Very variable! It could be as much as 2.5 hours in very sunny conditions in the summer or as little as a few seconds in the rain in mid-winter. The run-time will also vary dependent on the setting of the knob on the unit. Each position will change the time by about 20%.
The pump will work in a greenhouse, but will pump slightly less water due to there being less light than outside.
The first time you turn it on – the battery may be fully charged or flat. If fully charged, the pump will run for hours – once it has stopped, it will begin to operate normally.
If the battery is flat, position the unit in the sun (you can still do all the connections), turn the knob to 5 and leave it for up to 24 hours. Thereafter it will operate normally. DO NOT charge the batteries in a charger.
