Replacing the middle bowl on an outdoor fountain

I have an older Fountain that has a large bottom bowl, a middle bowl and a top piece (an angel) that the water comes out of its mouth. The middle bowl has basically crumbled apart. I can't really find a place that will sell me a middle piece for under $200 plus shipping. I need one with a hole in the center for the tubing to go through. Anyone know of a good option?

I couldn't think of an option other than changing the center bowl.
What type of option are you looking for ? A cheaper price, plastic instead of cement, etc. ?

A picture of what you have there would be helpful. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...-pictures.html

I wouldn't really mind a plastic one if it looked similar. I guess I was just wondering where I could find a used one. I'm inserting a photo. The middle one crumbled away so it isn't there. The top piece is on its side. The new middle bowl would go on top and then the little guy that the water goes through his mouth would be on top of the middle bowl.

Funny you should replay today. I had stopped at an outdoor supply store that had all types of custom fountains. The prices are staggering.

We used to have a store near me..... Fountains of Wayne..... awesome and well known place. They have since closed up.

I would check with local garden centers. See if they have parts laying around or may know someone that does.

This place appears to be in your area..... maybe check with them.

I've been looking online but the shipping makes that cost prohibitive.
