The Aquascape 18" Faux Basalt Column Fountain makes it easier than ever to create an impressive, recirculating fountain. The column measures 18 inches high and 10 inches wide at the base. The fountain is molded from real basalts and handmade in the USA using fiberglass, resin, and real stone to provide an extremely realistic and durable fountain.
Real basalt is extremely heavy and can be difficult to install. Due to the lightweight nature of the faux basalt, installation is quick and easy. The column provides a convenient base, making it easy to secure in place using decorative gravel. The included tubing and plumbing fitting install easily into the recessed area at the top of the fountain.
If desired, add a color-changing or warm white Fountain Light to illuminate the water. The 18" fountain can be added to custom installations or paired with any Aquascape basin and Ultra 400 Water Pump for a simple, complete setup.

- Columns are handmade using fiberglass sheets, resin, and stone aggregate
- Surfaces are easily repaired using a variety of commonly available products. These include:

- Each column includes 3/4" flexible tubing and a small clear fitting. If desired the clear fitting can be replaced with one of the Aquascape Fountain Lights to illuminate the water outlet. If higher flows are desired, the column is designed to fit 1" Schedule 40 PVC pipe.
- The columns are designed to stand up to typical conditions and gravel is generally enough to keep them in place. However, if needed, the base can be further secured by drilling through the fiberglass base and securing to the desired surface using hardware or zip-ties.
- If desired, the base can be cut to fit the columns into tighter spaces. This can be accomplished using a grinder or Sawzall. It is recommended to wear proper eye and breathing protection when cutting fiberglass. Note: if portions of the base are removed, ensure the columns are properly supported/secured when installed.
