Purchased this fountain and within few months the pump stopped working. It's now discontinued and not returnable!

    Very nice
    We have enjoyed this all season under a covered porch... Requires a regular refill to top it off every day or two. It is lovely! I only wish that the cord did not come out of the top of the bowl... So it should be placed against a wall to hide that. Easy to clean! Great water sound.

      It will do ...
      This fountain is just ok. It really does look nice ... that's where my happy ends. The cord for the pump hangs over the edge which is a tad unsightly. The pump is totally insufficient for the size of the fountain and the flow of water required for an overall classy presentation. As it stands in my yard currently, it looks like a childish attempt at a front yard fountain from a preschool rather than a sturdy classic looking and soothing fountain. My mistake was not seeing this put together at my local store. Should have been my first clue... Hubs is gonna get a slightly bigger pump to see if that improves anything. Let's hope for the best.

        Great planter, sorry pump
        Love the planter. The top half is easy to adjust so it is level and the water flows out evenly, giving a nice sound. I used a separate pot to hold a hosta. The pump made in China crapped out after a couple of hours. Didn't try to get it replaced, just bought a replacement from local HD. Of course it Is made in China too. Wish me luck! The cord comes out the top, which is a little unsightly. But that makes it easy to replace the pump .

          Not a great buy.
          Although the fountain and pump are working, the design allows the water to dissipate and/or "splash" out of the container. I have tried everything but the next day the water is gone and the pump doesn't have enough water to pump.

          OK ... but cord placement made it unusable.
          The fountain itself was fine ... looked as I expected, etc. However, the electrical cord hangs over the lip of the water basin, making it look cheap. Strangely, there was a notch in the base to accommodate the cord if had it exited through the base. This item was returned.

            2-Tier Fountain
            Product is lovely. I really wanted a fountain for the backyard. The only think I do not like about this is the plug...the plug just hang out the side. Would have been nice if it came out the bottom. But I can live with it - as it was an excellent value on sale and free shipping!

            So cute
            This is really cute, the sound of the water dripping is really nice.. My plant is very happy siting on top and looks nice. Our boxer loves drinking water from it, it's funny... We really like it... Can't add photo I tried..

              not very sturdy
              It is attractive and easy to put together. But the upper tier simply sits on the lower tier and would fall over easily in heavy wind. The raccoons in my yard would knock it over in a minute. The water power was low--it simply tricked over the edge. The pump just sits underneath and the power cord hangs over the lip of the fountain.

              Broken
              Item was broken when I started to put it together. Disappointing how many items arrive broken these days. Have not called manufacturer as instructed yet. Maybe they can make it good. So, at the moment I have to give this a poor review.

              Nice decoration fountain
              Not totally plastic material.It looks like some kind of clay.Easily install. I found it the water splash out of the fountain at first.But thats becuz the ground is rough.Then I move the fountain to the flat ground and adjust the power of the pump.Yes,the power of the pump could be adjusted.That the water no more splash out the fountain. I really like this fountain.

              Needs design overhaul
              This fountain is very nice to look at. It's lightweight and easy to assemble. The multiple water outlets makes for a nice water fall sound. That's where the positive comments end. The pump is completely external which means you have this cord hanging over the side of the fountain which takes away from the ascetics of the overall fountain. They could have done an internal pump install which would mean the power cord would come out of the bottom and you really would not see it. The planter portion on the top does not drain so you really can not place a live plant in it unless you intend for the plant to drown in water due to the soil will be waterlogged. The water basin for the actually fountain is not wide enough. Therefore during the course of operation the water tends to splash out of the fountain which leads to the fountain losing water after a short period of time . It does say in the instructions that you really should not leave the fountain running unattended for extended periods of time. I would give it only a day of it running unattended. I have to refill mine everyday. There was not a built in reservoir to keep from having to refill the main fountain daily. Over all it's a nice fountain to look but the overall design is poor. Do not go on vacation or out of town without turning off this device.

              Not worth the price even at a discount...
              Plastic material ..better off buying a pump and getting some rocks and building one with your creativity

                Beautiful
                I have been looking for a fountain that was just right in size rather than purchasing the usual dish type with tiers. This fountain looks just like a flower pot overflowing with water. It was easy to assemble and I nestled it off to the side in my front garden among the roses and the rhododendron. It is just right in width and height and serves the second purpose of a flower pot which matches a cast iron pot of the same shape and color that is paced on a wall column. The sound of the water is soothing and it stands out as people do not expect it to be a fountain.

                Looks more expensive!
                I wanted a new planter/fountain that fit to my townhome. I like to see things when I buy them and was happy to see my local HD had this one in stock. Well, it was not displayed and I walked right passed it because the box was so small. After receiving assistance from the nicest lady, we opened the box and I was surprised at the size, just right! It looks great! The planter is small but the over all product looks like it cost way more.
