How to assemble the Gloucester Bird Bath by Smart Solar


The Gloucester Bird Bath by Smart Solar is one of our most popular solar powered water features. Set up takes less than five minutes and of course there are no power cables to trail down the garden, this fountain uses the suns natural power and a built in underwater solar panel.

Here is how to install the Gloucester Water Feature...

After carefully removing the fountain from the packaging the first stage is to connect the main trunk of the fountain into the base using a clever slot and twist system. Simply line up the slots and gently twist until the section locks into place. It will only let you twist it one way so take care not to force it.

Repeat this process for top section of the fountain, again taking care not to over tighten.


Next remove the solar panel, pump and fountain heads from the box. Attatch the small tube of black plastic to the base of the solar panel and then slot the small solar powered pump onto this. Connect the pump to the solar panel and this is now ready to place into the top of the fountain.


The fountain does come with an option fountain head which can be slotted onto the top of the solar panel, this creates a sprinkling water effect rather than bubbling and can be easily removed.

And thats it! Your new solar powered water feature is complete and can be filled with water and placed into your garden.


A few useful tips...

During warmer days the water will soon evaporate so keep the fountain topped up. By using a watering can you can simply pour water back into the top of the fountain.

By placing an additive into the water (which is harmless to birds and animals) this will prevent the fountain from building up algae and general grime. We highly recommend Fountain Fresh which is also produced by Smart Solar.

When the winter falls you need to drain the water from the fountain and either cover with a winter protection cover or ideally just pop the fountain indoors. This will remove the chance of any damage as the temperature drops and means when the spring comes again you can enjoy the beauty of your fountain again.
