This fountain seems to be well constructed and was easy to assemble. I love the lights in the evening! It looks great on my lanai. The only downside is that the water runs a bit loudly. If you're looking for a mere trickle, this fountain might not be the best for you.
This fountain is a lot of fun because it's easy to decorate with plants and other things. It is, however, VERY loud. You can't hear the pump at all, but there is so much water falling far enough to make a lot of sound, so be aware when you plan placement. I took a couple of small flat boards, leaned them just so as to decrease the fall and the sound.
The fountain is lightweight, sturdy, and very easy to assemble.
Every landscape should have a water feature, and this fits the bill. I placed it on my entrance stoop. Have received compliments regarding the fountain, and I like not only the look, but the sound of the running water. It is loud enough that I can hear it from the living room when the storm door is open. The material does have a real stone look, but to be safe, I plan to store it inside during the winter. I would have given it a five instead of a four, but two of the three lights do not work. It came with extras, but I can't figure how to install them. But I don't run the fountain during the night anyway.
Ordered this item for new deck and pergola. It was well pkgd, and 2 pieces good. The only thing broken was 1 of the replacement bulbs that was furnished. It took almost no time to set up, and maybe 5 min. to fill. But the sound is like a waterfall, crisp, noisey, and beautiful all at the same time. It is everything and more that I hoped for.
I was sent tracking information and a date of delivery. However, after receiving this information, nothing came. It was being shipped from a location less than 2 hours away from my home. When I followed up online I was given an I don't know and will get back to you. When called in person the next day, received the same information, and that the item was out of stock and discontinued. I finally received a credit for the item but could not get a replacement. I am very unhappy with Overstock.com, their customer service is lousy and obviously so is their shipping.
Will not work with Overstock.com again.
I had shopped locally for an outdoor fountain and found this exact one...for $400! I turned my shopping to Overstock where the same one was half the price so I ordered. This is a beautiful fountain. There is really no assembly unless you count hooking up the pump and lights...btw these 2 plug in separately so the lights do not run all the time. The color is more of a brown, which was perfect for me. It holds quite a bit of water and the pump started up just fine. There is little to no splashing even on the highest pump setting. The fountain is louder than the pump but not overly loud as some reviews stated. I wanted it to be loud and it could be louder to me. The lights are a nice touch but I find that the lights really just draw bugs into the fountain so I rarely ever use them. This fountain is solid but not so much that it could not be lifted easily. Beautiful fountain...I am pleased!
The fountain was delivered as promised and intact with no missing or broken components. The assembly took five minutes.
Carried out to patio and plugged in lights and water pump after filling with water.Only recommendation would be to include in the instruction manual the quantity (~1 gallon) of water required to filled the reservoir and not just in the lower fountain as shown. Seems to work well and good feng-shui with the relaxing sound of water falls.
My husband is a fountain kind of guy. He loves the sound of water and the looks of a fountain in the garden. We've had many, many fountains through the years. He has struggled with the constant cleaning of the heavier cement-type fountains and finally gave in and bought this lightweight one. I originally thought the lighted look was 'cheesy' but we get so many complements on it in our little front courtyard that I've gotten used to it. It's especially pretty at night. My husband loves how easy it is to set up and keep clean. Anything to keep the hubs happy is fine with me!
This is a pretty and unique item. Beautiful for a small area. Adds great ambience and you can control the flow. It is near our patio in Las Vegas and adds just the right touch of serenity. An excellent purchase for a small water feature.
I have misplaced the transformers for the lights. What do I need to buy to replace these.tnalex on Aug 21, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This QuestionThere are no answers to this question yet, be the first to answer it.
How often do you need to change the water? Or do you empty the fountain after each use?laura443 on May 8, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Thank you for shopping with us enno2013. Customers have reported that splashing was not an issue and that it could be used both indoors and outdoors. A reviewer did report that they turned the pressure down to 85% but hear the soothing sound of the fountain and no mess. Have a tranquil day.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 7, 2013
Thank you for shopping with us darump. The pump holds approximately 1 1/2 gallons of water. You have to make sure that the pump is always submerged. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 7, 2013

If it is outdoors you cannot by strict code, but I bought an outdoor extension cord and I applied aquarium silicone sealant to the face of the plug and socket to make a water-tight seal. I think that will be safe.wizardchef on Aug 8, 2013
does the fountain have on and off switch or do you have to plug it in everytime you want to turn it onmagmags on Mar 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thanks for your question. This does have an on off switch. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 19, 2013
There is NO on off switch. I had a friend do an outlet to the house where he installed an on off switch.
I LOVE this fountain. I placed screen across the top of the basins so leaves and debri would not be able to get in. I also add my own rock around it to make it look more organic. So far I have had 3 years of enhjoyment from it. The lights wen out the first year and I have been unable to acquire replacements however.jillybean1 on May 6, 2013
No, there is no switch. I have to unplug it in order to turn it off.anyelina on May 7, 2013
Can you adjust the pump level so as to pump a little less water so it won't be as loud?memaxwell on Mar 17, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question. Other customers have reviewed that you can adjust the water pressure to deal with similar issues like noise and splash. Have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 19, 2013
Not really. If you want less flow you can probably buy a device that will crimp the plastic tubing, restricting the flow. You can find these a places that sell aquariums.wizardchef on Aug 8, 2013
