Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the time I had some difficulty figuring out how to put the fountain together and then to get the bells to ring.  I found that putting some small crystals in the two central bells helped to regulate the water flow and speed the movement of the floating bells so I got  more ringing. I have the fountain in my writing room and I love it. June 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I love this fountain!. Like a previous customer stated the legs on mine do not really fit in the spaces on the bottom that they are suppose to either. Mine does not splash out at all and I love how the amount of water that flows out the top is adjustable. The sound of the bells is so soft and beautiful. I have it in my workout room which is located next to my office (I work from home so am in my office most of the day) and I love being able to hear it as I work. It is so calming and soothing. I would 100% recommend this! February 21, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Pretty, but problems at least for me This is as beautiful as it is in the picture. However, the central bells are on these legs that are supposed to sit in circles on the bottom of the copper bowl. Mine fit awkwardly, if at all. On top of that, when it is turned on, it splashes sloppily all over the place. I have wood  floors and a wood desk, so standing water is unacceptable. Now it is sitting in a corner, unplugged. Not what I expected for $180. February 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Peaceful I need to first clarify that I do not yet own this fountain...but! I'm in my last semester of school for massage therapy and we have this fountain in the foyer of our school. I love it! It gives the area a peaceful and serene atmosphere. The few times I have found myself to be overwhelmed at school, I go and sit in the foyer, close my eyes, take a few deep breaths and listen to this fountain...it does the trick. It's also pleasing to the eye. I'm looking forward to purchasing one for my massage space. June 1, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comforting The waterfountain is very comforting and the bells are really soft. The only downside to this fountain that i have found is that there are two small holes on the sides, which the plug into the wall do not fit through and I can't figure out why they are there.

Answer: 
The basin for the water and chimes is 16" diameter. If you are talking about the diameter of the largest chime I am unsure as we do not have a sample here in the office. Judging from the the photo the larges chime is around 2 1/2 inches in diameter.

Answer: 
The Water Bell Fountain is not solar powered. It must be plugged into a socket. There are many companies that sell adapters that connect a regular plug to solar panel systems, any of which should work.

Answer: 
The holes are so you can thread a twist tie through the holes to hold the electric cord in place as it traverses over the edge of the bowl. The concept of the holes being for overflow protection doesn't make any sense at all. If you're filling the bowl in the sink, why would you need overflow holes? And if you're filling the bowl where it is placed on your furniture, why on earth would you want to have water overflow onto your furniture? I've had this bowl for years, and overflowing has never been an issue, nor would those 2 holes solve it if it were.
