Looking for a Reliable Solar Fountain/Pond Pump

I am trying to find a decent solar pump that I can use in a water feature that is really hard to run electric to. It is a rather large pot, about 3' tall, 3' wide, that we have sitting on an Atlantic Fountain basin. I want the water to bubble over the top, spill down the sides, then recirculate. We have it actually all set up, and ran an extension cord to make sure it works, which is does. But, in actually surveying our yard, and where this pot fountain sits, it would mean having to tunnel under two very nice (and expensive) flagstone walkways. We're afraid of the soil eventually washing away under the walkways where we'd have to tunnel under, thus undermining the walkways and eventually causing then to crack. Not an appealing prospect. So, the alternative is a good quality solar pump that can pump up at least 4'. Can anyone recommend a reputable company AND a pump that is decent and will last? Thanks!

I am interested in this as well. We have a small basal column and I refuse to dig up the pathway to run electricity to it. I'd love to find a powerful enough solar pump under $100, but I've looked everywhere.

Somebody in my water garden club put together a solar panel and water pump bought on Amazon for about $150. They've been real happy with it. I keep forgetting to get the details from him.
