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.

Lovely Terra Cotta Fountain
from West Los Angeles
About Me Midrange Shopper
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.

this will sit in our garden area for years. had another for about 7 years. finally time for a replacement. really looks great in the yard.
Great in a small garden!
from South Jersey
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.

Nice fountain - when it's sunny
from Des Moines, WA
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.

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.

Some Problems Encountered
from Tracy, CA
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.

Sometimes on, Mostly Off
from Mill Valley, CA
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.
