Dead fountain



My Mom and Stepfather bought this fountain when they first got married and moved to their house in Columbia. When they moved to Bethesda, Steph and I inherited it. So it's a good 11 years old. Well, the pump finally died and I went out to Home Depot to get another one, but then I decided it was time for a change and so I bought a new fountain today. It's just a cheap copper one from Smith & Hawken, but I wanted something in the meantime before I find the fountain of my dreams, which I envision will be a slate kind of thing that hangs on the wall. Then I'll put the now current one in the yard or something. But I like having running water in the house because I find the sound soothing.

Goodbye, old fountain. I can't believe you lived so long.

Where does one purchase such a thing though? That's the problem I'm having here. Hmm...

I have no idea. LOL. Of course, there is always Bed Bath and Beyond but those are generally crappy ones. Other than that, garden supply centers are a good bet, although I don't know if the ones they sell can be used inside.
