not help the battery than 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 rechargeablebatteries.
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.
