1.Solar panel and ground spike
- Connect the two solar panels and the NPUT; cable on the back of the battery station through the Y connector
and the extension cable as shown in the figure above, and then tighten the plug protection screws.
- Install the solar module at a sunny place, adjust the angle and make sure the solar panels are facing SOUTH toward mid day sun
Insert the pump plug to the 18V OUTPUT (port 3 ) socket of the battery back-up, and also tighten the screw.
- Mount the hose connection to the Pump Outlet by using the enclosed gland nut.
Thanks to the ball joint design, the angle of the hose connection could be adjusted under water when necessary.
- Attach the hose onto the outlet of the hose connection. The hose connection is suitable for various hose diameters (inside diameter 25,32 or 38 mm).
- Place the pump fully underwater.
- Turn the switch to the position "ON". The green LED illuminates. The solar pump is starting to operate.
The LED may illuminate RED while it operates at first time, because the battery will lose energy slowly in stock.
It just needs to be charged for 2 to 3 hours in the sunlight, then it will change to GREEN and the pump starts to work.
- The pump will automatically stop running while the battery is discharged to its lower limit voltage, and the red LED illuminates at the meantime.
When the battery is reaching to its starting voltage, the LED will flash RED-GREEN twice every 10 seconds for an hour.
Then the pump will automatically operate and the LED illuminates GREEN again.
- Turn the timer switch to the position "ON", the pump works 10 minutes every hour.
It can save the battery energy in this operating mode, especially for winter or cloudy day use.
If you want to have long operating time in the evening, then turn the switch to "OFF" position during the day and turn it "ON" whenever you need.
We have two ponds one feeds the other from a stream at the top, the drain is faster than the flow of water going in so the bottom pond always becomes filled up to overflowing... there is no chance of having mains there as it is a field about 100 meters away from our house, so we opted for this solar powered pump, connected some tubing to it (we narrowed down the tubing with a connector so it went further up the hill on first attempt garden hose size was too wide for the distance we needed 5 meters so converted it down to 10 mm with a widget) : result is brilliant, it doesn't work 24/7 in fact in winter we don't get that much usage from it to be honest although it kicks in to life from time to time but we kind of expected that, but during the whole summer it chugged away nicely for hours on end and did a grand job, we spoke to nath & he sorted everything for us worth noting that he is very knowledgeable and helpful thank you Nath its a great - does a really good job
