What comes with your Liberty Stone Trough and Tap

Step 1

Identify a suitable area where your new water feature can be placed, make sure the ground area is level and free from large stones

Step 2

Carefully remove components from the box, lay them on a flat surface. The power set is not pre-connected, this is a straight forward process and all connections are colour coded for easy use, please see step 4 and step 5 for further details.

Step 3

Fix the LED light to the post in the bottom of trough, feed the LED light cable through the cable hole, cable exits out from the control panel access in back side of the tap column, ready for connection to the control panel. (see diagram at the bottom of this section)

Step 4 

You can find a hose underneath the tap column, connect the pump to the hose, then place the pump into the cabinet in the trough to hide it. The pump cable exits out from the control panel access in back side of the tap column, ready connections to the control panel. (see diagram)

Step 5

Attach the blue plug of the pump into control panel’s blue socket (see diagram and pic A). Attach the orange plug of the LED light cable divider into control panel’s orange socket (see diagram and pic B). Don’t forget to close the control panel’s yellow port with the rubber socket protector. The yellow port is used for recharging and connecting to a solar panel which is sold separately (see pic B). Insert the control panel into the side access panel. Please note there is a small hole beside the access panel. This hole will be used to feed the solar panel cable through to connect with control panel when you upgrade to a solar panel.

Step 6

Place the feature in your chosen location and fill the features reservoir with water, making sure the pump Is fully submerged. The recommended amount of water is 20 litres (5.29 gallons).

Step 7

Twist the locking nut on the dark green door on the front of the control panel. Insert the yellow lithium battery and close the door, twist the locking nut to ensure no moisture can get to the battery. The feature is now ready for use and is designed to turn on/off with the manual button or the built in timer functions for 2/3/4 hour intervals can be used.

Step 8

The battery comes with a small pre-charge power for immediate use. For best results, it is advised to charge the battery fully before using it for the first time. In order to charge the battery to full power, you can use the provided USB charger and cable with micro USB connector to charge the battery in the home. A Red indicator light will illuminate while the battery is charging. When the battery has full power, the indicator light will turn Green. Charging the battery will take approximately 5 hours.

Step 9

Using the control panel:

Timer function modes (A,B): Press the timer function mode switch (A) to select the desired time, press this switch repeatedly to select the required time 2, 3 or 4 hours (B). The indicator light on the timer function modes will illuminate blue on the selected time (B). The timer mode will now come on every day at the same time for the same length of time. For example: If you require the feature to come on every day at 5pm for 2 hours you will need to press the timer function mode switch (A) on at 5pm and until the blue indicator light is lit under the number 2 (B). The feature will now come on every day at 5pm for 2 hours, This process can be repeated for the 3 and 4 hour settings.

Continual use or Sun only mode (C):

Press the on/off switch (C). The power indicator light will illuminate to show that the feature has been switched on (D). The feature will now run continuously until the battery runs out of power. If the optional solar panel upgrade has been installed the feature will run continuously all the time the panel receives energy from the sun and the battery still has charge. The solar panel will run and re-charge your feature for you, reducing the need to manually re-charge your battery.
