The koi sink is better than I had hoped. In fact, after it was installed, the rest of the bath looked shabby by comparison and had to be repainted to give it the right setting. The bowl has a beautiful coloration, with the water looking just as a shaded pond might appear. Small surprising details, like the bug, just by the drain, which the koi are coyly circling, are delightful. A real value for the money. It needed a plumber to really install correctly, as I am no handyperson, but he didn't seem to have major trouble. Nicely packed. Great value for money and a pleasure to look at each morning.
