Great and easy. Item shows a 10 foot tube and it is only 6 foot.
Can I get my 10 foot tube?

The birds love it!
This kit really does only take a couple hours to set up. I actually re-positioned it a few times until I got it where I wanted it. My only complaint is that the hose that came with it is supposed to be 10 feet long and mine was only 6 feet. I was anxious to get going so I bought a longer hose at HD. I spray-painted the 3-tier cascade a textured stone color instead of leaving it black. The birds really love this pond! It didn't take long for them to find it, either. Since they only need an inch or two of water to bathe in I added rocks and stones (gathered from my yard) inside and they enjoy having these little outcrops to step on to observe before they jump in! The outer stones I purchased or got from my neighbor. The pump works great, too. I have had the pond for about 2 months and I do clean it every couple of weeks because the algae does build up, but cleaning is simple. For me I just put all the rocks in a big bucket, scoop out the water, use a diluted bleach/water mix and clean the cascade and liner with a soft brush, then re-add the rocks and water. I plan to get a de-icer for the winter months. I relally love this pond!

Great for the price
This birdbath pond took almost no time to dig, layout and finish! It looks great among my birdfeeders (not too near the pond) and garden and lends a definite feel of nature! The birds are a bit slow to find it, however; and I need to reposition the stick that I placed across the pond for them to perch on, as it's still too far from the water for them to just bend over and drink. I would recommend that the manufacturer develop a screened cage or covering for the pump, to prevent the constant blockage of the intake vents on the pump. Once they're covered with leaf debris, etc.... the waterfall flow almost stops, so I do need to constantly monitor that. Otherwise, it's definitely a good purchase for my budget! The squirrels love it, too, as a water source. I have only seen our wild turkeys visit one morning since I installed the pond, so I don't know if they are drinking from it yet.
