andquot;Crotchety Crocodileandquot; Piped Spitting Statue
This gator fountain is a real eye-catcher, but we had lots of problems with it.
This gator fountain looks fantastic, but in less than a month, the exterior color was flaking off. My husband took the time to repaint it, then clear coat it so that it would look good again and have some protection against the elements. For the high price, it should've already been coated with a protectant, particularly since it is advertised as an outdoor fountain. The fountain part that comes out of the mouth doesn't work well at all. In fact, it was leaking water inside of the gator body. My husband took it apart and redid it so that it would work properly. Also, the styrofoam packing that it came in was horrible - it flaked into tiny pieces that stuck to everything - I would recommend opening the package outdoors. Although this fountain is a reaI eye-catcher, I would not buy it again.
