  1. Aficianado,

    Great Little Fountain and Excellent Value!
    This is an attractive and functional little fountain and an excellent value as well. The fairly large number of negative reviews it has received seem to revolve around two issues. One is the plastic (and in the opinion of some, “cheap” looking) construction and the noise of the pump.First of all, regarding the plastic construction…this is a $20.00 pump (a great price for what you get by the way) and you are not going to get a fountain with copper and slate for that price. I did get a little bit concerned when I first opened the package, concerned that I might break it when I unpacked it if I weren`t careful. It had been very well packaged however and I Just made sure I was very careful when unpacking it. Once it was unpacked and set up however, I knew that I didn’t have to worry about the quality of its construction. Not only did it seem very sturdy when completely set up, I found it very attractive as well. The fact that it is plastic doesn’t detract from its appearance at all in my opinion.As far as the pump goes, when I first started up the fountain, I also felt that the pump was louder than it should be. I was able to adjust the sound of the water by experimenting with the placement of the pebbles in the base and on the 3 tiers however, and the sound of the pump is no longer a problem for me. I think the manufacturer of the pump would do well to add a section to the instruction manual to the effect that by experimenting with the placement of these stones, one can increase the sound of the water flowing to the point where it drowns out the sound of the pump.After having used the fountain for nearly a month now, I have discovered that the pump noise is EXTREMELY sensitive to the water level. It’s important to keep the amount of water right up to the fill line (which is small and difficult to find). If the water level starts to drop…even slightly….the pump noise will start increasing and continue to do so the farther the water level drops. If it gets too low, the pump can be damaged. On the other hand, if the water level is kept at the fill line, the pump noise should not be a problem for most people. Also, I found that in warm weather I have to add about 10-12 ounces of water daily to keep the water level at the fill line (your mileage may vary). This is not the fault of the pump, it’s just the way things work…in other words, normal evaporation.There is also a water flow control on the pump itself so that you can adjust the amount of water through the pump. You have to remove two screws and take out the pump to do this however and I haven`t found the need to change it so far. Another point about the pump noise is that I was really only aware of it when I was within 1-2 feet of the fountain itself (and I have good hearing). Most people aren’t going to notice the pump noise unless they are in an otherwise exceptionally quiet room and fairly close to the fountain. One last point about the fountain noise is that you need to keep the water level at the proper level. If it drops too much, the pump will become noisier but once the water level is restored the pump becomes quieter again.One of the biggest positives in my opinion is that this fountain uses low voltage DC current for the lights and submersible pump. I’ve always been concerned about indoor fountain submersible pumps which use 120V AC current. Any time household voltage electricity is used in or around water there is a hazard of electrical shock and/or fire. Low voltage reduces this risk to near zero.That is why most building codes these days require the use of a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) in certain household locations (i.e. bathroom, etc.) which will trip a circuit breaker and shut off the electricity if water has gotten into the connections somewhere and is causing potentially hazardous current leakage. You almost certainly have them in the electric wall outlets in your bathrooms (they have a red or black “reset” button between the two outlets) and possibly in your kitchen as well. You can also buy portable GFCI’s at your local hardware and Amazon also sells them (http://www.amazon.com/TRC-90265-6-012-Shockshield-Portable-Protection/dp/B000XU5MEG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1342325556&sr=8-2&keywords=gfci). They plug into any wall outlet.Since this fountain is low voltage (as I mentioned previously) having a GFCI is not as critical. Still, it’s worth having one on it if you want an extra measure of safety or if you are concerned about any water making its way along the electrical cord and into the transformer/wall plug (not likely but still possible). If you have an indoor fountain with a 120V AC pump, you DEFINITELY need a GFCI in my opinion.Another point about this fountain is that mine HASN’T leaked at all. Also, if you inadvertently overfill the water level, such that it overflows the edges of the fountain it can create the appearance of leakage when in fact it is NOT leaking. Splashing over the edges of the fountain can be mistaken for leakage as well. I found that mine does splash a very, very slight amount (an almost imperceptible amount) but after all, it *IS* a fountain and that’s what fountains do!! Again, any splashing can be minimized by experimenting with the placement of the stones. Still it’s best to place it on a surface that cannot be damaged by water, such as Formica, tile, etc. You certainly aren’t going to want to place it on that antique solid cherry lamp table!I also like the placement of the LED lights. There are 3 of them and their placement is well thought out. One is just inside the very top of the fountain where the water streams out. Because the LED is amber, it creates the appearance of dancing water at the top of the fountain. It also can appear to be candlelight. I have also mistaken it for the flame of a candle many times because of this same lighting effect but I consider that a positive.There are two more amber LEDs, one which illuminates the middle tier and the last one which illuminates the bottom tier. Some may find the lower two LEDs too bright but you can easily use a small piece of dark tape to direct the light downward instead of outward. I haven’t found that to be a problem however. Overall, the lighting is very attractive, particularly for a fountain in this price range. You can spend $100-$200 or more for a fountain and get only one LED that shines down from its top however this fountain’s lighting is far superior.Regarding the sound of the water, it is quite audible and can be heard some distance from the fountain, about 10-12 feet or so. Still, it is not a large stream of water….about what you would get if you let a faucet partly open. It is very relaxing and satisfying however, but if you are looking for a more powerful water sound, you will need to spend more and get a larger fountain.The fountain is very aesthetically pleasing, not only from the sound of the water flow but visually as well. It is also versatile. In addition to being a display fountain, it can also be used as a night light and a cat drinking fountain! As long as your expectations are properly set regarding it, (i.e. don’t expect copper and slate for that price and understand that so far, even the very best electric submersible pump is going to make sound that is at least slightly noticeable if you pay close enough attention to it). I like mine so much that I am ordering several more.PROs — Very Attractive Looking- Low Price, Excellent Value- Operates on Low Voltage DC Ccurrent- Relaxing Water Flowing Sound- Well Placed, Well Thought Out Multiple LED lighting- Power ON/OFF switch on line cordCONS — NONE – changed from NONE to Stopped Working Properly after little over 1 month.UPDATE – 08/21/12I have had this fountain in service just slightly over one month now. About a week ago, one of the 3 LED lamps in the fountain stopped working and there appears to be no way to repair since it is imbedded in the plastic structure of the fountain. A few days ago, the second of the three lamps stopped working as well. Right now, only one of the three lamps continues to work properly. It is now past the return window with Amazon so I cannot return it or receive a refund for defective merchandise. I am continuing to attempt to get Amazon or the product manufacturer to refund my money.Also, Amazon’s policy on reviews does not allow a change in the rating originally provided at the top of the review otherwiseI would be lowering the rating on this item to at least 3 stars.UPDATE #2 – 09/18/12After not all that much pressure on my part, Homedics, the manufacturer of this fountain agreed on August 30, 2012 to replace the fountain if I returned the defective fountain to them using their prepaid shipping label (no cost to me). I had sent emails which were not quickly answered but contacting them by phone seemed to be the ticket to getting the replacement. I received the replacement fountain via UPS today so I guess we will now see if the replacement fountain lights work any better than the ones on the original one. I will update this review again after a reasonable time to report how the replacement fared.

    Beautiful little fountain
     We bought this table fountain to attract bees in our backyard. We noticed they were always hanging out in our pool, on a fountain we have in there, and we got concerned about the chemicals in the water harming the bees. We bought a cover for the pool to keep the bees out of the water. This fountain is supposed to offer the pollinators a healthy source of water. The fountain is fairly easy to set up. Make sure you follow the instructions and rinse everything well before running it for the first time. The fountain runs quietly and has a nice sound of water cascading, very calming and not too loud. The top tier has a built in light that creates a nice little glow at night. The flow of the water can be influenced by moving the pebbles and positioning them differently. We added some extra small rocks and pebbles to give the animals more surfaces to land on. The cable is quite long and has an on/off switch, like a table lamp. Make sure to create a drip loop with the cable, as shown in instructions. We are using this outside, and we cover it up at night with just a card box, and turn it off. We are not using distilled water in it, since that’s not good for bees, but filtered water. Can’t say much about longevity yet, since we just got it yesterday. I hope it will last a while with proper maintenance. Overall a very good buy, we are happy. Now we’re waiting for the bees, hoping they’ll like the fountain as much as we do 🙂

    Not calming
    I bought this to have it be a calming noises, especially for when I mediate but the water more sounds like plopping water. It is definitely noticeable that it is cheap when putting together, but looks decent when it’s all together. I did returned this item.

    Pretty & Quiet
    The fountain has a gentle, soothing sound. It’s the right size for a tabletop display & the soft light makes for a nice nightlight. We bought it because one of our cats loves to drink from moving water & she loves it. It’s her first stop after each meal.The fountain is easy to assemble, looks nice, and is a good value.

    Great Product!
     I bought this several weeks ago. I wanted to wait for awhile since most of the negative reviews mention noise level after some use. I use mine multiple hours a day, sometimes up to eight. As you can see in the video I attached, it’s not very loud. This product is a five star product in my opinion. But if you’re like me, its four star rating and countless negative reviews caused some hesiitation. Hopefully, this review will help you make an informed decision.By far the most common complaint concerning this product is the noise level. If you’re extremely careful with maintenance, i.e. changing the water EVERY day, only using distilled water, making sure the water level is high enough to keep the pump underwater, clean the rocks, etc., it will not become noisy. Noise will not rise above the soothing, ambient sound of a waterfall I assume attracted you to this product.The second biggest theme I saw in negative reviews was criticism of its cheaply made parts. I think this is a good thing. Since you need to empty the water daily, you don’t have to worry about damaging expensive parts. Plus, its price point is so low because of the cheaply made materials. You get an item that looks like it could be $$$$, and you paid next to nothing for it. Which brings me to my final point.I’m a prime member. My job rewards us with bonuses I redeem in the form of amazon gift cards. So, most of the Amazon products I have didn’t cost me much. But, some did. My point is I have a lot of stuff from Amazon. Out of all of it, this is the coolest. Its relaxation-inducing sound, the conversation-starting appearance, the way it compliments everything around it, everything about it is amazing. It requires a ton of maintenance to run properly. But, if you decide to buy this, I don’t think you’ll regret it.

    Lo compre porque alguien de la casa por algun tiempo tenia problemas para dormir, el ruido relajante del agua y la luz de la fuente le permitió conciliar el sueño. Hoy está guardada, pero incluso puede servir para decorar un espacio de la casa y el ruido del agua cayendo siempre será relajante e incomparable

     This is a very simple but well made fountain. All of the components are plastic, but the finishes are good enough that for viewing purposes – which is what this is for – it’s practically no different from the metal and wood that it imitates. Assembly is easy and the included pebblestones – which are real – that you can scatter adds an air of authenticity to the set-up.The pump is not completely silent, and emits a quiet hum that is noticeable in a completely quiet room but would otherwise be undetectable in a room with other sounds, such as computer, music, fan/hvac, keyboard typing, etc. The yellow LED lighting is a nice touch although we’ll have to see how long they last.Overall quite impressed with the quality for the price and I’ve enjoyed watching it when I wanted to take my eyes off the computer screen to focus on something else. Longevity remains to be seen but other than the lights I don’t see anything that could fail easily. If the design of this fountain is appealing to you then this is worth a shot.

    This should not have been supplied in the UK. The plug is 2 pin and the appliance requires 120V but the Uk uses 240V

    After waiting for a month for this to be shipped from Germany to Spain, item arrives with a USA plug. Totally idiotic when you buy something in Europe. Everything is cheap plastic and the silver paint on the ‘leaves’ will most likely just peel off. After buying a USA -> EU plug, the power adapter warms up but neither the pump nor the lights work. Total waste of a purchase. Save yourself the hassle and rather buy something else.
