Not bad.

I don't like that odd wavy spout that's more in the middle of the circle. Unless they are going to put far more water through it, it looks a little lame imo.

Thanks for being so on top of the testing. I was really happy to see some early fountain testing.

OK, last one (well, at least it's the last one that I'm uploading today). This one's a minute long.

Note - it won't work just yet, as it's still being processed. Should be fine in a few minutes, but I'm off to bed now
