Create an Indoor Fountain

Updated:2014-06-16 10:52:09
Creating your own indoor fountain gives you a custom water feature in your home, one that suits your decor. The peaceful sound of burbling water and the sculptural qualities of tabletop fountains enhance any room of the house. Because their design elements tend to conceal the pump mechanism, examining commercially made fountains doesn't yield much information. The University of Hawaii at Manoa's website points out that building a fountain can be a simple matter of combining a pump with a container and rocks.

Instructions as follows:


Firstly, select a watertight container such as a flower pot or basin that is at least 5 inches deep. Choose a material, shape and color that goes with the room--perhaps a black oblong serving dish for an office, an antique enamel pot for the kitchen, an Italian glass bowl for the bedroom or a raku pot for the living room.
Secondly, turn the fountain pump on if it has a power switch on the pump housing. If the fountain pump has a variable flow switch, set it to "S" for slow or set it in the middle for a medium flow. Place the small fountain pump--also called a submersible pump--in the basin.
Thirdly, rinse all of the stones for the granite fountain under running water.
Fourthly, place the largest stones around the pump, taking care to keep the water inlet slits at the sides of the pump clear.
Fifthly, place smaller and more decorative stones, geodes or crystals over the larger rocks.
Sixthly, arrange the stones so that the fountain pump's outlet hole stays clear.
