My fountain sounds like...

sunny_dayzJune 11, 2010

someone is peeing. Yes, I'm serious. No, I'm not a kid on summer vacation trying to stir things up.

I received a fountain as a gift from my new mother and sister in law. I love them both with all my heart and am trying to make this gift work and not return it.

The sound is most unpleasant, both tone and volume. The pump is quiet but the sound of the running water is both loud and constant.

The fountain is vase shaped with two slits in the front for the water to run down the side and find it's way inside of the vase shaped container where it hits the water inside.

I have tried putting stones both inside and on top where the water initially comes out. I have also tried changing the amount of water inside the fountain, where the water lands. No luck.

Any ideas?

Have you tried piling the stones so the water doesn't go directly into the basin? My pump has a flow control thingy so you can reduce the amount of water flow. It is on the pump housing that is underwater. You might check for that too.
