We really like the look of the fountain and it fits perfectly in the niche in the wall we built for it. Looks great now, after we spent more money on it to replace the cheap water control valve that leaked, and the hose that was too short. Also the rests that the top sits on in the base were not level so that had to be adjusted, plus the entire fountain sit forward so we had to raise the front of it so it would look staright. Also the front sides of it have mesh showing that wasn't properly finished so we have to get some sanding grout to fix that. The fountain looks and works great now.....It works for us because it's in a niche in the wall, but if it was on the floor as shown it would have been sent back!

The slate and copper on this fountain is absolutely gorgeous. I have a very small home with only 4 rooms and placed this fountain at the end of the hall that runs down the center between the rooms. I can see it from everywhere and the sound is so pretty. It's noticed by everyone who enters. I'm so happy I purchased it.
Delighted with this product! Easy to install, very precise instructions. Have it on concrete devider between foyer & dining room. For those of you that found splashing to be a concern, just move the rocks around & it will stop. I am also using distilled H2O so the white will not show as bad as some people that use regular tap H2O. Remember to use 1 gallon & 1/3 when filling. I live in AZ. where evaporation is constant. The sound is very relaxing, & colors true. I can't be more pleased with Overstock & this product!
We received the fountain in good time. However when we examined it, it appears that someone has sloppily painted all the grout lines with blue/gray paint. And I mean it looks like maybe a 4-year-old's painting effort. There is also pretty good sized chip on the base, and some scratches. I took pictures, and called customer service. They have been wonderful and are shipping replacements. We'll let you know how those turn out. Would not recommend yet...
I love this fountain. The water sound is so relaxing and it is very pretty to look at. My cats won't leave the area around the fountain now! They love it too. The only "splash" I had was when I first turned it on and that was minimal. I do have to remember to add water as my dry climate in AZ evaporates water quickly. Would like to get another one for my bedroom.
