I bought this for a small 5 gal container where I do have some fish. It worked great. The fish lived the plants grew nice and sitting on the porch the sound of the water was very soothing. The atachments did make the water go up to high. I simply made some extra holes with a nail. It worked good. It would be nice if the panell could hold some charge for the evening hours. I was so pleased with this inexpensive solar powered pump I actualy went and bought 2 more.

I am on my second fountain. I bought the first in march and then the pump quit so I had to exchange for new. Luckily it was within the 90 days!
I have this fountain in a small landscape pond with fish, frogs and plants. (Although it does have a warning not to use it with fish. Not sure why! Had 1/6 goldfish die, but I doubt the fountain was the cause). It is just the right size for my 155 gallon pond. This is my first water garden project so it suits my needs.
I do have trouble with some sludge in my pond that clogs the filter, so every few days I have to take it apart and clean the filter. Need to come up with some sort of secondary filter that goes around it to see if that helps any.
Overall it is a very neat unit for the price!

      Comments about Pacific Hydrostar Solar Powered Fountain Pump:

      Have had mine for 3 years! We like it so much we are wanted it to run on cloudy days too so we have hooked it up to our 12 V electrical system (for we are off the grid). If you want it to keep running you have to keep it from clogging. I installed it underneath a piece of foam for fish tanks- with just the spout sticking through. Then I put river rocks on top with small stones inbetween so all the water that reaches the pump is filtered from debris. I also put in an algacide. The bird bath still has to be cleaned about once a month but it is so delightful to watch even the hummers take showers!

      Comments about Pacific Hydrostar Solar Powered Fountain Pump:

      I've had two so far, and you'd be surprised at what you can use them for other than a fountain pump. Since it's solar powered, that also means it runs off of DC. I actually disconnected the solar panel, and have use them to empty things, as a pump on an RV swamp cooler, of course on a fountain, and as a bilge pump for a boat.

      But perhaps the coolest thing is I actually made a remote controlled boat with one. They are easily capable of running off of 12v (which means you can hook them up to a car battery), and mine have been for well over a year now with no problems.

      Comments about Pacific Hydrostar Solar Powered Fountain Pump:

      I bought 2 of these. 1 was for a little pond of ours in the front yard (but it got green pretty fast), and the other was for whatever I decided. It ended up working perfectly for the Coleman evaporative cooler on my camper. The original pump went out, and I had one of these laying around. The hose fit perfectly onto one of the adapters, and I wired it to the 12 volts for the camper.

      I plan on using another one for a little r/c boat project of mine, to pump the water out so I can drive it around in the ocean (wish me luck!)

            Comments about Pacific Hydrostar Solar Powered Fountain Pump:

            Great for replacing pumps on shorter fountains.
            Coating on solar panel requires constant buffing.
            Motor VERY SIMPLE to fix and maintain (i.e. one moving impeller makes almost unbreakable)
            IF THE PUMP STOPS DETERMINE WHICH COMPONENT IS AT FAULT (i.e. panel, wires, pump) then
            1.) if it is the panel, clean and buff the coating]
            2.) if it is the wire break out the solder and heat shrink wrap
            3.) if it is the motor take off the riser and CAREFULLY manipulate the impeller to loosen debris

            If all these attempts fail, only then can you say the system has a true fault.

            REMEMBER: the pumps starts working at ~6 volts, and the less stress the motor is under the longer it will last. (i.e. angle the panel just slightly away from the sun to get optimal life span)

              I needed a small pump for a fountain in the garden. This works well.. and has worked well for over a year. The only problem is, the solar panel needs direct sunlight. If there is any shade (even on a sunny day) it doesn't work.

              PS: My fountain is only 8 or 9 inches up.. This works well at that height.

              Comments about Pacific Hydrostar Solar Powered Fountain Pump:

              I bought two of these in a bird bath in front yard, getting sun most of day. One failed within a week and stayed broke, not pumping any water. Other one worked very well from start, pushing water high. When good one sputtered, I took garden hose and sprayed water forcefully around spray holes and around base, then it worked again. I added a few TBS of bleach to water, and it sprayed higher for a longer time. Thinking maybe bleach dissolved algae around brushing or moving part of solar base. Happy with one that works. Just so you know, this will NOT work for weeks at a time without frequent clearing or cleaning of water debris around base pumping.
