ORIGIN OF THE STONE
All our stones are specially quarried and shipped from India. The slate stones
of India are renowned worldwide for their beauty and elegance. Every stone
is hand cut and its edges chiseled to perfection making each of the slate fountains a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Because no two stones are
alike, your fountain is an original. Therefore, your stone will vary in
color, texture, and thickness (up to a quarter inch in thickness) compared
to the stones seen in our showroom and brochure. The black stone has some variation of shade; however, the most dramatic difference
is seen in the remarkable multi-color stone, which varies in its range of
greens, reds, golds, and rusts and the green stone which varies significantly in texture.
METAL HOOD AND TRAY
All our copper components are fashioned from high-grade copper mined from
Kennecott Copper Mine located near Salt Lake City, Utah. The unique
marble-like finish is burned onto the copper one piece at a time by
skilled artisans. A clear coat finish is then applied to the metal to give
it a high gloss finish as well as to protect the copper from naturally
turning green over time. However, If you would like the copper to have a
natural patina look, please specify this in your custom order and we will
not apply the clear coat finish to the copper. (If ordering the natural
patina look, please allow for an additional one to two weeks for
Your custom orders are welcomed. We can work with you to customize a
fountain to your specifications. For instance, fountain height can be
shortened. We can also manufacture customer specific fountains of most
shapes and sizes. In addition, company logos can be etched into the stone
for an additional cost.
Before installing, we recommend installing an electrical
outlet in the wall directly behind where the stone will be placed.
Fountains can be installed on almost any type of wall, including cinder
block and metal stud walls. They can also be installed outdoors; an
optional lid for the hood is available to help weatherproof the fountain's
Each of our slate water features has a ninety day parts and labor and
a three-year parts only limited manufacturer's warranty on the hood, base,
water distribution and stone. The electrical system has a ninety day parts
and labor and a one year parts only limited manufacturer's warranty. The
re-circulating pump has a one-year manufacturer's warranty.
Although not required, we recommend installing a GFI electrical outlet in
the wall behind where the stone will be placed prior to installing the
fountain. Doing so is more aesthetically pleasing as it will enable you to
keep the electrical cord hidden from sight. Place the electrical outlet
near the center of the stone. For the double and triple stone
falls the electrical outlet should be placed behind the left most stone as
you face it on the wall. If you choose to install an electrical outlet
behind the stone, we recommend wiring it to a wall switch that will enable
you to easily turn your fountain on and off without having to reach behind
the stone to pull out the plug.
Water features act as a natural humidifier and therefore require water to be added daily. The water usage will depend upon the setting, climate,
size, and usage. We recommend only using distilled water.
You may apply 1-3 drops of bleach to the water weekly to avoid
algae growth and unfavorable odors. Never use more than this; too much
bleach will dull the stone.
