I have put this solar fountain in my garden for three Summers now and I love it! The pump is really quiet so the only sound you hear is the tranquil splash of running water. Set up is simple; doesn't take more than a few minutes to set up the bowls and stake the panel. The solar panel is fairly sensitive; even with a few scattered clouds the water keeps flowing! I added river rock to the bowls and it gave it just the finishing touch it needed and didn't impede function. Occasionally the bowls will start to grow greenish algae but a few drops of bleach clears it right up. My only complaint would be that living in the Midwest, temps can get high in the summer and you have to keep an eye on the water level to make sure the water level hasn't evaporated below the pump. Looking forward to placed it in my garden again this Spring!
