Make a Concrete Fountain

Updated:2014-05-20 11:07:44
Fountains add a soft effervescence to any indoor or outdoor space. Easily make an indoor or outdoor fountain from a concrete planter. Decorate the concrete planter with paint, stain or tiles before transforming it into a fountain. Add plants, colorful glass stones, river rock or broken tile to the inside of the fountain for added color and design. Look for concrete planters and the other supplies necessary to make a concrete fountain at local home and garden stores. Also find a selection of fountain pumps from online retailers.

Instructions as follows:


Firstly, turn the concrete planter upside down. Glue metal feet to each corner of the bottom of the planter with waterproof construction adhesive. If you're using a square tile concrete planter, four feet will work. If the planter is rectangular, place 1 foot in each corner and one in the center of each longest side. Find decorative metal feet or metal brackets at home improvement or hardware stores. The purpose of the feet is to elevate the concrete planter so that the electrical cord from the fountain pump can exit the bottom of the planter. Allow the adhesive to dry. Flip the planter upright.
Secondly, place the submersible fountain pump inside the concrete planter. Feed the electrical cord through the planter's drainage opening, beneath the planter and to the outlet.
Thirdly, seal the space around the electrical cord with silicone sealant. Allow the silicone to dry completely.
Fourthly, attach the garden stone fountain head to the spout on the submersible pump. Extend the fountain head to just beneath the rim of the planter.
