Milano Lion's Head Solar Fountain
I purchased this fountain one year ago. I did not wish to pay an electrician to run an underground cable to our flower garden and I did not want a visible extension cord there either so my wife and I were looking for a solar operated fountain. We chose this one as it is aestheticly pleasing and the solar panel is actually on the top of the fountain. It comes in three, relatively light weight sections and is easy to assemble. The upper tier contains the solar panel and pump. It is important to make sure the water level is above the pump level. The bowl in which the water sits is easy to clean. It worked ok at first but quickly became underpowered. In a short time it stopped pumping. I know a little about electronics so I tested the parts and found the solar panel was not putting out enough power to run the pump. I contacted the manufacturer and to their credit, they replaced the panel (but not after a long, long wait for delivery and when the warm season was over). I hooked up the new panel a couple of weeks ago and so far it is operating impressively. When working properly, this solar fountain is impressive and the best thing is, it's using free energy from the sun. The birds love it. I even had a wood duck visit it for a drink. My one gripe would be the use of a NiMH battery rather than a preferred Lithium Ion battery. I don't expect the battery to last a long time whereas you can often get 10 years out of a cared for li-ion. I also don't have a lot of confidence in the solar panel but we'll see.

This product came safely to my home and sits in the front yard as a focal point to the entry way. It is a great match to the stonework on my house. The water pressure is a bit dissapointing, but it is beautiful without having it turned on. It may have better pressure as summer brings forth more sunlight - we will see.
