For the price it's pretty nice!

Was looking at fountains ranging in the $200-$500 range and liked the look of this one. So i ordered it. The box came to me pretty banged up so I was worried it might have gotten damaged. The water gods shined kindly upon me as this sucker weighs a ton and I had to drag it up to a third floor and returning it was not going to be an easy option. Fortunately, it was intact and actually pretty easy to put together. The part where you screw the thing into its base was not aligned well...a production issue i imagine, but i think it will hold up with just one screw as its so heavy. With bated breath I filled it up and turned it on and then.....Nothing happened for about two minutes then wa-la, water!
The motor is so quiet I had to keep checking the hose during those two minutes to feel for action! Which means the motor is super quiet and now I have a lovely, very heavy 3foot or so fountain making soothinng fountain noise on my deck. And so far I really like it.
Not bad for something shipped from god knows where in china and a lot better than the other goofy fountains (also made far far away) that I saw at menards and home depot. I had a bit of buyers remorse thinking who spends money on fountains but the soothing flow of water from this fountain makes me forget about the silliness of such a purchase. If you are similarly inclined to spend money to try to create a small zen oasis for home or patio this is a good choice!!!
