  • Centerpiece only
  • Dimensions: 60″ H x 36″ W x 36″ L
  • MaterialCharcoal Grey Granite
  • Pump and misc. mechanical items not included – as this will depend on how the fountain is set up.
  • Check out this Blog Post to learn more about why a GRANITE fountain is better than other more porous stones, and can essentially last FOREVER!
  • And if you’d like to learn more about fountain maintenance, we have many blog posts about that in this area of our website.

Height of water flow:  52″, so a minimum of a 12′ pool surround is recommended for this fountain.  (Or, if you have a windy area or are using a spray ring, an 14′ – 16′ diameter surround is probably the size you should use.)

You can also make a Disappearing Fountain and place this centerpiece over a pond less basin. (which is shown in the video below.)

  • The pump sits within the gravel-covered plastic basin dug into the ground directly beneath the fountain and the water runs down to the polished rocks on the ground.
  • An autofill kit can be mounted to the inside wall of the pondless basin basin, so then you do not even have to fill it up with a hose. 
    • Please note, the water must fall into rocks over the basin, wood chips should not be installed there, as they will degrade over time and foul your pump.
  • Here is a blog post to explain more about this kind of fountain installation: Installing a Disappearing Fountain
  • This kind of installation (as well as the modified self contained) is very good if you have many trees in the area, which would otherwise drop leaves into a pool, and cause major maintenance needs with your pump.

Please Note:

  • Photo is representative of the typical carving details on this fountain. Each hand carved fountain is a little different than the next based on the artisan that carved it.
  • Variations in the natural stone can exhibit unique veining and coloration.  So, you can be assured that no one in the world will have one EXACTLY like yours!
  • Also, if this color of granite doesn’t work well with your surroundings, we also have other colors of this type of fountain here: Sphere Fountains
  • Keep in mind though, that natural stone is typically a lighter color when it’s dry vs a darker/more vibrant color when it’s wet. 
    • Check the sample page photos, noted in the material heading above, to see what this granite looks like wet vs dry.
    • If you like the lighter color, you can seal it with a product called Miracle 511 Porous Plus, to keep it that way for several years, and also make it easier to clean if algae – dirt get on it. 
    • Or, if you like the darker version of the color, you would seal it with a product called Miracle 511 Seal/Enhance – to keep it that color for several years (until the sealer wears off.)
