Introduction
Thank you for purchasing a Solar Birdbath Fountain. These
instructions contain important information for using this product.
Please keep them in a safe place for future reference.
If within 24 months from the date of purchase this product fails
due to a defect in material or workmanship, Smart Solar will
replace or repair free of charge.
Please report immediately if there is any damage or missing
pieces upon receipt of goods.
Before you start
The warranty does not apply to:
The solar panel will power the pump when exposed to direct
sunlight. If the sun passes behind a cloud then the amount of
electricity produced by the panel will decrease and the pump will
stop working or slow down. As soon as the sun reappears from
behind the cloud the amount of electricity will increase instantly
and the pump will begin to work again.
Damage caused by accidents, abuse, poor handling, frost or
normal wear and tear. Products which have been subject to
unauthorized repair or modification.
For further information please contact your nearest customer
service centre detailed on the last page of this manual.
Waste electrical products should not be disposed of with
household waste. Please recycle where facilities exist. Check with
your local authority or retailer for recycling advice.
Decide on an appropriate outdoor location for your water feature.
Ideally this should be on a flat surface. A solar panel powers the
pump by converting sunlight into electricity.
The amount of electricity produced by the solar panel is
proportional to the strength of sunlight received. For optimum
performance we recommend that your solar panel should be
exposed to as much direct sunlight as possible and away from
shady areas e.g. under trees.

sprinkles down into the resin bowl. The water is constantly
re-cycled.

Please note: If you are away from home for more than 2-3 days,
remove the solar pump unit and insert the spare resin plate.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Pump: If after time the pump starts to lose power or stops working
you should check for the build up of sediment or scale in the bottom
of the pump housing. Carefully remove the solar pump unit and turn
it upside down on a soft surface. Dry the solar pump connector and
disconnect.
Remove the pump from the plastic unit and open the pump housing
at its base. Remove the impeller and remove any dirt or scale which
has built up. Replace the impeller and replace the pump cover.
Turn upside down on a soft
surface and attach the pump unit

Assembling and Using Your Product
Unpack all components carefully.
Please ensure that you check all parts have been removed from the
packaging. Decide on a suitable location, bearing in mind there will
be some water splashes when the product is in use.
Assemble the plastic coated stand. There are six connection points.
Place the resin bowl onto the top ring.
Attach the pump to the tube on the bottom of the solar unit. Do not
use force. Place the solar pump unit over the central hole in the
resin bowl and fill with water.
Connect stand at indicated points
The Solar Birdbath Fountain is now ready to use.
The birdbath can operate with or without the fountainhead fitted. If
using the fountainhead please check regularly that there is no
excessive splashing causing the reservoir to run dry.
Please Note: We recommend you use distilled or rain water to
prevent scale build up.
Clean the sprinkler head

Please note: On first use there may be air in the pump. It can take
up to 5 minutes until all the air is expelled and water begins to
sprinkle from the fountain head.
IMPORTANT
To ensure the seal remains water-tight twist the pump and panels
connectors together rather than merely pressing them together.
Check that the small yellow rubber "o" ring remains in its' groove
and is not pushed out when connecting. If this ring moves there will
be no water seal and the pump and panel will eventually fail
Solar panel: The panel should be cleaned periodically with a soft
tissue and proprietary glass cleaning solution. Regular cleaning of
the panel is advised to maintain optimum conversion of the sun’s
energy into direct current.

Trouble Shooting
If you have any problems please contact Smart Solar before
returning to the place of purchase. For immediate answers visit our
website www.smartsolar.com where you will find an extensive
trouble shooting section with frequently asked questions, instant
email enquiry forms and place spare part orders.
Pump is noisy there is no water running through the tube
Take off the pump cover and remove the impeller. If the pump is still
noisy without the impeller then seek a replacement. If the noise
stops, clean the pump and replace the impeller and cover. This
problem may repeat if the water contains debris, we recommend
regular water changing.
Pump does not operate even though the solar panel is in full
sunlight
Check whether the impeller is blocked by removing the pump cover.
If it is, then clean the pump as detailed above.
Pump does operate but there is no water running through the
tube
1) Check for the build up of sediment, scale or dirt in the filter and in
the bottom of the pump housing as detailed above.
2) Check whether the pump cover is attached properly. If the pump
cover is not pushed down tightly, the pump will not push water
through the fountain head.
3) If fitted, check that the sprinkler head is not blocked. Remove the
cap and rinse the parts in water to clean before re-assembling.
