2.Familiarize yourself with the pump. The switch located at the front of the pump controls the pump speed. The speed is indicated by a plus (+) and minus (-)sign. To increase the speed, move the switch slowly downward in the direction of the plus sign. You will hear a click as the switch moves to each speed level. At its highest speed level, the switch will cease to move any further. To decrease the pump speed, move the switch upward toward the minus sign. Similarly, at its lowest speed, the switch will cease to move any further (Fig 2).

NOTE: It is recommended the pump be set at its highest speed during assembly and later adjusted to a lower setting if desired. Be sure to unplug the pump before adjusting the speed setting.

3.Insert the tube into the pump. (Fig. 3)

4.Set the fountain top onto the base aligning the straight edge of the platform with the straight edge of the inside of the base. (Fig. 4)

5.Fill base with clean water. Add enough water so that the platform is submerged. (Fig. 5)

6.Arrange the rocks provided onto the platform.

7.Attach the A/C adaptor jack to the base power cord. DO NOT plug into outlet at this time. (Fig. 1)

8.Set the fountain on a level, waterproof surface.

9.Plug the cord into 120V household outlet. The switch located on the power cord controls the fountain. If pump doesn't operate, rotate in-lineswitch once to turn “on” and once more to turn “off”. Monthly maintenance will add to your pump's life.

NOTE: Ensure that the electrical cord loops below the electrical outlet to form a 'Drip Loop' (Fig. 6). This will prevent water from running down the cord into the electrical outlet.

• To clean the pump:

Unplug from electrical outlet. Remove it from the base of the fountain. Use a small brush or stream of water to remove any debris (Fig 7).

• To keep water clean:

Periodically change water and clean the product according

to the water condition. Keeping the water clean prevents the Drip Loop water from becoming sticky and formingmicro-organisms.

We recommend distilled water to prevent mineral build-up.

To clean off hard water deposits on the base:

Soak the container in a mixture of vinegar and water to clean and remove any mineral build-up.

Keeping the water at an optimum level:

Add water periodically to keep water level at an optimum level to avoid shortening the life of the pump.

NOTE: Never let the pump run dry, as this will shorten the life of the pump.

• Fountain storage

Unplug the fountain from the electrical outlet, empty the water, and store rocks and fountain in a dry, cool place.


• If the pump fails to operate, check the following:

Check the circuit breaker, or try a different outlet to make sure the pump is getting electrical power.

NOTE: Always disconnect from electrical outlet before handling the pump.

• If the pump gurgles, spews, or “burps”:

Check the water level to make sure the pump has enough water to function.

•Obtaining a desired water level:

Check the water level daily the first week to measure the rate of evaporation; refill with water as needed.

•If water is splashing outside the fountain:

Rearrange the rocks by moving them away from the edge of the base to an area where they are not directly hit by the falling water.
