The solar pump is actually smaller than I had imagined it would be. For a small to medium bird bath it is the perfect size. I have a rather large Koi pond and it isn't strong enough to create a fountain like look. HOWEVER! This is an old Koi bond and I wanted to experiement. This does keep the water moving which is the main goal for me.
The pump starts working the second the solar panel sees sunshine. There is no battery back up so this doesn't work at night.
The pump is quiet. Small suction cups on the bottom keep it in place. 12' cord IS AWESOME because I can hide the cord under the ground cover and wrap the cord around a near by large granite rock so that wind or animals can't toss the whole thing in the pond.
Great pump for a small bird bath. Great price.
