Clean the solar panel.
Once you’ve assembled your solar fountain, it’s time to give it a good cleaning! If you’ve spent any time around fountains or ponds, then you know how quickly they can become dirty. To keep your fountain looking its best and running efficiently, we recommend using a soft cloth to wipe off any dirt or grime that may have collected on the solar panel.
Never use harsh chemicals on your solar panel as these could cause damage to your electronics and even void their warranty!
Put together the pump, tubing and spray head.
To begin, place the pump in the top of your fountain. Next, insert the tubing into the bottom of your fountain and connect it to your pump. Finally, place your spray head onto the top of your fountain. It’s important that you use our recommended brands as they are designed specifically for solar fountains.
Set-up the solar panel and fountain head.
- Connect the solar panel to the pump. The male end of the pump is on top and the female part is at the bottom. For this step, use pliers to secure them together.
- Connect the pump to your hose or tubing. Make sure you connect it securely so that it doesn’t come loose or get pulled out while in use!
- Connect your fountain head—this can be a small bucket, container or vase that has been drilled with a hole at least an inch deep in which you will place rocks or stones (you can find these at any hardware store). You could also fill this with water and add plant matter for an instant garden feature! If using rocks make sure they are smaller than any holes in your container since they may fall through otherwise if too big!!
Now that you’ve got your fountain, you can use it in your yard or garden. Plant some flowers around the fountain and add a fountain light to make it even more beautiful at night!
If you have small children in your house, you may want to consider getting a cover for the fountain so that they can play around without hurting themselves on sharp edges or getting dirty by splashing into the water. You can also get covers designed specifically for keeping out animals like cats and dogs if those are an issue in your home.

There are a few things to keep in mind when setting up your solar-powered fountain. First, choose an area that gets a lot of sunlight so that the pump will be able to run all day long (and night!) This is especially important if you live in an area with shorter days during winter months. Second, remember that water can damage the solar panel over time so make sure to clean it regularly (once every month or two). Finally – don’t forget about maintenance! You’ll want to replace parts like tubing every six months or so and check for leaks periodically throughout the year as well.
