Glass Waterfalls: DIY vs Professionally Made

Posted by on

You love the idea of having a glass waterfall in your entryway, living room, sitting room or even in your garden. A glass fountain provides the elegant look and peaceful, calming trickle that would greatly enhance the relaxing atmosphere of the space.

You may have already done some online research and shopping on glass fountains, and have found people have built their own, working glass fountain.

Whether you are leaning towards building your own or purchasing one from a company that specializes in water fountains, you want to make sure you get what you pay for and you want it to last

Before you blindly jump into your DIY glass fountain project, here is a comparison of your two choices:

DIY Glass Waterfalls


  • You’ll know exactly what you’re getting
  • You don’t have to worry about the delivery and set-up
  • You’ll know how the fountain works
  • You’ll have the sense of accomplishment afterwards
  • You can customize your fountain to an extent
  • Your fountain will be truly unique
  • Potentially lower costs


  • Lower-quality craftmanship
  • Limited customization based on your own ability
  • Lower-quality materials
  • It takes a lot of time, patience and expertise to build
  • No warranty or course of action in case it breaks or stops working
  • Cost of the parts can make it cost more than a professionally made fountain
  • May not be as durable
  • Can be harder to move and clean

  • Potentially higher cost
  • Maybe too complex to fix yourself should anything go wrong
  • A sense that the fountain isn’t completely unique because it was made in a factory
  • You’re working with a company who may or may not be trustworthy
  • Fountain components can be made overseas
