I bought this to have in my office at work to add some tranquility. It looks beautiful and high quality as it's ceramic. No plastic. It does not have an on/off switch which is big negative. It is also pretty quiet.
Yes, it is quiet, so if you want a babbling brook, find another product. I put this in my bedroom for a quiet item to look at more than anything else. The motor is quiet and doesn't interfere with my sleep. It's an attractive product.
I use this as a cat water fountain. My cat won't drink from a water bowl or the traditional pet water fountain. She would only drink from the sink faucet. She WILL drink from bubbling water devises. The previous fountain I owned for her to drink from was a candle with a water fountain. I could not clean this candle fountain so, needless to say, the fountain eventually quit working. The Welland fountain can be disassembled to make cleaning it very easy. Plus for us humans, the running water sound is quite relaxing. I not only recommend this for pet owners, those individuals without pets will love it as well. 😉
