Nice appearance; fairly loud sound from water splashing. Design flaws: 1. Bottom basin is 2" too short from front to back; water splashes out constantly, even when basin is full. 2. 3rd basin is 1" too short from front to back; water splashes out even when basin is full. 3. I live in MN; we have Cottonwood trees which bloom profusely each Spring. Filters glued to sluice openings on 2nd and 3rd basins are useless, Cottonwood seeds become entangled in the filters, and root within 24 hours, plus there are too many of the seeds to be able to keep the filters clear. (I removed them and replaced with screening.) 4. Screens should be designed for all basin openings to catch seeds, etc. from the air. ( I used clear Velcro and bronze-colored netting to make my own.) These screen sets could then be sold at additional cost, and would make the fountain much more user friendly 5 Plastic hose connecting pump to upper basin is too short; pump cannot attach itself to bottom of fountain via suction cups and therefore water level must be very carefully monitored. 6. Lights in fountain were a disappointment. My fountain is placed on a small balcony, and I sit not three feet away. The lights in basins two, three and four are visible and much too bright at that distance, so I have not used them at all. 7. It was my intention to keep the fountain running 24/7, however the water level is too sensitive for this, especially since the pump is not anchored to the base. I only have it running when I am on or close to the balcony. I do not remember seeing anything in the advertisement of this fountain that indicated it should be used in a space "x" size or larger. Such a recommendation would have been informative in the decision-making process. Finally, I do appreciate that the fountain fits in a corner. That was my number one criteria in purchasing it for use in a small space. I will keep it for a year or two, then look for something more suitable for my needs.
Picture is accurate. His face is sweet and calmly blissful and lovely to look at. He is about 11 1/2 inches in height, 9 1/4 inches wide, and 6 inches deep and heavy! I bought him for the garden, but I appreciate his company in my room.
