Our Copper fountains are handcrafted by Daniel Doolittle. They are 100% Copper, even copper brazing rod is used to join the sculptures together.
The Patina finish is a chemical process that is the same that happens over time when you use ordinary tap water,causing calcium and mineral buildup with the copper sulfate brought up through the unsealed tubes creating beautiful hues of blue and Verde.
Copper fountains are easiest to care for when you just let them change to their beautiful whites, blues and greens,much like the “Statue of Liberty”. Maintenance only consists of cleaning off the pump intake and changing the water! If you would like to keep the fountains just as they are, it requires a little more work, like keeping them indoors and using distilled water.You should then empty them after use and wipe down with a soft cloth and dry thoroughly!
Proper care of your fountain will ensure having a fountain for generations to come and not only that, you will have a one of a kind, sculpted, handcrafted piece of art!
All of our fountains are designed for outdoor and indoor use and are adjusted to have no splash!
We have a “Lifetime” warranty on our craftsmanship. Pumps have a Limited warranty for “1 year” and usually last 5 to 8 years.
