Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: Contractor was to build a pondless water fall structure with 2 drops. Only 1 drop was installed and the pump is now not working. Contractor installed a pondless waterfall structure in our backyard. It was suppossed to have 2 drops and it only has 1. The pump feature seems to be leaking as we are filling the water basin on a daily basis, sometimes with-in a few hours. Luckily we did not have an auto-fill feature installed or would not have found out about this issue. The contractor has come out twice to investigate and solve the problem. After each visit, the problem seemed to have been solved. Unfortunately after a day or two the water pump was having the same issues. The pump has now been off for 3 weeks and the contractor is no longer responding to our emails.
Desired Settlement: tear down and rebuild structure with the agreed upon 2 drops, install a functioning pump or refund us our money
