Identify a suitable area beside the pond to place your mini feature. Attach the black hose to the black hose connector on the mini feature figure and the other end onto the pump. Position the feature on the side of the pond where required and place the pump into the pond. Connect the end of the pump's power lead into the rear connector of the supplied solar panel and position the solar panel where it will recieve the sun's light for the longest, see steps 2 and 3. The feature will now start to work once the solar panel has recieved enough charge from the sun.
Remember that your feature will pulse water and not run continuously due to its innovative pulse technology which means the feature and its battery will run for longer, see step 4.
Please note that Sidney Stoat is designed to sit on the side of the pond only and not in the water. Do not submerge the solar panel into the water.
Join the bracket, tube and spike together and then attach the solar panel to the bracket. Slide the bracket into the bracket slot in the backside of solar panel.
You can also find a short tube with screws holes in the tube base. This part is provided for wall mounting if need it.
Insert the spike into the ground. Position the solar panel to face South as much as possible to make the most of the daylight hours. It’s important to locate the solar panel in the place where the solar panel is not shaded by trees, thrubs or buildings.
Solar Powered Pulse Timing Function:
The mini water features are designed to spout water intermittently and the pump will work at a pulse timing mode of approximately 2 seconds on and 5 seconds off as long as the battery has received enough charge from the solar panel. Positioning your solar panel correctly is very important as this will supply your battery with its maximum charge as shown in step 3
