This cascading fountain works beautifully. It blends in with surroundings being brown. I have it set up next to a bird feeder cage set in my window which has reflective film on it . That way I can stand very close to the birds without them seeing me. Since installing the fountain the birds have increased coming to feeder. Not only birds but a family of squirrels also use it.If a little care is taken with fountain such as cleaning it regularly and using a little bleach and cleaning pump screen it should last a very long time. The fountain was delivered in good time and it all remained intact . Easy to set up. Very pleased with service and product
First, it is very small, and just fades into the outdoor background. They should show a picture of it in a garden, you'd see what I mean - it looks great in their picture, with a solid taupe background.
Second, it only works when there is bright sun, and then provides only a slow dribble of water.
Third, leaves and garden debri must be cleaned out regularly, because there is no filter supplied and the smallest bit of dirt will clog the tube.
If it had been easy to take apart and repackage, I would have returned it. But now, I just use it as a dog bowl.
The setup for this item is so incredibly easy. The fountain is beautiful, and the trickling water adds a lot to the garden area. The only thing missing from the design is something to automatically track the sun - but that would greatly raise the price, and it's not that big a deal to go move the solar panel every now and then.
This fountain ONLY works when the solar panel is in direct sunlight. I have to move it all day to keep the fountain going. THe panel does NOT charge so it does not run at night either. THe water is stagnent more than it is running. Also, the 'pots' are delicately resting on the metal rings and very easily fall off. Would never recommend.
