Cheap Solar Powered Water Pump REVIEW!

I purchased this solar water pump on ebay for $13 – $14 about four weeks ago. I’ve had it running in my small pond for three weeks. So far this is working great for me, as I’m only using it to pump water up to my aquaponics garden bed and does also help aerate my fish pond. It works at full power only when there is direct sun exposure, but I’ve found mine working in cloudy conditions, as long as the sun is somewhat directly above behind the clouds.

Hope this was a bit helpful to those who were thinking of buying a cheap solar powered pump for your water fountain or pond.

Is it adjustable with a dial or is it only by covering or revealing the solar panel? Thanks!
