An excellent point. There is actually a local place that sells nothing but fountains and water features, and they have most of their stock installed and functioning in a large outdoor showroom. I can tell you, this is very quiet, with just a quiet, pleasant sound. It also has nearly zero splash, which is something we wanted. The local water is very hard, and we've noticed people that get fountains with a lot of splash, quickly have stained and mineralized paving stones. To counter that, we purposely picked a low splash one, and will set it in a ring of coloured gravel, so no paving stones to stain.
