Prepare your location

  • A level, sturdy foundation is essential. Fountains rely on gravity to function properly. Ground that Is not level or uneven could cause a fountain to fall. Concrete, pavers, or some other non-earth material is advised.

  • A GCFI (water-safe) outlet is needed. If one does not exist close enough to your desired location, call a licensed electrician to install one to avoid the use of extension cords. Garden hoses can be great as a water source and smaller fountains can easily be filled by watering can; however, the water level in your fountain will lower over time due to splashing or evaporation so it is essential that it is filled periodically to prevent the pump from running while dry and potentially burning the motor out.

  • Your desired location must be accessible to our team and their equipment in order to safely transport your fountain to its desired location. Obstacles such as, but not limited to, fences, narrow gates, doorways, ditches, rocks, retaining walls, stairs, and steep grades may incur additional costs or result in cancellation of your setup service.
