Solar Powered Birdbath Fountain with Decorative Bird by Smart Solar
Just what I was looking for!
I'm thrilled with my purchase. I love the design and color. It is solar generated - (I have no direct access to an outlet for that area). It is priced within my budget. Thank you QVC. You did it again!
i put this together in a flash and have been enjoying it ever since. A real value for the money....keep it in lots of sun and it'll flow all day long as long as there is sunlight. It quits when a big cloud comes over, but that's what solar powered is all about. I really love this and plan on purchasing a couple more in the spring when I see them offered again.
Quit working within a short time of my purchase!
WE enjoyed it for a month and a half, then out of the blue, the solar quit functioning. It also corroded up with residue because of the rough enterior! Otherwise, we loved it!
MESSY & LOTS OF WORK
Solar is great, the problem is it gets all alged up and needs cleaning every other day. You have to keep it in the sun or it doesn't work, therefor algee grows quickly. Other than that its nice not to have to plug it in.
For the Birds
I love it and the birds love it! Need I say more? Just one little improvement: larger capacity bowl would be nice. I had a similar fountain a couple of years ago, but the pump only lasted a year. I hope this one lasts much longer.
The birds love it!
The birds love it! It was easy to assemble. Though, the diagram referring to the solar panel wires is different than the actual solar panel. You need to ensure the wire underneath the panel fits into the slot for the panel (if that makes sense). If for some reason you aren't happy with the solar panel; I suggest putting a rock in the center of the bird bath. I really like the depth of the bird bath. Don't forget: when the weather gets below 40*, disassemble and store indoors until next year's spring/summer!
Thank you QVC for "Easy Pay"!!!
Love This Birdbath/fountain
This was easy to assemble, lightweight, looks like real stone, and is a delight to behold! As other reviewers and the manufacturer caution, it only runs when there is sunlight directly on it, but It still looks great in garden and birds love it even when water is not flowing. My only complaint is that two decorative birds are provided but it is not possible to screw both in, as the predrilled holes are too close together...oh well! The second bird graces a nearby flowerpot. Still a terrific product and most enjoyable!
Just received and set-up was easy. But folks...solar means SUN so don't expect it to run in shady or cloudy conditions! The solitary stream shoots about 6" up but the umbrella stream isn't quite as perky but I enjoy it very much. Birds haven't been using it yet-maybe the black square solar panel bothers them...get over it! I replace water about every other day. Here in Ocean Co. NJ temps have been extreme lately and I assumed that moving water would have stayed a bit cooler in the bath-not so. But I love the birds so it's not a big deal to refill the bath and we both can chill out in our own way!
great gift i received
was surprised it is even cutier then on air. easy to put together and the birds love it.
Birds and I love it!!!
I ordered this darling birdbath in the weathered stone and love it.....our birds do too. We had a different fountain from Smart Solar with two tiers and a pineapple at the top tier. I really wanted to replace it because a raccoon trying to get at the water tipped the fountain over two times and broke the pineapple!!! I would have liked to get another of the two tier, but guess I'll have to wait until it comes back in stock. In the meantime, I love this fountain because it's shallow and the birds aren't afraid to get in and splash. They are drinking at it all day. We live in sunny CA, so have no problem with it running all day. The two little birds attached are so sweet!! I am very happy with this fountain!!
Exactly as shown in the video!!
This is a SOLAR fountain....it does NOT charge during the day and operate at night...it operates on SOLAR power....which means only when the sun is shining on it. I love this little birdbath. I live in the California valley where we get temperatures of up to 115 degrees in the summer. My little bird bath has no problem operating DURING THE DAY IN THE SUN!!! Previous reviewers were correct in that as soon as shade his it, it is done. The only problem I have with this bird bath is the same problem I would have with any bird bath and that is when it is 115 degrees outside, the water is VERY hot and no little bird will want to go to ANY birdbath. Watch the video, you have two choices of how you want the fountain to work....they show you EXACTLY how it will look! The little birds on the side are adorable. Super easy to put together and move around.
The birdbath is very cute, however, it hardly pumps the water. You have to look hard to see that any water is coming out. I had it in a sunny spot for two days so that wasn't the problem. I think the solar panel isn't strong enough to do a decent job. It was nothing like what they showed on TV. The only reason it gets 2 stars is for the color and design. You can buy a birdbath that does nothing for a lot less money. I ended up returning it.
