1.2 Watt Solar Power Water Pump Garden Fountain / &hellip by VicTsing
A solar panel that is properly waterproofed costs 5 x more than this whole thing. The pump has no filter and moves very little water, in fact it is isn't even designed like a proper pond pump.

Which makes this a great bargain or an annoyance depending on whether you want a "proper" system or a bit of a novelty...

If you wanted a proper fountain pump from solar solutions fountains it would be over two hundred pounds so as a novelty , fun bird bath fountain this is pretty good.

That doesn't mean that cheap solar stuff is a waste of money. I've bought a solar novelty bird bath for twenty quid and if it breaks at the end of the summer I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.
The sunjet fountains on the other hand are not throw away cheap, but they are still very likely to break and have really poor performance. If they were… Read more
