This fountain is really nice, but it is difficult to remove the top part to get to the pump. So far I haven't been able to adjust it to get the water to bubble at the top & come out of the lions' mouths at the same time, but I'm working on it. The other issue is that the basin only holds a few days worth of water, so it must be filled fairly often, and it's in the middle of my rose garden, so it's not very convenient.
Despite those two points, it really is lovely to look at and I would purchase it all over again!
The fountain is big and not to expensive.The color was hideous.So we painted it and turned out good. then we put it together, water was coming out where it was suppose to but also was leaking from the lower part of the base. Within 12 hrs I had to fill it again so water could come out the top. We tryed many times trying to figure out what was wrong but the pump is inside and hard to get to. So we just deal with it the way it is . The lions still have water coming out but i dont worry about it coming out of the top anymore. I never returned it because I had painted it first before i tried it.
This was a terrible purchase! Leaked all over the yard from day one. Would not hold water at all! My husband and his engineer friend worked on the hoses all day on a Saturday and still could not fix it. Ended up sending it back. Worst purchase ever from Amazon!
This fountain was a gamble for us as the shape is not traditional. My husband gave it to me for Mother's Day. It's beautiful and tall when set up. The water seldom splashes except when over filled. The birds are mad about it. The only fountain we have that doesn't frighten them away. Even small birds sit peacefully at the side and drink while it's running. The Blue Jays and Mocking birds seem to get a kick out of sitting on top and getting a "bottom" wash that makes us laugh. It's graceful and slim enough to look great in a small garden or apartment patio, yet equally at home in a larger space. BEST OF ALL, CUSTOMER SERVICE. We had a problem at the beginning and got instant help, that fixed the problem. THANK YOU! You can't imagine how much pleasure this gives us (and the birds) every day. PS. I also bought, on Amazon, an outdoor plug that allows us to turn the fountain off and on by remote control, hurray for Amazon, as always, it was reasonably (even cheaply) priced and works great.
