Fountain features brass painted metal leaves and stems and a black resin base. Water flows from the tallest metal leaf down to the middle two leaves the lowest leaf and finally to the rock-covered basin will instantly calm you. In the basin the water recirculates with help from the submersible electric pump. No plumbing is required all you have to do is assemble the fountain fill and plug it into a standard indoor electrical outlet. *Color can vary slightly on each fountain. Lighting can be different indoors and out as well as differences in computer monitor lighting. Some fountains may appear darker because of the lighting in the room. Therefore slight color variation is not a cause for return.
