Q: How do I clean my water feature?
We recommend that all our water features are cleaned every 2-3 weeks. To clean it, disassemble the water feature and empty the water. Gently rinse the inside of the bowl with clean, lukewarm water to loosen any debris. Using a clean, soft cloth dipped in lukewarm water, gently rub the surface of the water feature to wipe off dirt and unwanted particles. Do not use any harsh chemicals, such as bleach, or any hard-wire bristle brushes to avoid damaging the finish. Reassemble the water feature and refill with clean, fresh water.

Q: How do I get my pump apart to clean it?
For birdbaths, lift the panel and remove the pump. For 2-tier birdbaths, lift the first tier to reveal the pump and detach from the tubing. Detach the pump away from the tubing or panel. Pull the pump in half at the seam. The filter is visible in one half, so gently remove and rinse with clean water. Replace the filter back into that half of the pump. Remove any algae in the other half by rinsing with clean water. Gently push the two halves back together. Reattach to the birdbath by pushing the pump back onto the panel and placing into the recess of the birdbath. For two-tier birdbaths, replace the pump onto the end of the tubing and place the first tier back into the water feature.

Q: Can I leave my water feature outside all year round?
We recommend that all our water features are stored inside during winter and whenever there is frost or very cold temperatures. You should empty the fountain of all water, dry it off, and store the entire product indoors in a dry and frost-proof environment before you get any freezing temperatures. Simply empty the water out of the fountain. Covering it for the winter is not considered proper winter storage and any damage that may occur will not be covered under the warranty.

Q: My water feature does not work. What do I do?
First, check that the fountain is positioned correctly, receiving sunlight, and not in any shade. Second, check that the connections between the pump and panel are correctly made and that there is no sign of rust or corrosion. Next, check that the filtered hole in the pump is clear and not clogged with dirt or debris. Finally, clean the water feature by gently rinsing the bowl with lukewarm water to prevent debris from building up in the pump and replace with clean, fresh water. We recommend regular maintenance and water changes to ensure optimum performance.

Q: My pump runs very loudly and doesn't pump. What do I do?
The pump can become clogged with debris and may need to be cleaned. Guidance on this is stated above. If the water feature is running out of water, the pump can make a loud noise as it runs dry. Make sure the pump is fully submerged by topping up the water level in the water feature.

Q: How does my water feature work?
The solar panel uses photovoltaic cells to convert energy from the sun into electricity. This electricity is then used to power the pump and circulate the water or create a fountain effect. Performance is directly related to the amount and strength of sunlight received on the solar panel. This product is designed primarily to operate in summer months but will also work in spring and autumn, provided there is adequate sunshine.

Solar Powered 3-tiered Birdbath & Fountain by Smart Solar 2.8 5 98 98
Great fountain This fountain is perfect and does exactly what it says it will. So many are giving bad reviews because it only works in direct sunlight - it advertised that way! There is a different solar panel that stores the battery power if you want this to work on a cloudy day. The beauty of this is that it is not electric, but some reviewers are forgetting that and expecting the features of an electric fountain. This is versatile and adds a great touch to that garden you don't have electricity in. My second smart solar fountain, two of my best purchases! 05-18-13
Love I have had this for one year now. It works exactly as said, when the sun shines on it it will work beautifully. Cleaned the pump once during the summer and after the winter it is again delighting me and the birds. I also make sure to refresh the water as needed. 04-30-13
Beautiful and functional I received this item as a gift, and I love it. We were moving, so saved it for the new place. Just got it out and put together over the weekend, and it is absolutely beautiful. It is well-made and the dark brown finish I received looks like a rich, aged iron. It was easy to put together, and it works very well. You do need to make sure it's positioned in direct sunlight. I have a north-facing patio that is pretty shady. I have it in the front corner, so it runs from about 10 a.m. to around 5 or 6 p.m. I plan to get some small, floating LED lights to put in it at night. I have had other fountains that were not nearly as well-made and realistic looking. I also LOVE not having an electrical cord to deal with that looks messy and limits positioning even more than the solar. We use it without the extender in the top bowl, and the sound it makes it just a lovely trickle and bubble--perfect!! Other electrical-pump fountains I've had were difficult to adjust so you didn't have a lot of overspray (which meant you needed to refill the water ALL the time AND the overflowing water left calcium deposits all down the side). I am so looking forward to many hours of reading, napping and visiting on my patio this season accompanied by the beautiful burble of this fountain. 04-30-13
GREAT-LOOKING BIRDBATH--JUST WHAT I WANTED! I had heard that birds like shallow pans and water that moves a little and this has both. Under our pergola, it gets intermittent shade, so it doesn't stay bubbling all the time. I bought it with the "on-demand" option (which cost quite a bit extra, but I think I will use), which I have not yet installed, to enable it to function when there are unfavorable lighting conditions. I may move it further back in the yard to get the birds to enjoy it more. I was especially pleased that this birdbath/fountain came with several options. It's light enough that I can remove the top 2 tiers and put them on a table on my screened porch and still have the pedestal hold the shallow dish. (Maybe I'll take a nap out there, lulled by the water sounds.) Also, I can change the look and sound of the water from bubbling to spraying by changing the nozzle. Also, I can fit it with the "on-demand" solar panel to turn it on at night or on cloudy days. I like looking at it. (My husband thought it was funny that I ran to the window first thing in the morning to see if it was running.) The finish looks good with any architecture. It's hard to believe it doesn't weigh a ton. 04-29-13
Nice addition to garden I have wanted a fountain for some time. The free shipping and easy pay helped me make a decision on this one. I read the negative reviews and found one very positive review which stated the customer had been able to replace the solar panel via the company that made the fountain. I was hesitant due to living in the desert. My fountain worked right out of the box, so easy to assemble. It is in direct sun most of the day. While it is small it provides the pleasant sound of trickling water and is a nice addition to my garden. I am hoping the high heat will not cause anything to crack, but the other person's review, gave me the assurance that the company would replace the solar panel or handle other issues. As with any purchase from QVC or the common garden supply stores, the purchase is as good as the company that backs it's products. 04-29-13
Disappointing Ordered this fountain nearly a month ago. Living in the mid-west, today was the first day we had a warm and sunny day, all day. My husband put it together, and said it was easy to assemble. All of the pieces did fit well. He set it up on on deck which is on the south side of the house. There were absolutely no clouds in the sky and still no leaves on the trees. Despite the direct sunlight all afternoon, the fountain never once "started up." Despite it looking nice, it is too much money to use as a bird bath only, so it is going back. 04-26-13
Fun in the Sun I was concerned about this because of some of the reviews.....I like it a lot, especially the versatility of being able to move the top portion of the fountain. 04-23-13
fell over and broke-didn't even have it a week!!! as this works nicely, it is top heavy, it fell over and the second bowl (middle broke). Haven't even paid for it yet and it is broke. Bottom should be bigger to make it more stable. 04-20-13
loving the fountain I love this fountain but give it a 4 out of 5 because if I put the little sprout piece on it the sun at this time of year is not strong enough I guess to run it so I can only have the stream not the pretty spout. Otherwise it is a very nice item. It just needs very very very strong sun to run the pump. 04-18-13
Love this I have gotten four solar fountains from QVC but this the ones that the birds love to come and drink from, stop and take a bath and just fight over. It work so great the water comes up two inches from the top. With the flowers that I have also got from qvc the yard is looking better all the time. But the flowers do need two years in which to take off. I am back for another fountain just like this for the front yard.. 04-17-13
okay I'm giving this a 3 star because it only will work during bright sunlight. It stops around 2 pm here. :( :( I do think it cost way too much money for the little bit of flowing it does. I would not recommend it especially at the price I paid for it. 04-15-13
