Floating SolarGlo Light Instructions

The floating SolarGlo light is a decorative solar light system for your garden pond.

The SolarGlo floating light is waterproof, and is intended to operate in direct sunlight. Always place the lamp in a position where the solar panel is exposed to maximum sunlight, as this will greatly enhance its performance.

The SolarGlo floating light uses two 1.2V "AAA" re-chargable 300mAh batteries. The floating solar powered light must be in full sunlight for 2 days before it's first use. It does not have to be in the pond during these 2 days.

To maintain the battery power, place the light in direct sunlight for 2 days once every 3 months.

How does the SolarGlo light work?

The solar panel converts sunlight into electricity and recharges the battery during the day. At night, the lamp turns on to automatically stored electricity.

The length of time the lamp shines is governed by the number of hours that the solar panel is exposed to direct sunlight and is therefore subject to geographical location, weather conditions and the number of daylight hours.

This means that lighting time will be reduced during the winter.

Similarly, a cloudy or overcast day may not be sufficient to fully recharge the battery. However, it will recharge itself on the next sunny day and resume normal operation.

Normal Operation

Turn the power switch to the "AUTO" position. This will ensure the floating solar lamp turns itself on automatically during the night and off during the day.

Place the lamp on the surface of your pond or pool. Locate the area in which your light will receive the most sunlight. You can then anchor the light to this area by using the attachment at the base of the unit.

When doing this, make sure that the lamp floats naturally on the water. If the light is being pulled too far into the water, the solar panel will not sufficiently charge the battery.

Green Tip:

Prevent Runoff by using plants that cover the entire ground surface. Runoff can carry harmful chemicals, pesticides and excessive amounts of phosphorus and nitrogen into waterways.

Location

Always place the Floating Solar Powered Light in direct sunlight. Try to avoid places where trees or buildings might cast a shadow on the solar panel.

Do not place the lamp underwater, as this will reduce the capability of the battery to charge fully.

Care of the Battery

To avoid damage to the solar lamp, the power switch must be in the "OFF" position when replacing the battery.

Cleaning

It is important to keep the solar panel free from dirt and debris, otherwise the battery will not charge fully.

Clean the top surface of the unit regularly with a soft cloth dampened in water. Do not use solvents.

Take extreme care not to scratch the clear cover.

In winter, clear snow off the top of the unit so that the battery can recharge.
