Step 1: Mark and Drill the Tile

Eyeball the placement of the waterfall and mark the spot on the wall. Find center on the wall (Image 1), then place the hanging bracket on the wall and mark the holes.

Attach a depth guide to a hammer drill and drill holes 1/2" into the tile (Image 2). Screw hanging bracket to wall.

Step 2: Attach the Basin

Measure down from hanging bracket to find the location for the top of the bottom basin (Image 1).

Dryfit the basin, mark the hole locations and drill them out. Add anchors for support and attach the basin (Image 2).

Step 3: Finish Installation

Attach slate to the hanging bracket.

Set the pump in the basin and snap in the basin tray, then add rocks.

Fill the fountain with distilled water, which will keep the pump from clogging with hard water deposits.
