Bought this one after a year of shopping. It is one of the most beautiful fountains around. Very easy to assemble. Must be perfectly level. Has stood up well to some strong winds and storms right away..even racoon paw prints on the side of it...Hasn't tipped over. Very fussy about the amount of sunlight it gets. In full sun the fountain head shoots high. When a cloud passes, the stream lowers or stops completely. If you don't mind an on again/off again fountain you will love it! No wires...No plumbing! Easy and looks and sounds beautiful!

Loved the look and function of this fountain until the finish started peeling and bubbling after a few weeks. Plow and Hearth replaced (thank you!), but the second did the same thing. Sometimes the solar panel piece seems to get too sealed to the bowl and water has trouble reaching the pump - needs frequent cleaning to avoid. Otherwise, great flow. I was really sad, because it would have been the perfect fountain if the finish didn't break down.

Pretty; not a great perfomer
By Squire Thad

About Me Budget Shopper
Comments about Plowhearth Solar-Powered Fountain Birdbath:
I would not normally pay this much for a birdbath. However, it is beautiful and, given the price and the size of the solar panel, I thought it would store up energy and bubble even after dark (as do my pathway lights, which have much smaller solar panels).I was wrong.The fountain function stops as soon as the sun goes behind clouds. What results is a still basin of water, which: (1) could be had much cheaper, if that's what one wants; and (2) becomes a mosquito breading ground, which precisely what I hoped to avoid in buying a bubbling version.Not worth the money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

More than one use
from Columbus, OH
About Me Midrange Shopper
I purchased one several years ago. I have had to replace the solar pump twice. Now none of the pumps will fit the older size. Very disappointed in not having a bubble fountain. I use is as just a bird bath but i already had one of those so it is not what i wanted.

Pretty but also disappointing
from Paducah, ky
The fountain only operates in bright sunshine. If one cloud comes by, it stops. This is so disappointing and a better battery would have solved this.I had to say whether or not I would recommend this. Not sure. But yes, as we enjoy it, but its often shortlived.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from Monroe, LA
My boss got this for our boutique/salon and put it in the backyard with the bird and squirrel feeders, and the birds LOVE it! It's easy to set up, lightweight but sturdy, and really adds to the animal sanctuary feel we are trying to create. I would highly recommend it!!

Good looking but doesn't work well
from Birmingham, AL
Does not attract birds.Flowing water sounds nice but solar panel was replaced at least annually. Could push it over easily

the finish bubbled and peeled
from Arnold, Missouri
About Me Novice
Was so excited to get this birdbath, but within three months, the finish bubbled and peeled off. It was expensive, which I don't mind if it is good quality, but this is definitely not.

Item as shown but bung won't stay in
from Avon Lake, OH
The bung that keeps the water in the top of this two-tiered fountain doesn't stay in. If you adjust it at all to make it straight, the bung falls out and no water stays in the top. Frustrating! Save your money and get the plain solar fountain. I liked that much better (until it broke).

Great Product,Birds don't know it
from Chadds Ford, PA
[...]I put it together in about 2 minutes. The solar pump took about a minute to assemble. Very easy.The only problem is....the birds will not use it. The only thing sipping and dipping their feet(?) in it are yellow jackets!any advice on luring birds into the pool!??
Sorry I didn't buy it sooner!

from Dayton, OH
The birds are loving it and I'm spending more time on the porch listening not only to their happy chirps but the soothing sound of the fountain.
Better be Full Sun!
By Billy Bob Birder
from Upstate, NY
The birdbath will only work at full overhead sun. Even the thinnest cloud layer or morning/evening angle will keep it from working.
from Lexington Texas
We like our fountain a lot. So far the cats have not jumped up into it to swim or tip it over(: The motor unit does float about, it would looked better if that part anchored to the bottom somehow. We especially like that it does not look "new" and seems to have been there for years.

Saw a sparrow taking a bath today. Cool.
By Rose Fairy
Product looks nice, alittle expensive though. Solar pump worked good for two weeks, now it hardly pushes any water.The bird bath still looks nice even without the pump working very good.

The center of the dish that holds the water needs to be deeper. The pump does not allow the solar panel to set properly.
