Solar Power for Fountain

Remember this beautiful fountain we added to the pondscape last year. My wife didn't like having to turn it on when she was enjoying lunch by the pond. She asked me get a solar powered pump so it would work automatically when the sun was shining. I found a pump with solar panel at that fit the bill. I installed it last week and it works great in full sun. What is neat is you can move the solar panel in and out of the sun and watch the fountain go from dead stop to a good flow of water on the fountain. It works just the way my wife wanted it to.
