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!

        It circulates the water as soon as the sun hits the solar panel and shuts down when it doesnt , thats all I need in my little water garden.

          • Add Water Movement
          • Aerate Small Pond

          Comments about Pacific Hydrostar Solar Powered Fountain Pump:

          If a cloud passes in front of the sun, it drops pressure, but in full sunlight, it will put out a spray about 12" by 12". Its great for aerating a small fish tank. I have an outdoor tank that is 18" deep x 5' wide x 12' long that I use to breed mosquito fish, and it works great in keeping the water aerated.
          That is a good price, in fact I'm going to go get a second Fountain Pump for the other end of the tank. The best feature for me is that I don't have to run electricity to the pond.
          The pump is strong enough that it will make a nice spray, but small enough that it wont suck up the small fish.

          Works great for my sons small pond but like any solar powered product, it requires DIRECT sunlight.
          No shade or even partial shade. Tilting the solar panel to remain flat towards the sun helps a lot.

              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!)
