Water Table and Runnel

This granite modular fountain features an upper basin with a monolithic granite stone at the center. Water spills from the granite monolith and flows down a long, solid granite runnel. It freefalls at the end into a round lower drain trough. The water then returns to the collector tank and recycles through the filtration system.
