I bought a ceramic indoor tabletop water fountain. At first, the sound wasn’t quite what I wanted, but it’s growing on me. The other one, made of plastic, arrived today. I set it up in my bedroom and the only sound that thing makes is the sound of the pump running, can’t even hear the water move! WASTE of money, fortunately, it wasn’t real expensive. I suppose you get what you pay for … this would make more water noise than what I received today!
