Consistency Of Water Flow
The SE 450 is a powerful little Solar Water Pump and is renowned for its consistent operation, it will operate consistently even in relatively cloudy conditions in summer, slightly more powerful than the SE 360.
Variable Flow Water Pump
The variable flow pump is an added bonus and allows you size the fountain head to the exact size you require, giving you total control over your solar water feature
Battery Backup as Standard
The battery backup also gives you the option of turning the power down or off and capturing that energy, then using it specifically when you need it, for example if you wanted the fountain to run during a party in the evening, then you can turn it off save the power and turn it on at night, and amaze all your friends with an incredible focal point in the evening
This unit is designed for people with small/medium ponds who need a reliable solar water fountain with constant flow
Customers with an Existing water feature
For customers who want to use the se 450 with an existing water feature, by connecting the pump to a tube please call 0845 094 8821 to check the details of your existing feature
Water Fountain After Sundown
If you turn the pump power down, so that the se 450 does not spray so high, then the additional energy is stored and used later when the sun goes down, this way you can run the se 450 til 1am in the morning on sunny days
TIP : when running at night for parties or just for the effect please see the fairy lights as these products when placed together make a really amazing magical spot in the garden.
During winter it is important not to let your battery go flat when storing the fountain

- Connect the "INPUT" cable of the battery back-up to the solar module, and tighten the screw for protection. Screw the ground spike tight at the back side of the solar module and insert the solar module at a sunny place, adjust the angle let the solar module facing SOUTH toward mid day sun.
- Insert the pump plug to the "OUTPUT" socket of the battery backer-up, and also tighten the screw.
- For a floating fountain (deep water), just assemble the nozzle and foam disk to the pump according to the right photo, the nozzles can produce 4 different jet shapes.
- Make sure to place the pump fully underwater when the pump operates.
- Turn the switch to the position "ON". The bicolor LED illuminates GREEN. 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 LED illuminates RED in the meantime.
When the battery is recharged to its starting voltage, the LED will flash RED-GREEN twice every 10 seconds, and it will last 30 minutes. Then the pump will automatically operate and the LED illuminates GREEN again.
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.
SO SO pleased with this.
Sent the last piece of pastic imported rubbish back to amazon...
This is a world apart!
1) The solar panel is very very efficient... even on a cloudy day it can run the unit
2) Clever software means the device makes use of the solar before the battery....
3) Nice and sunny this past 3 weeks..and I reckon we get something like 12 hours run
4) the WD40 hint makes the pump run like a dream
5) cleans up well...and plenty of hidden cable.
Cant fault the unit...nor Powerbee for quick response and an answer to my s/w question!!

Sunspray SE 450 Solar Water Pump with battery backup : great little shower!
I bought the sunspray SE 450 and had a problem with the pump on the day I set it up. However the company were available for advice on the phone immediately and after talking through the problem and trying a couple of tests on their instructions they sent a replacement pump free which arrived two days later and has been great for over a month and shows no sign any problem.They said that they had not previously had problems with the pumps, so I think it is a rare occurence. It is a small fountain, about 30cm high, but that was what I wanted. The long wires allow me to hide the panel and backup charger out of the way which I prefer. So a helpful and efficient company and a good product for me.
Sunspray SE 450 Solar Water Pump with battery backup : Solar Fountain
This is a lovely little fountain! A doddle to set up, surprisingly powerful, and keeps going long after the sun has disappeared. I was very pleased with it. Totally recommend.
Sunspray SE 450 Solar Water Pump with battery backup : Just what we wanted!
We had been looking for a solar fountain for our new garden pond for some time. This really fits the bill!
Arrived well within timescale. Easy to follow instructions and easily maintained.
Love being able to change the spray nozzle.
Well worth the money!
great fountain, no running costs
I used a cheap Chinese import last year which hardly ever worked and was very disappointing, so I felt I was pushing the boat out to spend more on this one, having already seen how good the Powerbee Solar Fairy lights were. I am very pleased I did as the fountain is great! Big spray (i had to use the smallest setting so the spray wasn't all over the side of the pond - that's how powerful it is), floats on the surface and works well even in cloud or at night when you use the backup battery. Really easy to install. The fish like it too!
You make me happy when skies are grey!
I've been doing a lot of work on the garden this year to get it just right and wanted a water feature but no wiring and noisy pumps running. Saw this on here and thought I'd give it a go and I'm glad I did! This is a solar powered pump so no wiring to be done! It's a submersible pump that can be adjusted to give several fountain/spray effects by changing the fountain heads which are supplied and changing the flow rate via a dial on the side of the pump which is approx 90 litres per hour max. The pump+spout is approx 8 inches high. From the top of the spout you can get a water height of about 13 inches which is good when you see how small the pump is! Must be a good pump! The pump is powered via a good sized solar panel which sits atop a 13 inch ground spike on a 360 degree moveable ball and socket joint. The panel could easily be fence mounted by pinning it to the fence or wall if need be. This panel is connected to a back up battery unit with a simple on/off button, that's it! A second battery unit is supplied too which is great so you could alternate batteries having a fully charged one ready to go when the current one runs low on power! The pump connects to the battery unit via over 16 feet of cable enabling you to situate the panel wherever you want.
So in use. . . .I put the pump together in 5 mins flat, dead easy! I let the battery initially charge for three days myself just to make sure it had a full charge for it's first use but I believe two would be sufficient. I put the pump into a tub of about 50 litres of water. The pump was attached to the bottom by four suction cups that are already on the bottom of the pump, all good. Turned the pump on and hey presto! It ran like a dream in my opinion. I tried the different fountain effects out and flow rates and was very happy with it all. The pump and all connections, solar panel, battery back up units are all very well made, the pump runs silently too. After some hours of use I took the pump out and took the bottom cover off as you would to clean it or check for blockages to check the filter and impellar (the rotor inside the pump housing) and all was spot on. So it's easy enough to clean too! As the battery unit stores charge it does work under cloudy conditions too.
So I can see no problem at all. The whole system is well built and runs great and is easy to maintain, you also get a second battery. Brilliant stuff indeed. So if you would like the sound of running or trickling water, a pebble pond or a little water feature which is simple to install I would highly recommend this pumping system.

I love this fountain, it's a good size and height for my medium pond and you can hear the water trickling away - very relaxing. Great quality.

Had been looking for a pond feature for ages.(2 small kids and never enough time!)
Decided to look on line and found a great little company called Powerbee.
We chose the Sunspray SE 450 and placed the order. we where pleasantly surprised when the very neatly wrapped package arrived the very next day.
Clear instructions made assembling and fitting it a doddle(even for me!).
Works just as well as a mains pump but with no running costs!
All in all I am very happy with it and would recommend this product to anyone.
