Comments about Product: The screws were too large for the openings, but I was able to use a screw driver to enlarge the holes sufficiently.
It was easy to put it together.
I had one since 2004 and it lasted until now. I replaced the solar pump once in the years.
I love the fountain.
I loved it so much that I purchased one for my cousin in another state.
It is used in my backyard flower garden.
Comments about Product: The well packed unit arrived a few days ago and found it easy to assemble. The motor worked immediately when attached to the solar panel. However, I found the panel does not store energy so that the fountain's motor does not work as soon as the sun disappears.
Comments about Product: Attractive and fits nicely in a small area.The solar panel however does not retain any power.As soon as the sun moves off the panel the pump stops.Even though it may not be running it is stll an attractive addition and is a unique addition to a garden.
Comments about Product: We have this fountain set up in the garden by the front door. In days with bright sun, it's super! Unfortunately, at night or cloudy days, the fountain trickles or sits idle.
The metal frame is a little wobbly, and when the fountain isn't precisely level the ceramic trays are challenging to set up so the fountain doesn't leak. I wish this item let us hook it to a power source so it could run in the evening.
Comments about Product: As we finished a re-do of our back-yard and deck, I knew I wanted a small fountain just off the deck. To avoid stringing unsightly electrical wires, that meant it needed to be solar powered. The only place I could find such an item was in your catalogue, and it was perfect for the site we chose.
Comments about Product: The white tubing was too short to curve it around into the water as shown in the catalog. Also, the terra cotta surface is evidently not smooth enough for the pump suction cups to hold the pump in place. That might not be a problem with the glazed ceramic fountains. And the catalog verbiage didn't specify that once the sun no longer shines on the solar panel, the fountain shuts off. We ended up purchasing an electric pump to replace the solar. It sure is cute, though.
Comments about Product: Cascade Fountain is on one corner of my deck overlooking the garden. I would have liked if it were a bit bigger and the price for that. When it works, I love the sound of it; but it requires full strong light to work well, and local trees and leaves swaying in the wind affect its performance. Also, a racoon occassionaly uses it for washing asd it falls apart; however, due its well-fired ceramic nothing has broken. Even my cat drinks from it. The pump often will not stick to ceramic bottom due to pressure on it of the tube going up to top pitcher; this seems like a design flaw. Recommended with reservations: assess how much direct sun you can expect and be willing to tinker with the tubing to keep the pump upright.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
