I bought this fountain to replace a larger cement fountain that leaked. This was for an apartment balcony so I needed something that doesn't spray water everywhere! Although there is a bit of a splash, it's not much...best used outside though. I buy fountains with an eye for how the birds will like them; they drink out of the fountains and bathe in them, so I need various levels. I needed something smaller and lighter (the previous cement fountain weighed a LOT, and used about 40 gallons of water).....this one, in the box, was 25 pounds; easy to move. A few gallons of water is all it uses. One caveat; it was difficult to connect the pump to the hose. The mouth of the hose was a bit too small...had to fuss with it. A bit tricky getting the pump inside the housing (the top piece) so that the top portion fits in place. Also, you'll need to adjust the "volume" of the water bubble so it doesn't splash too much. It gives off a nice splashing sound, not really loud, but pleasing. Balance the top piece carefully so the water falls down evenly from all sides. Since the fountain was a bit small, I put it on top of some attractive garden boxes and surrounded it with flowers and greenery. Birds adjusted to the smaller fountain very well. Hummingbirds bathe in the bubble, goldfinches drink out of the bottom tier and bathe in the top tier. Very pretty! Good purchase, I'm happy with it.
