Our 5 Watt Solar Pump and Solar Panel Kit With Battery Pack and LED Light with 56" Lift is ideal for creating your own water fountain, to add features to an existing pond -- either your own design or with the included fountain heads, or to retrofit your own electric water fountain.
With a battery that stores energy -- while the pump operates -- the pump can run several hours without sun, including during cloud cover and at night.
Improve the health of your pond with a 132 gallon per hour (GPH) circulating capacity and a maximum lift of 56 inches when using a .5 inch diameter tube (not included), it's an economical choice compared to our 8 or 10 watt pumps.
Please note we always recommend using our Hydraulic Head Calculator to select the best pump for your project.
The solar panel powers the pump and charges the battery. An included LED light will highlight your water feature at night, as long as there is power in the battery.
Solar On Demand Technology
This pump can operate on solar power when set to the "On" position. In good sunlight conditions, the pump will be powered by solar energy. Simply press the battery on/off button to run on battery power.
When fully charged, the batteries will power the pump for up to four hours. When the batteries are depleted, you can press the battery on/off button to switch to sun power, and also recharge the battery.
Choose between letting the pump run on its own, or control it using the included options. (Instructions are included; please call us with questions.
For example, set the pump "off" so that the pump will not work at daytime hours. It then will run off of the battery at dusk, when mosquitoes are often most active.
When you want to run the pump in the evening simply turn the pump on and the pump will run until the battery is depleted. (Additional features are available, so please ask us for instructions if you need help.)
The battery generally lasts between 12-18 months, but will last the longest when the battery is used with a full solar charge.
