    Refreshing to see a decent fountain with no crackle.

    Having just read an amendment on the Celtic website, it seems that this is three separate fountains put together.
    For the RRP £20 you get either a silver to gold or a gold to silver. They come in in a mixed case.
    Still lovely fountains though!
    So essentially a variation on Glacier Rising. Similar size and price.

    Is that £20 per fountain? ie £60 for the set up above.

    Looks like it. But as we know Glacier Rising can be got for a lot less than £20 so I'd assume these may be a similar price.

    Three standard 7” cones wouldn’t be far away and would cost around £20/£24.

    The Jorge ones we’ve had are particularly good value.

    Would they last 90 seconds though?

    Or height?

  15. The Jorge 8" cones are excellent, but at a totally different price and NEC than these Celtic items - they last 45 secs.

    I like the fact that these Celtic items change from Silver to Gold, or Gold to Silver, nice touch. Great siblings to Glacier Rising.

    Good point; they last half as long. But a third of the price.

    Very similar in my experience to most of the 13” cones I’ve had, albeit not the Celtic ones. The last really good ones I remember that reached about 10m were Standard Mammoth Conic, many moons ago.

    Would I personally go for one of these or three 7” in a fan for similar money?? It’s similar to the old chestnut of launching a single £25 rocket v’s a volley of five decent ones from a pack.....budget decision I suppose.

    Very nice fountain though, nevertheless. :cool:

    going , long duration , used to fill my garden , all my family loved large cones .
