i thought this was all slate, however though the top piece is the bottom that holds the water looks like plastic or might break easily. after a few days the coloring on the bottom piece has started to come off. In addition there is no way to turn the lights off during the day.
I love this fountain! t looks beautiful in my living room. The only problem I had was that it arrived with a few broken pieces. I was able to glue the pieces back rather than return the fountain. It was a little difficult to get the pump attached but once we got it working the fountain looks very elegant.
I love this fountain. I bought it for in my landscape just off my deck. It is perfect because of it's height and that you have a great view when sitting on the deck or from the ground in the backyard. It looks great and the sound of the flowing water is very relaxing. I didn't find the pump sound to be overwhelming like several other reviewers noted. Now for the assembly...while the assembly was not hard to follow, it was a challenge to connect the hose to the pump. I finally found that having a 2nd person really helped. I laid the tower and base down before connecting them together, then had the 2nd person raise the tower as I twisted the pump around the tower support in the base. Good luck and enjoy. By the way, I originally purchased this fountain from another website and it arrived broken in several places even though there was no damage to the box. I was able to return it, and started to look for a different fountain when I came across this same unit for $200 less expensive.

I am really enjoying this fountain! The body of the fountain is excellent and it works beautifully, making a sound like a little bubbling stream. I can't hear the pump noise at all. If it were not for the screws being two different lengths and the screw holes being drilled slightly off, plus the short length of pump tubing, I'd give it 5 stars.

We had seen this exact same fountain in a hardware store. Was priced much higher than this one. Shipped super fast and was package very well. We purchased for a Wedding Present for brother and sister-in-law. They absolutely loved it. In the summer they have sitting outside on the deck. In the winter they bring it into their house. A little noisey, but I think after awhile you would get used to it and not notice it so much. Very beautiful piece.

- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The base of this fountain is more green than the picture.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The fountain is heavy and sturdy, with lots of variation in color. Makes lots of noise with the water, and the lights really light up the fountain.
