USE CAUTION WHEN PURCHASING METAL FOUNTAINS
UPDATE JANUARY 2019
We looked at newly manufactured Lady and Lady wing fountains along with 2 spout fountains in the hope of having them available for Christmas. They have not changed and still have the same quality issues. When questioning the quality issue, we were told "everyone else is selling them and when customers complain, we should tell them that is how they are supposed to look." This is not acceptable to us. But it does shed light on the business model of sellers who rely on the naivety of shoppers to purchase sub-par products. Use caution as some sellers are claiming their fountains have no issues or they manufacture their own fountains. See Original Post Below
To Our Loyal Customers,
For 15 years, we have provided the best quality metal absinthe fountains to our dedicated clientele. Over that time, we've ALWAYS physically inspected and water leak checked every fountain for quality and appearance ensuring your fountain is flawless and will look beautiful for many years to come.
In The Interest Of Transparency
Recently, we noticed a problem with fountain quality and have been returning 50-60% of our metal fountains to the manufacturer due to unacceptable quality control. I will not sell inferior quality products. As such, I can no longer offer certain styles of metal absinthe fountains. There are currently poor quality, metal fountains being sold worldwide at outlets including Ebay, Amazon and various retail stores. Some vendors even say their fountains are not affected as they "manufacture" their own which is simply not true.
**The only metal fountains not affected by quality issues is the food grade premium fountain HERE and the Bistro fountain HERE.
We will no longer be stocking the following fountains:
Bistro Absinthe Fountain 2 Spout
Lady Absinthe Fountain 2 & 4 Spout
Lady Wings Absinthe Fountain 2 & 4 Spout
*In short, all Lady Fountains With or With-Out Wings and 2 spout fountains may be affected.
We have an inventory of Bistro 4 Spout Fountains that meet quality guidelines. Once these are sold, they will no longer be available. We will still have the Premium Metal Absinthe Fountains available. They are more expensive but are a true Luxury Fountain.
Identifying A Bad Fountain
As most retailers continue to sell problem fountains, use extreme caution when buying a metal absinthe fountain. Make certain you are not required to pay return shipping cost. Also, look at the glass bowl making sure it is sitting level, especially the "Lady" style fountain that may have incorrect positioning of the mounting cup held in the Ladies hand. You may also see chipping nickel plate, misaligned spigots and spigots that leak badly.
I want to thank you all in advance for your understanding and let you know we will restock the metal fountains as soon as their quality is up to par.
