A month after getting this aerator, our goldfish spawned. We had about 10 of these little black fish in the pond one day, baby goldfish! Was it the aerator that made the goldfish frisky? They are a lot happier, now the water is clearer and nicer looking. This is a decent aerator and solar panel. It seems pretty efficient (and has a surprisingly small solar panel) and comes on even on cloudy days. It isn't the most powerful aerator, and has only one air stone, but it is quiet. Some other makes have two air stones and greater air flow, but we are quite happy with this one, and the fish are too. Evidently.

I recommend this product, especially for the money. Best suited to small ponds (mine is 6 x 5 feet, and the effect - bubbles and water current - only extends to one quarter of it).
Assembly and installation is easy-peasy and - providing the solar panel gets full sunshine - it produces a good air stream. There is plenty of lead cable (between the solar panel and the pump) and equally more air tube than you are likely to need (if, not, you could buy a longer air line separately).
The pump needs to sit on clear level ground - e.g. on paving, rather than earth - since the air intake is on its underside.
It does not work well in sub-sunshine conditions and it is with noting that there is no energy storage in this - it simply uses available light to power the pump. If you put you hand in front of the solar pane - creating shade - the pump stops; as literal as that! But this is not a criticism - it works fine.

I've got this little solar air pump bubbling some additional oxygen into my pond to supplement the oxygenating plants which didn't appear to be doing much.

On a bright sunny summer day this little contraption whirrs away furiously pumping plenty of air into the pond and leaves most of the pond surface covered in bubbles just as much as a small mains-powered air pump could.

Even on an overcast British summer day it still manages to pump a steady amount of air into the pond.

And best of all - even in the middle of winter when the solar panel received no direct sunshine whatsoever it still managed to put a small single trickle of air bubbles into the pond for a few hours each day.

Only on the dullest, most miserable of days does it stop pumping completely.

Arrived a day late. It is working very well even on a cloudy day it is still working. I would recommend it. Hope it continues.

Item received on time easy to assemble up and running after 3 days waiting for the sun to appear. Does esoteric do a device that dispersed cloud????Lol. I wouldn't say there are thousands of bubbles but this little device gives of its best and is pretty effective.

Stops whenever the sun goes behind a cloud and starts when it comes out again - rather disappointing performance considering it's mid-June so the sun is at it's strongest.

Very good item, arrived promptly. Bubbles very well when the sun shines which is when the pond needs extra oxygen.
