I put this together in 5 minutes, so it was very straightforward. The fountain is made with very strurdy resins and fiberglass that will allow it to hold up in Texas heat, but I still may winter it over in the garage.
Water flow is perfect. Level it on a sturdy base for best results. The sounds are do tranquil and loud enough to hear some distance away that it's quite enjoyable.
The cord is a little short but where I'm placing it I need an extension anyway.
This is awesome for the price! Concrete look-alikes are easily $750+. Great buy!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color is slightly more mossy green in person but still beautiful.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fountain is well constructed and so easy to put together.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate description but color in the photo was a little deceiving.
This went together in minutes without tools. It was great that I didn't have to lift anything heavy to put it in place. It looks terrific. I have the pump on low speed, and it sounds great with little splashing. I read the other reviews that indicated that at least two people didn't like the color. I thought it was okay, but I painted it anyway to fit in to my yard scheme better.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The fountain does have a little green tinge that doesn't really come through in the picture.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent.

I"ve had this fountain for over a month now. I can't say anything about the durability of the fiberglass that constructs it, but I can see there are 2 things that I don't like:
1. The (3) bowls and (3) bases come in seperated sections and lock together to form a 3-tier fountain. This assembly can easily be done in 10 minutes. but the bowls have to be really leveled in order for water to flow out evenly aronnd their rims. And this is where the problem is. After I put all the pieces together, each bowls are in different levels! So never mind preparing a leveled ground for the fountain to sit on, since the fountain will not level anyway! So I had to use wood shims to adjust each bowl/base, and it's okay for now.
2. I tried to clean the (inside) bowl using garden hose to splash dirty stuffs away, and the color stain came off! So now it has patches of light color (i.e. unstained fiberglass) on the interior surface. I think I'll wait until most of the stain come off then I'll re-coat the whole thing with some exterior paint.
If I had known these issues I would not buy this fountain.
I bought this fountain to replace one that was damaged by this awful freezing weather.I wanted a fiberglass fountain because I believe that it holds up better in freezing conditions and is not too hard to handle...I like the look of this fountain which matches the base stone foundation that I already had from my previous fountain. The water splashes with lots of force from each basin and makes a wonderful sound . It looks lovely in front of my stone and brick home and certainly calls attention to itself.... I'm very pleased with this purchase as well as with everyone of my many other purchases from Overstock..
Although it seems to be made from quality materials and is sturdy, it was poorly manufactured. The components do not fit well and it ends up looking crooked when assembled. Even the replacement had similar problems. I am not sure if there is effective quality control/assurance before it leaves the manufacturing facility. The cover to pump enclosure seemed to be of a different color and did not match. The mold of one of the components had collapsed on one side but was still overlooked and finished over. The base was also not molded well and it had a 1/2 inch lip on one side. If these defects were absent it would have made for a fine product. Alas, I am really not looking forward to trying my luck the third time.
I really love this fountain. Substantial in appearance, and the sounds of the water spilling over the tiers is relaxing to me. We put this on a patio. I wouldn't recommend it being anywhere that some splashing out of the fountain would be a problem, becauae their is a bit of water on the ground when we run it. We live on a corner and the water sort of muffles traffic noise. I have priced fountains elsewhere, this is a deal.

how many gallons? looking for something that I don't have to fill constantly due to evaporationcjmcjmcjm on Dec 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi cjmcjmcjm, we were able to verify this information with our support team. To fill up the fountain would roughly be 3-5 gallons. Fill the big plate with enough water to assure the pump is always fully submerged and working properly. Thanks for shopping with us.
