fountain nozzle will determine the overall look of you finished fountain.
You can combine many different types of nozzles
to achieve the desired end result. Cascade, Foam, or Frothy nozzles
produce a single column of water shooting straight up in the air, while
other nozzles combine several different spray patterns into one nozzle.
The first step in designing your fountain is
to determine what type of spray pattern you want. Because the type of
nozzle, quantity of nozzles, and the height that you want your water
pattern to go, will ultimately determine the size of the pump and the
power of the lights that you will need to put into your fountain. The
overall size of your fountain pool or basin will also be a determining
factor in how high, and wide you will be able to spray your water while
keeping the water in the pool. As a general rule of thumb, water has
the ability to splash the distance it falls. This holds true up to about
eight feet. So if you have one center column of water shooting straight
up four feet, in theory you will need an eight foot diameter pool in
order to contain the splash. Everyone wants to cheat on this basic rule.
The final decision or question is how much splash out, are YOU willing
to accept. While the nozzle or nozzles will determine the water pattern,
the pool or pond is the most important part of any fountain. Because
if you can't hold water, you don't have a fountain. We sell a wide variety
of pre-made fiberglass pools in sizes up to 30 feet in diameter.
