Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dissatisfied Crumbles
VERY disappointed. Bought for elderly parents. They took great care to drain and wrap in plastic during winter. Totally dry but full of crack with chunks falling off. Heavy to hall to basement. If basement or garage isn't heated, will severely crack and not hold water. When you reassemble, pieces chunk away. Waste of money. This could be made to withstand. Many exterior fountains found outside 365 do. This $169 to $254 investment is only good for 1 summer. They should have LARGE FONT on box ABSOLUTELY MUST BE STORED IN HEATED DRY AREA IN WINTER OR WILL IMMEDIATELY CRUMBLE APART. Manufacturer should be embarrassed. No pride in this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Crumbled after 2 years
The fountain is nice for the first year. After the first year, the interior started to crumble and after the 2nd year both interior and exterior are rapidly crumbling so the fountain leaks a lot. I drained the water and covered the fountain for the winter but this did not prevent it from falling apart. I would not recommend this fountain.

Bought my fountain last summer and it started breaking apart before a year was out. Just can't take our Tx summers, I suppose. Pump is fine, just the fountain broke into pieces. So sad. My birds loved it so I'll give it two stars

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pg Worst product in the entire store. DO NOT BUY THIS.
Don't know why Home Depot would sell this product. Didn't last one year outside. Completely fell apart over the winter. Had in drained and covered but temperature variations turned it to rubble.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by md Don't buy this fountain.
In less than a year the edges of the bowl started chipping. The bowl is discolored. After just 2 years, there are holes all over the large bowl. Everytime I try to clean it , more chips off. We are in the process of trying to find a replacement. Very cheap quality. Unable to repair it, due to being fiberglass. It was very pretty when we first got it. We called and complained , and they sent us a $30 gift card, which was very nice.

My husband bought this for me and we did store the product in our garage and the next summer we noticed cracks and then it started to crumble and leak water. I believe Home Depot needs to have this product redone and replace all the ones they sold or give back credits to the customers for buying garbage.

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.

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.
