This is a beautiful fountain and serves the purpose of our zen room . . . We keep the room dim so the fountain has a nice presence . . if the lights were bright, it would not look as nice . . . overall for where and what we are using it for we are happy.
This is a really nice fountain, very attractive and makes a nice sound. I have it inside the house, and was concerned about water splatter. It does splatter out about a foot, but I have it on tile and in several hours it only splatters out an amount that's easy to wipe up. The rustic look really blends nicely in my decor. One thing, it did arrive in a damaged box with one of the drip-shelves broken off. It is heavy, would be really hard to repack and send back plus we wanted it working for an event. I was able to reattach the drip shelf with Tough as Nails and keep the damaged fountain, and you cannot tell it was ever broken.
Very easy to put together, quick & fun. All the pieces came with it. The copper bowl is light and thin, but it gives a metallic sound when thunked and it is not plastic.
I have it set on a strawberry planter outside on a deck, to raise it up higher. The light is fairly bright but not obnoxious, because the bulb sits slightly below the top slate piece. The light is only white, which I am glad for because I have several color changing ones in my yard and garish colors would ruin the "zen" nature of this piece. Both slate disks have a nice greenish hue to them. The little fountain of water that splashes up is the only part affected by the light.
I have the fountain set on medium, and the water from the fountain pump shoots up a good couple inches. It splashes a little but not bad. When the weather turns cold we will bring it indoors, and hoping with the setting on "low" the water won't splash outside the bowl. The only thing I wish is that the control for the pump were not on the very bottom of the apparatus. You need to take the fountain apart to get to the control to change the setting. I had a box full of lovely polished agates & other large colorful stones gifted to me by my grandfather when I was little. I am using them in the fountain. The included stones were ok, smooth pale yellow or tan stones. My gorgeous agates dress up the fountain. It is beautiful and very peaceful sounding - even just on medium it makes a substantial water sound. I don't hear the pump at all. I was able to ramp up the babbling brook sound a bit by changing the placement & size of stones that sit right underneath the top fountain of water.
In the daytime the light is still on but not noticeable.
One suggestion - don't be so impatient to see the fountain in action that you neglect to give the bowl, slate pieces & any rocks you use a good wash prior to setting up the fountain. I didn't do this & had a lot of visible dust circulating in the fountain after starting it. I just flushed it out with enough water to clear the water, it looks fine now.
The best way to describe this waterfall is soothing. After a long day l, it's very relaxing. I also enjoy this purchase because it helps me to sleep at night. This is very important because of my sleep apnea and insomnia. I would recommend this elephant waterfall to anyone!
I've been looking all over for a new fountain. My biggest problem is finding one that you can hear the water and not the motor on the fountain. This is a rare one of those. It is quiet and only water noise. The LED lights looked a bit like a disco ball when I first put it together, but I put the lights farther away from the ball and now it is a nice muted color and flow. I use it in my treatment room and my patients find it very soothing. I'm glad I took a chance on it, and I will probably order another one as a backup. I tried one of the batteries ones also, and they are awful.
This fountain is absolutely beautiful. Sleek and modern, it takes any room up a notch. The sound of the water falling is relaxing and soothing. The LED light makes it amazing to just lay on the couch and stare at in the dark. Yes, it's that cool. It is a bit high maintenance though.
The water evaporates VERY quickly. I've already had to fill it twice (besides the initial filling) and it's been up for a week. I do keep it running all the time, and it is July in California, but my house is air conditioned, so it's definitely faster than expected. I suppose you could turn it off when not in the room, but I think it would be an equally big pain because you have to "spread" the water flow across the mirror to get it to fall uniformly across the distance. I think I hung mine ever so slightly crooked, because water still fell slightly more aggressively down one side than the other. Originally, it would always dry out on the left side, so I covered some of the holes in the water bar distributor thingy with some duct tape. Now it works much better. It comes with a cool little shelf type insert that rests over the water reservoir which you can fill with cool little somethings that makes it even cooler than the picture. I used wine corks cause I love wine. And a couple candles. They reflect in the mirror and it looks crazy cool. Definitely a conversation piece.
The fountain has the most relaxing sound of the water running. The light shines on the water in the dark - lovely. Easy to put together and to clean. It does use more water than I expected. I had an electrician to wire it through the wall so no outlet or cord showed.
Lovely fountain. I had to hire a handy man to install the fountain for me, thus the four stars, but it was easy for him to do himself. I had it mounted on a protected outdoor patio wall above an antique oval Asian footed concrete "fish" container with tall plants in it and it blends perfectly, hiding the cord to the electrical outlet. Very happy so far, it's been working perfectly. The sound is mellow and the appearance is lovely.
This fountain is as beautiful as I hoped it would be...better than a picture can show. The only issue I have is the strength of the flow of water through the pump, it would be nice if it was a bit stronger, since the water doesn't flow out evenly. I wonder if the a stronger pressure would make a difference. Love the glass, love the light, love the stones, love the brass bottom basin. Overall a very nice product.
I'm really into feng shui and have been through a few fountains already. I came across this one and wasn't too sure about this one because I hadn't actually seen it in person. I had a bigger fountain that was big and tall, but it would always get clogged and dirty - very hard to clean, and eventually stopped working all together. Then I bought one that looked easier to clean and didn't seem like it would break down too easily, but it did, within 2-months. I paid roughly around $300 for each fountain. Plus these two fountains made very loud water noises; which annoyed my husband. This one I found on Overstock is perfect! At first, I thought it was too small, but it actually looks perfect underneath a nice table. It gives a very nice ambience and flow to our foyer without making loud splashing noises that some of our other fountains made. It is exactly as pictured and easy to clean. Doesn't look cheap. I'm very happy with this purchase.
This gave our office the exact feel we were looking for. Watch out for the height of the outlet you place behind it. We ended up needing to move ours up and rewire. to have the fountain at the right level on the wall. We run it all day, everyday. Maintenance seems fairly simple so far.
It is really nice and was a perfect size for the area I placed it. I love the sound of the water it is extremely relaxing and calming. I did have to place with the set up to keep the light from shining so bright into your eyes and I added extra rocks.
It was a challenge to put together. The pump kept falling apart. It is beautiful but I don't know if I would order again. The stone has a crack in the corner, you have to really watch the water it evaporates fast.
The fountain was much smaller than I realized and doesn't make any sound of water falling. The bowl is made of plastic or resin, so very lightweight. However, it is cute and looks fine on the coffetable in my sunroom.
I was extremely disappointed when I opened the box to find the top tier shatter. I contacted Overstock and the vendor expedite shipped me a replacement that arrived the next business day.
I could not be more delighted. (I added the larger stones)
This was easy to assemble and works well. The blue LED helps to illuminate the water as it trickles down. It doesn't make water noises but you can't hear the pump either. I added more rocks to fully cover the base, otherwise there's just a few scattered around with what was included. It's very petite, but I have it on a side table on my balcony so it works just fine there.
