Maybe it's just me but I need a rail where I don't feel I'm gonna fall off! I like the idea of these transparent ones but too many are too scary!

Here's mine - the birdbath keeps overflowing, dripping into the little stream, then into the pond, then back up to the birdbath again. My father made the birdbath for me.

One caveat not mentioned here is the need to ensure that all the water falls back into the base pot, otherwise you will constantly have to re-fill it. Bubblers that are only a few inch high tend not to have this problem as much as some of the higher fountains where the water falls in a bell or cone shape. With those types, you'll want to have a catchment area around the fountain that will return all the water to the basin - the size of that area depends upon the height of the fountain, the strength of the winds, etc.
