and his wife originally came out to my house on 8/23/2014 because my fountain stopped pumping water. They originally thought it was just going to be a flush to remove debri in the pipes and quoted me $150 for the job.
After they flushed the pipes they realized that wasn't the problem. He attempted to diagnose the problem and in that attempt took apart my pump housing/motor. He came to the conclusion that my motor wasn't working correctly anymore. He took my motor information down and told me the following week he would look into a replacement. I also was going to have him replace the automatic water leveler in my fountain and backyard pond at the same time. We decided on $50 for the job and that he would return and finish things the following week.
After he left I decided to try one last thing and replaced the O-ring on my pump lid. Once I replaced the O-ring my pump worked fine again. Apparently my old pump O-ring got old and wasn't creating an airtight seal anymore. However when I turned my pump back on there was a leak coming out the back of the pump where
separated the motor from the housing.
I called and told
that the pump was working so he didn't have to look for a motor but that when he took apart the motor and housing something didn't seal correctly and now there was a water leak coming out the back of my pump.
told me he would come out and fix the problem and replace my water levelers the following friday 8/29/2014.
On 8/29/14
said he was going to come over but wanted to charge $140.00 to change out my water levelers (they are the $15 dollar toilet levelers you get at home depot). When I questioned him he said he needed to pay for buying the levelers, installing them, gas, and child care while he did it. I told him just to come fix the leak he made when he opened the motor up last week and that should be fine as I wasn't really worried about fixing the leveler but have been waiting to turn my fountain back on. This is when things got ugly -
's wife (he doesn't speak English) told me that it was a waste of time to drive out there and they didn't cause the leak in the pump. She started babbling about the fact that I didn't have a pump warranty with them so it wasn't their problem. They were not driving out to my house (an hour away) because it was a waste of their time considering they weren't going to get any money for it.
In other words they opened up my pump and put it back together when they were trying to diagnose my problem. I fixed the problem myself but had to deal with a leak that
made and then decided he didn't want to fix. I consider this horrible customer care and not a way to run his small business. Steer clear from them - I'm completely disappointed in what they did. If you open a motor and put it back poorly then come out and tighten the screws you didn't tighten down well. My pool man immediately came out and told me that the housing gasket wasn't tightened well and it was an easy fix. Just horrendous business practices - I told him did they really want to act like this to me because they rely so heavily on Angie's List -
and his wife could care less and didn't want to get in their car to drive from Cave Creek to
to solve what they were responsible for. I also think they were trying to gauge me financially - I have to pay for their gas and child care?? Just come out and deal with your mistakes so you can grow your small business, keep your clients happy, and let your clients spread the word about you. Well the words I spread about them are steer clear and don't let them touch your fountain!

Overall, we were happy with the work performed. The only drawback was availability. The service provider was almost fully booked for a month when I called.

It went very well.
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
is very professional. I have a small pond in my backyard. It has a very large rock (~500 lbs) in it which has pumps attached to it to send water through the rock and create several little waterfalls. The rock is positioned such that part of it is in the water and part is sitting on the
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
of the pond (out of the water).
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
determined that during the initial installation (2001) of the pond (which he did not do), the rubber liner had been cut too short around the
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
of the pond, therefore making it easy for water to escape out of the pond into the yard (thus lowering the level of the water). He determined that over the years the water had seeped out at the rock's heaviest point on the
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
of the pond. The soil was constantly wet and the rock sank into the wet soil a good six inches. We drained the pond and removed some of the wet soil and left the soil to dry for almost 2 weeks (I covered it to keep the rain from getting it wet). When
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
returned, he raised the rock at the pond's
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
and then had to stabilize the rock in it's new position. He was attempting to get the rubber liner in such a position that it would no longer let water out of the pond (difficult since it was so short and he couldn't really move the 500 lb rock - he didn't want to tear the liner & there's no way to get machinery into my backyard). He added some sand to the soil to help keep it drier even if it did get wet and to help position the liner such that it wouldn't let water out. All of this was great. He didn't do the finishing work because we wanted to make sure that it would fill to the appropriate level and not leak out at that low point. Everything worked very well. I did have him come back to deal with some aesthetic issues that happened as a result of the rock sinking over the years and us having messed with the rock's position. He took care of that very quickly.

didn't do the finishing work (making it look pretty) because I wanted to do that. Since his second trip here, there has been no leaking water at all and the pond has maintained it's appropriate level. I am very happy and would use

again in a heartbeat.

Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
was on time and extremely personable. He was easy to work with and he explained all of the problems we had, how to fix them and how much each cost, giving us the opportunity to only address the issues we chose. The fountains look great. Although both were fixed, one of them needed an electrician's visit to get fully going again.

offered to swing back out afterwards just to make sure all was working properly. Highly recommend.

has been our fountain technician since 2004 when we purchased our fountain. He was recommended by the store where we bought our fountain. We have a very large fountain and it requires monthly service.
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
has been very diligent in keeping the fountain in beautiful condition both visually and technically. The cost is reasonable as well. He has been quick to problem solve when pumps have needed to be replaced and installed. We are very pleased with this service.

I called
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
on Saturday morning and he promptly called back and said he was available in the afternoon that same day! I told him that I had a unique fountain that was made for me out of a giant flower urn and that tree roots grow into the underground box that houses the water and motor and that it hadn't been working for about a year. I had the motor cleaned out once about 3 years ago but it was now 7 years old. When
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
arrived, he said that it was unique and he had not seen something like it but managed to take it all apart (lifting the 100+ pound urn himself) clean it all and get the motor working fine which was great because he said it was a very good and expensive motor. It went from a dark stagnant murky swamp to a smoothly flowing, crystal clear water fountain! Works great and I'm very happy. Cost was a little more than I expected but I guess you get what you pay for. Highly recommend.

We have two custom designed fountains at our property -- like almost all fountains they suffer from algae build up over time and as cleaning them out and scrubbing every stone and pebble is a real chore I was looking for someone who could take on this task. In addition the pump in one of the fountains was behaving erratically, not starting up when submerged....More /> Although
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
was away on vacation when I initially left a message he called back promptly and let me know when he would be back and able to come over. After another service provider (not an Angie's list recommendation!) failed to return my calls I reached out to
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
to set up an appointment. He came promptly and quickly assessed the situation. Despite his best efforts we could not diagnose the fault with the pump so
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
helped find a suitable (and more reliable) replacement which he installed.
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
not only does excellent work at a fair price, he is also a great person to deal with with -- highly recommended.

He did a great job and started and finished on time. The price was very reasonable and we are very happy with the service. He fixed a leak around the waterfall and worked on the overall look of the pond. Our pond is a few years old and needed to be freshened up too. He brought in more rocks and fixed the natural look of the pond because it had settled over the years. He cleaned out the pump and filters and our waterfall works like it was new again! We will definately use him again.

I phoned
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
today and he had time to swing by and do the repairs the same day. We have a fountain that came with our house and it's constantly leaking, flinging water on our stucco (which has been repaired once already and needs to be repaired again because of the water) and in general, the fountain just isn't operating well. I was ready to tear it out, or move it, and asked
Westerville Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
to come over to talk over my options. He said he thought it was definitely out of level (it's 3-tiers) and we had an ill-fitting hose, as well as a really dirty and clogged filter. After speaking with him I decided to have him service the fountain and am glad I did - it looks like a new fountain - I wish I'd taken a before and after.
