Keep this in mind before buying an indoor fountain. Water fountains are good as a feng shui ENHANCEMENT for more money, networking and romance – in the PROPER area – of your home. (LoShu flying stars feng shui will tell you the BEST areas to have fountains). If you have animals like us who drink out of the fountain then you will need to clean this fountain often. This is where you need to decide if the maintenance is worth it. If you don’t have animals who drink from the fountain then the cleaning schedule is much less. I clean this fountain every three weeks and it takes about 90min.
