I purchased this fountain one for the sound of water in the house and two for a water source for my cats. The water splashes over the edge and drips down the face of the rock and flows over the edge onto the floor. I will be returning thi item as soon as the water dries out of the basin.
This is a lovely fountain. One small problem...after 2 days it began to leak. A small hole but big enough. Rather than go through the hassle of packing and shipping it back, my husband sealed it with some silicone. And so far, so good.
