We like many aspects of this water spout /pump unit: its elegant and sophisticated look; its easy assembly; and its versatility. By simply placing the unit on top of a glazed pottery piece and filling it with some water, we were able to bring the look and sound of serenity to a corner of our patio. The only complaint we have with this unit is that there is no way to adjust the water flow; the water volume is loud, sounding like a sink faucet left on. We have only had the unit for a couple of weeks so we don't know how durable it is. We filled the pottery piece with filtered water to avoid clogging it over time.
