Description

The Fonthill Fountain in Basin is a fountain which makes a grand statement! This beautiful fountain cascades water over 3 tiers and into the large basin below. The undecorated bowls allow your attention to drift to the center posts, each decorated with simple arched lines to draw your eye to the next tier.

  • Dimensions: 104" in diameter x 78" high
  • Weighs: 3761 pounds
  • Shown in Alpine Stone (AS). Available in your choice of 12 classic and distinct patinas. Each of these finishes is applied by hand in a multi-step process to make every piece a uniquely beautiful original. Unlike a painted finish, the finish on this fountain does not prevent the natural aging process and therefore allows it to weather naturally in an outdoor environment.
  • Proudly made in the U.S.A. from premium cast stone concrete to last a lifetime
  • No plumbing needed! Water recirculates within the fountain
  • Includes a whisper-quiet, UL-listed pump
  • Cord plugs into any standard 3-prong electrical outlet. An outdoor-rated extension cord can be used to lengthen the cord
  • Free Shipping to any address in the Continental USA!
  • Normally ships from the factory within 2 weeks
  • Ships on a pallet via truck. The truck driver will place your palletized item on your property but cannot assist with final placement or installation.
  • Be sure to place your fountain on a solid, level foundation. Specific assembly and care instructions are included with the fountain
  • Winter Care Information: Protect your fountain from small chips and cracks by draining and covering it in freezing weather. Please see our use and care page for further suggestions. It is also recommended that the pump be brought indoors during periods of freezing weather
  • Campania International recommends the Medium Fountain Cover (CMP-FTNCOV-MED) for this fountain. Please Note: the fountain cover will not cover the basin

  1. It's STILL Big 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Oct 2017

    This is a supplement to my earlier review.

    I placed four lights on the tub, inside of the coping. I used stainless clips drilled to accommodate mounting holes on the lights.

    This fountain is spectacular at night. The sounds are soothing and almost magical. It is the centerpiece of a large patio, and complements the walls and pavers beautifully.


  2. It's BIG 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Sep 2017

    First, the dimensions on the ad are wrong. The plastic tub is 90" across. There are coping pieces that add about 5" on both sides, for a total diameter of about 100". This is important it you are trying to center the fountain, and place it next to an outlet.

    Second, it doesn't require one pump, it requires two. There is an extra stopper with 2 holes to accommodate the cords. The basin is a heavy duty laid up plastic assembly that has a drain plug and a shallow tunnel on the bottom through which to run the power cords. Note that the drain plug is 180* degrees away from the cord tunnel, so keep that in mind when you plan for your electrical connection.

    The packaging is extraordinary. It comes on two pallets, each about 6' tall. The cast stone pieces are placed on pieces of OSB, and wood excelsior is placed in between the cast stone pieces. Each pallet was wrapped in cardboard and plastic wrap. There is an impressive pile of excelsior left over when both pallets are unpacked.

    Unpacking the pallets is a bit of a challenge given the weight of the sections. I had a skid steer with pallet forks, and extra pallets. It wasn't too hard to slide the pieces onto the extra pallet, and move them to place. The big bowl is 545 pounds, so keep that in mind. It just stacks together, without any glue or mortar.

    The instructions were wanting. A few more photographs or drawings would have made it easier to understand. But there are not that many pieces, and the location of each is unmistakable.

    It is "recommended' that the pumps be removed for freezing weather. I doubt whether in the history of the world this has even been done, since (if the fountain is installed on a hard surface) every one of the 3500 pounds of fountain must be disassembled. The "tunnel" molded into the bottom of the tub will not allow the plug to pass through. I guess another option would be to cut the pump cord, and them in the spring reattach with a waterproof connection. I think I'll dry it out and take my chances. If I have to replace the pump, I'll cut the cord then and make the connection.

    The multiple sections of coping around the tub do not fit together perfectly, but they do fit well enough. The overall appearance is spectacular. There isn't a lot of "action" to the fountain, but the next project will be to add some jets and lights to the basin.
