How to make a fountain with your own hands

How to make a fountain with your own hands The rustle of leaves, the singing of birds, the murmur of a stream – these phrases in any person are associated with a peaceful rest and relaxation. Perhaps that is why fountains, especially small, decorative, are so popular. Build such a miracle in your summer cottage and a daily session of psychological relief you are guaranteed. There is no special secret in how to make a fountain with your own hands. Eighty percent of its successful work is provided by the purchase pump, the remaining twenty are timely serviced. But on the appearance of the structure will have to work hard. If there is free space on the plot, the owners, of course, would prefer a large fountain or a cascading waterfall, but if there is no room for space, the fountain will be a great way out. Its equipment will require a circulation submersible pump, a plastic pallet and decorative stones. It is better to install such a fountain in the courtyard, closer to the power source. The plastic tray for the fountain is a small container, round or square, with a notch (sump) in the middle. The sump cover serves as a support for decorative elements. There is a ready-made pallet of a small size rather cheap, but if you wish, you can replace it with another suitable container.
Equip a decorative fountain
Arrangement of our street fountain begins with the depth of the pallet in the ground. To do this, you need to dig a hole with a diameter slightly larger than the container itself. The depth of the pallet edge should be flush or slightly below the surface of the earth. The tamped bottom of the excavation is covered with sand and a container is placed on it, filling it with water for stability. The space on the sides is covered with sand in half with the ground, gently tamping in such a way that the pan is exactly.
The pump is connected to the power supply network, while it is necessary to protect the circuit of the RCD. After the cord is connected to the outlet, a hose section is connected to the pump outlet and the pump is placed in a sump. After this, the container is filled with water and the system is checked for operability. For ease of outputting the hose to the surface, you can trim the sump cover. The final piece is a pebble scattered around or ornamental stones, which are laid in such a way as to close the electrical cord. Now the finished fountain looks like a natural key spouting out of the ground.
In the event that a simple form does not suit you, try to build a small cascade fountain. To do this, in addition to pebbles and stones, you will also need two ceramic pots. One pot is placed on the pallet vertically, and the other on top of the first, but horizontally. Through a hole in the bottom of the pots hold the hose and put it inside, mask suitable for the size of the pebbles. The pallet is also laid out with stones, here you can also add some artificial greenery.
Of course, the question of how to make a fountain in the country, each owner decides in his own way. Sometimes beautiful things, pleasing the eye, are obtained from very ordinary things, for example, from old automobile tires.
Do not forget to periodically pour water into the finished fountain, because in hot weather it evaporates pretty quickly.
The Chinese science of feng shui, in addition to the correct placement of furniture, involves the indispensable presence of water in the interior compositions. Therefore, a man-made home fountain will be a real decoration of an apartment or office. In addition to decorative, it also carries a functional load – it humidifies the air in the room. A description of how to make a home fountain is not much different from the previous one. Only the pump that we need will be smaller in size, and the choice of materials for decoration – more. If the house was full of souvenirs from seaside resorts: shells, pebbles, dried starfish, it’s time to put them into action. For the construction of the fountain will fit any capacity that does not pass water. A large glass or clay vase will be an excellent body that does not need additional disguise. A pump with a power of 40 W will be quite enough for an indoor fountain.
The tubes, through which the water jet is supplied, are adjusted to the desired length, connecting the segments in a telescopic way – from a larger diameter to a smaller one. The smaller the diameter, the higher the jet will be. The effect of a misty cloud will create a 30 watt diffuser.
In home fountains, in addition to decorative elements, water plants are often used, which remarkably complement models of any configuration.
Of course, the home fountain can be purchased and ready, the benefit of their choice in stores is quite wide, and the prices are encouraging. But the fountain, made by hand, in addition to the originality of the performance, is also distinguished by the fact that it was made with love. So, it will add a piece of comfort and warmth of your hands to your home. Do not forget about the maintenance of the device, which is a periodic cleaning, replacement of fluid and filter.How to make a fountain with your own hands The rustle of leaves, the singing of birds, the murmur of a stream – these phrases in any person are associated with a peaceful rest and relaxation.
