        Check whether the product or individual parts are damaged. If this is the case, do not use the product. Contact the manufacturer via the service address indicated on the warranty card.
  • Basic cleaning
    • Remove the packaging material and all plastic wrappings.
    • Clean all parts of the product before first use as described in the chapter “Cleaning”.

Using the product

  • Insert the base stand 4 , upper stand 2 , lower stand 3 and stand support 1 onto each other (see step 1 in Fig. B).
  • Place the jug 5 , small bowls 6 and large bowl 7 on the assembled stand (see step 2 in Fig. B).
  • Attach the bung 8 onto the upper end of the hose 10 and then insert the bung and hose into the opening at the bottom of the jug (see step 1 in Fig. C).
  • Attach the lower end of the hose to the water outlet 11 of the pump 12 (see step 2 in Fig. C).
  • Place the pump at the bottom of the large bowl and secure the pump with its suction feet.
  • Attach the hose to the stand with the clips 9 . Close the clips to secure the fixing (see Fig. D).
  • Fill the small bowls and large bowl with clean water. The water in the large bowl must cover the pump.
  • Insert the ground stake 17 onto the pole 16 and the pole onto the bottom of the solar panel 15 (see step 1 in Fig. E).
  • Insert the solar panel into the ground as far as the ground stake allows. If necessary, use a shovel to loosen hard ground before inserting the solar panel. Do not use any force (e.g. hammer blows) to insert the solar panel as this will cause damage. See chapter “Optimal use of the solar panel” for more details.
  • Insert the power plug 14 into the power connector 13 (see step 2 in Fig. E). Slightly twist the power plug and power connector during insertion to ensure a water-tight connection (see Fig. F).

The pump starts working as soon as it receives sufficient solar power.
Water must be regularly topped up in the bowls during use.

  • Optimal use of the solar panel
    • Position the product in such a way that the solar panel 15 can absorb maximum sunlight. A shady position will affect its operating capacity (see Fig. G).

      The product is designed primarily to operate in summer months but will also work in spring and autumn provided that there is good sunshine. Performance is directly related to the amount and strength of sunlight received (see Fig. H).


Some problems may be caused by minor faults that you can fix yourself. To do so, follow the instructions in the following table. If it is still not possible to resolve the problem, contact customer service. Do not repair the product yourself.
