Beautiful Two Tiered Design! On the solar powered mode, the fountain will run directly from solar energy; however, the pump will only work in bright and sunny conditions. To run on battery mode simply press the Battery On/Off button. The battery will now power the pump. On the battery mode, you can power your fountain for up to 4 hours on cloudy days or at night. When the battery power is depleted, the system will automatically change back to solar powered mode and start again when there is sufficient sunlight. You can operate the fountain daily using the battery technology for consistent performance even in cloudy conditions, or leave your fountain off, charging the batteries for use when you want it.
Note: Color can vary slightly on each fountain. Lighting can be different indoors and out as well as differences in computer monitors so slight color variation is not a cause for return.
Replace the batteries with standard AA size rechargeable batteries.
Special Care: During freezing weather, the fountain needs to be brought indoors; or completely emptied, dried out, and well covered.
