    I'd love one but my garden's too small. Hope you enjoy yours.

    Yes, lots of reviews of Bernini water features mention the short life of batteries and then having no UK dealership to buy spares from. I think these types of things look good initially but having to keep topping up water due to evaporation and the inevitable build up of algae/slime would make them a bit of faff.

Same in the 3rd summer so obviously the panels are made to last just one summer. I kept the base as a bird bath but a couple of years later it was so brittle that it cracked and I took it to the dump.

    Thatís the end of my involvement with Bernini.
    Me too Erics Mum. I couldn't believe the price of this, and certainly wouldn't fork out for it now. Mine lasted 2 years before it ended up as a bird bath, then hit the skip. Like another poster said, the water kept evaporating, and the algae needed clearing out - same with all fountains I know, but what you dream in your head sadly doesn't match up with reality !!!!

    And another thing... does Michael Perry speak ???? We've gone from one extreme to the other, whereas Mr self promotion - the Gnome never stopped bloody talking, I've rarely heard this one utter more than a few words - well, who can with Gaunt features and Craig waving his arms about, I suppose.

    Yes, he is handsome but he knows it. I'll let him off though as he's more appealing that the other presenters and guests.
