Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roxy6 Second Fountain, Still as Nice
This is the second fountain of this type I have purchased at Home Depot. During a period where I was unable to clean the fountain for about six weeks (due to hand surgery), it got badly stained and no amount of scrubbing got the stain off! I usually clean it every two weeks and I also add a clarifier to the water (bird safe) that I put in the fountain. So make a note about that, you want to keep on top of cleaning it.
One word of caution. I don't think you can order these online, and you wouldn't want to; they had to open three boxes before I found a fountain that was not broken. I live in southern California and don't have to worry about freezing temperatures at night, or any sort of winter weather that can damage these, but you would want to take the other reviews into consideration on that point. Surveying the damage just in the box, I can see where they would crumble to bits in the wrong conditions.
Fountain is extremely heavy, I get gold stars for getting it up one flight of stairs into my apartment, piece by piece, BY MYSELF which means, yeah, anyone can do it! Sets up fairly quickly, you do have to level the tiers to make sure the water falls evenly. Still love it.

Fountain was very pretty but it began to crumble in approximately 9 months. I was very disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kato Great Fountain for the price, but you can't leave it out for the Winter.
I have read so many negative reviews of this fountain crumbling and falling apart after a year or so. I noticed that most people with this issue left the fountain outside for the winter. The instructions clearly say that the fountain must be moved indoors during the winter. Draining it and covering it, but still leaving it outside, isn't going to stop the effects of freezing weather on something that was not built to withstand the freezing/unfreezing cycle of winter. This being said, and after reading so many people with issues with this fountain leaking and falling apart, I purchased a clear cement sealer and sealed the fountain. I will also be moving the fountain into the basement before the cold weather sets in. If this were an all cement fountain it would cost hundreds of dollars more. I will report back next year with the condition of my fountain.

I've had problems with this fountain since purchase. About two months after I purchased it it started to leak. Applied some sealer and problem solved. In the spring the cement that the fountain was made from started to crumble. I'm now going to have to get a new fountain but it certainly won't be like this one. Very disappointed in the fountain. I hope you have better luck if you purchase this.

Bought this fountain in 2012 for $109.00. 3rd season in Wisc. and looks almost like the day I bought it. Bring it out on Memorial Day and put it in the basement after Labor Day. DON'T LET IT FREEZE!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Socaldk Excellent two tier fountain
Got this to replace an urn fountain I bought about two years ago from home depot. This compliments my yard so much nicer and the sound of the water is loud and refreshing. The birds tend to like my new addition as well and the added bonus is with it being a tiered fountain the basin is high off the ground and has less dirt/debris accumulation that can clog the pump. The access door in the back makes cleaning the pump fast and easy, way better than my previous fountain. Putting it together took less than five minutes, no joke, everything just drops in place. This is a very nice addition to any yard or outdoor patio area. Only thing to keep in mind is it splashes a bit so don't put it anywhere you want to avoid water spots (I have it next to brick and in an area with ground cover and rocks so it's fine and the splashes add to the effect). For the price you'll be hard pressed to beat this setup.
