I really wanted this to work! It was the perfect solution for a remote vegetable plot in our garden in South West France where we have plenty of sunshine. And it did work - for a few weeks - then it would only pump for a few seconds and turn itself off. I guess there is a battery or electronics issue as on Amazon.com there are a host of reviews with the same problem. So, great design solution in a box, let down by shoddy components or manufacturing, which is a real shame. Back to Amazon for a refund I'm afraid and off shopping for a car battery and a caravan pump which will no doubt be cheaper and more reliable.

Has anybody told the manufacturer of this item, that their expensive solar ??? powered pump DOES NOT WORK, in the cloudy uk .
It must be the only solar panel in history that requires FULL SUNLIGHT. Well i live in the north east of England and we do not get enough sunshine to charge the battery,i have had the solar pump kit set up for over a week now, and everytime the sun pops out, off it goes flashing to indicate it IS charging, but oh no, the sun has just gone in... So it stops charging......well its 9 days later and it has not even reached about 20% charge..WASTE OF MONEY.. I DO NOT RECOMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANYONE NOT LIVING IN A DESERT

This little pump works well. Very pleased with it. Very easy to install and set up, everything was straightforward. Does what it says on the box.

I bought this water pump for my mothers eightieth birthday. I had watched her lugging her watering can around the garden. My mother loves to be as eco friendly as possible. Her water is on a meter so she will only use rain water for the garden. My mum is now eighty two and the pump is still working beautifully. I gave this product four stars it lost one over the price being very high compared with an electric pump. However if you were to ask my mother she would say it's worth every penny and she would give it 5 stars. She loves it so much she is ordering another one for her other water butt attached to the green house.
Pros;
You don't need a professional to install it. Any one can
As long as you have a water butt everything you need is in the kit.
The solar panel is small and green so not unsightly.
the solar panel is easy to position so that it gets the most sunlight.
Mum has used the ground spike that came with the kit to secure it in her flower bed.
The water is pumped out under greater pressure so watering time is reduced.

Cons
Price (but not according to Mum)

This was the perfect system for my allotment. We had a great summer and it had plenty of time to charge (set up strictly to their instructions). For the first 2 months it was great, then battery life got shorter and shorter until it did about 3 beds even though it had been charging in full sunshine from sun up to sun down (previously did 24 beds with the same charge). As said in the title great idea but quality of either the solar panel or the batteries is poor. Would not recommend if you want this to serve you over a long period ( 3 months or more)

What a remarkable little pump. I am using it to fill a header tank for an irrigation system and after only 45 minutes of charge it fired water up 2.2 mts and filled a 20 gallon tank!

Worked well for the first month or so. But now only pumps for a few seconds before switching off. There is obviously a problem with the battery pack but I am unable to find any available spares.
