Yeah, I thought about that. On the little remote they have 3 heights and the middle one seems to be best for my ceiling. Where I had that setup is a bit shorter but in front of the head table is about 12 feet, which should be perfect. One thing, and this may sound silly, but this thing is spitting fire out, although it's really very little. If you stick your hand over the top of it you can occasionally feel a hot spark. I'm probably going to end up installing some kind of fireproof sheeting over the top of the fountain area.Just be careful with a white ceiling .. it might blacken a bit over time from the chemicals.
