Real basalt is extremely heavy and can be difficult to install. Due to the lightweight nature of the faux basalts, installation is quick and easy. Each column provides a convenient base, making it easy to secure in place using decorative gravel. The included tubing and plumbing fitting install easily into the recessed area at the top of the fountain.
If desired, add a color-changing or warm white Fountain Light to illuminate the water (#84072, #84008 sold separately). The set of 5 columns is great for use with large custom fountain reservoirs.
