This solar fountain is amazing. It doesn't take much for it to get started pumping and spraying out water. It has several different types of sprays that it comes with, you can change them out very easily and it makes it so much fun. Super easy to set up, put the pump under the solor panel where there is an area that is a perfect fit, and then put the different parts together and pick the spray you want to use, put it on the top and set the entire solar fountain in water and within a few minutes the pump will start flowing water, that is as long as there is sun shining on the solar panel. The pump shoots it up pretty far into the air depending on which one you use. It looks really awesome in my birdbath.
