I originally ordered the tan version of this item that is now discontinued because a reviewer stated the white looked too fake. Wrong. The tan one leaked and was so so in looks. However the white one had an aged patina that make it look very authentic. Plus I originally wanted the white because it would fit in better with my back patio décor.
It seems every one of these is made slightly different and probably not by the same person or crew. After the 1st one leaked I took no chances with the 2nd white one and added some clear silicone caulk to the back where any possible water leakage could occur. I did the same with the front inside bottom basin. Now I will have years of worry free usage. I suggest anyone who buys any water feature from any maker to do the same.
I wish the item had a drain hole in the bottom basin & top tier, but they probably figured that could create potential leaks. But by carefully removing the fountain and tipping it upside down its drained easily. It is somewhat heavy but easy for the short time it takes to tip & drain it.
This model also has a beautiful light which adds elegance in the evening. I read where another poster said to put the pump in a nylon sock to prevent debris & dead bugs from getting into the pump & lines, that is also a great idea.
Whenever I fill the fountain I put about a 1/2 tsp. of bleach in it. Others use more exotic solutions but this suffices just fine to lengthen the waters life before it inevitable starts to cloud telling you its time to change it, which is normal being a closed water design.
Overstock customer service was exemplary when I needed to return the 1st tan fountain of same design. OS also had the best price. I would of given an excellent rating for quality had the 1st fountain not leaked causing me to reach for my caulk gun. Otherwise all other ratings are excellent.
I would order this particular item again and recommend it as well.
I read the other review and wasn't sure what to expect. I have another fountain similar to this one and I thought the price was good for the size of it and because it had a light. My fountain arrived perfectly packaged (with no dirt) and I was able to put it together (hook up the hose and screw on the bottom decorative piece) in minutes. This is a heavy fountain but it does look like plastic (others have a coating on them to make them look aged) but this one needs some type of finish. I sprayed it with a light color faux stone paint and it looks much better - you just have to be careful not to spray in the bowls where the water touches or the paint will come off and could clog the fountain - mine is fine. The water comes out of 3 areas on the top bowl into the bottom bowl which has a splash screen. I do wish the light had a switch so that it is not 'ON' the whole time the fountain is running as it will burn out quickly. Overall, I'm happy with it.
This product has very cheap looks and poor quality. Workmanship is not good. Even the package which we received was full of dirt . Looks like it was packed somewhere in the middle of dust storm. Color is more yellowish than what I expected based on the picture.
And Most Imp - This is an outdoor fountain - it is NOT an Indoor fountaim as mentioned somewhere in the description of the item.
I have bought lots of items from Overstock. This was really a very bad experience.
