    This pump has been sitting around for years, and Rich decided we needed another fountain yesterday.

    Looks great! I have the pump on an old half barrel. Would need to replace barrel to make water feature. Can't have too many water features.Love the sound of trickling water.

    Just the thing for any garden - large or small. The pump looks like new.

    Yes the pump was painted. I'm sure it won't look like this for very long.

    I love the sound of water fountains in the garden. The solar pump on mine out front died recently, I really miss hearing the water. We have a new pump just have to remember to get put it in place.

    An honorable old pump gets a new life. For years I had to use one each day always having to remember to save some water to prime the pump.
