Making water fountains

Post by Bryan Wel » Thu, 02 Oct 1997 04:00:00



I'd like to make some of those bubbling water fountains that's basically
a clay pot, a pile of rocks, and a water pump that recirculates water
over the rocks.  Could anyone tell me what kind of water pumps they're
using, and where to buy them?

TIA,

I have been wanting to make on of these fountains my self. I've talked
to a few people and have been told all you need is a pump from the pet
store. I myself have seen pumps of different sizes at the home goods
store, HQ or Lowels. Might have to wait till spring for them to get the
supplies in again but check maybe you'll be able to find some one who
knows what you are talking about. All you do is get a pump that is
submergable, attach one end of  hose on pump and the other where you
want water to flow from, hide with rock or what ever, add water an plug
in. Sounds easy, now if I would just get started and make one. Maybe you
will, anyway good luck.

Hello,
     We have a koi pond in our living room, with a waterfall
and everything... we get our supplies from Lily Ponds water
gardens in Buckeystown, Md. 1(800)999-5459. They have a
catalog. They have pumps of all sizes, ranging from tiny little
dish garden pumps on up. They also have books on water
gardening, plants, how to's etc.
If you're ever in the Buckeystown area, thier store is a great
place to spend a day just walking around, miles of ponds full
of water lilies and fish to enjoy, plus lots of great
landscaping ideas. Take a picnic! Hope this helps...
Moon
