This water feature combines a rustic, old-world charm with clever modern technology. It is solar powered, which means it is environmentally friendly and economical to run, and it features a memory function which allows it to switch on at the same time every day. This beautiful piece is elegant, reliable, and user-friendly. Harnessing the sun's rays for power, this birdbath is friendly to the environment and your wallet.
Built-in solar panels in the basin store power from sunlight and power both the feature's pump, and LED lights. This also means that this feature requires absolutely no digging to install, simply place the birdbath where you want it and get started. The fountain will run automatically each day, as soon as the battery has enough power to run the pump, and it will continue to run for up to one hour after the sun has stopped feeding the panel/battery. If you want the fountain to run again, you can switch it off and back on again, and it will run for a continuous 6 hours(depending on charge levels), then revert to standard operation.
If you don't want the fountain to run at all, setting the switch to the off position will simply charge the battery ready for use.

Mains Power vs Solar Power. The traditional way to install a water feature is to connect it to your main power supply, although solar powered water features are a great option, there are also benefits to choosing a mains powered feature. Power is better to effectively run larger water features. These tend to have higher energy requirements, so a mains connection is required for reliable usage.
Solar powered features are great for smaller features and birdbaths as they usually require less power. Mains powered water features allow for prolonged use. Solar panels only last as long as they have stored up power and will only work if there is good weather. Mains powered water features will work in any weather and in limited sunlight. Tips on Installation and Maintenance.A lot of water features come pre-assembled for the most part, with just a little hose/pump connecting to do before plugging it in to a mains socket. Some of our bigger ones require wiring in a plug (which might involve a Part P Certified electrician), but otherwise all instructions will be included. To create our high specification, long-lasting water features, we use 304-grade stainless steel which contains high levels of chromium making it resistant to corrosion. Stainless steel is very resistant to rust because the chromium in the metal reacts with oxygen to form a protective layer. If this layer is broken down by mechanical damage or a powerful cleaning agent and rust does appear, simply remove the rust and the chromium oxide layer will reform.
As well as it's hard-wearing features, grade 304 stainless steel is perfect for both contemporary and classical water feature designs, the highly polished finish of stainless steel is great for reflecting light into shaded areas of the garden. If the feature has a reservoir that requires sinking underground, then the ground can be marked out to the exact size using perhaps a stick, gravel or sand. Sit the reservoir in the hole and make sure it is level.If you have enough room sit the pump on a flat stone so that it is not on the bottom of the reservoir and so helping the pump stay clear. Why do some Water Features come without a plug? We don't always supply a plug with a water feature, it depends on the product, style of feature, pump supplied and likely location that the product maybe installed. All of our products are designed for ease of installation there are however, a specific set of rules set out by the building regulations which must be adhered too: "Building Regulations - Part P" this is a government directive which states that any NEW PERMANENT household or garden electrical supply must be installed by a competent Part P Certified electrician.
Some of our products wont require a permanent installation, its worth considering a number of things in order to ensure you safely install your feature or seek the help and advice of a qualified electrician. Where are you going to place your product?
Is there available power in the garden? - Outdoor sockets for example. Will it permanently be in this location?Do you have existing power in the garden near the location. If in any doubt seek the advice of a Part P Certified electrician. Full details of Part P available.
