Rain Barrel Solar Pump

Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

Rain barrels are a wonderful investment and go a long way to helping the environment, home owners, and communities. If you have a rain barrel, you can make it even more effective by adding a Rain Wizard rain barrel pump. This specially designed pump works by siphoning water through a long hose that enters the barrel through the top. It then sends the water out through the pump and into your hose. This works well because it can work on barrels with or without spigots. If your rain barrel already has a spigot, this pump won't tie up the spigot, leaving it free for use with buckets and watering cans. The best part about the pump is that it is completely self contained. There is no hazard of dangerous electrical shock or need to plug the pump into an outdoor outlet. The solar pump can provide all the power to the enclosed Lithium-Ion battery which can pump 100 gallons of water at 13 PSI on a single 8 hour charge (direct sunlight). Single button operation turns the pump on and off and can be used to test the battery. The pump can even run dry without incurring damage.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can the pump be run on just the solar panel without using the battery, or with a dead battery?

Asked by: Ken
I think not. I bought this pump several years ago. It contains a lithium battery that is recharged by the freestanding solar unit. The pump worked fine for a while, but now the battery won't charge, and the pump won't operate even though the solar unit remains attached and in direct sunlight.

Rain Barrel Solar Pump is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from It doesn't work I set this up a week ago. The battery has yet to charge. Skies are clear, nearly summer solstice, it says that it will charge in eight hours. After a week, the battery won't hold a charge. Completely useless.
