Many people like install a fountain in their garden. You will get three benefits from having an outdoor fountain:
Make your garden lively;
Create white noise to cover the undesired sound;
Create a bird bath for small animals.
It’s so expensive to buy a fountain online. Today, we introduce a very easy way to DIY a simple outdoor fountain. You just need to prepare an empty container, a pipe and a submersible water pump. Please watch the video.
The key is the pipe need to be a little bit above water surface to get the best effects.
Keep the water flowing can effetively prevent breeding of mosquitoes etc.
Max lift height is one of the primary performance metrics of submersible water pump. It means the maximum height that the pump can pump the water up to. So, the water flow rate will be ZERO at max lift height.
Another primary performance metric is max flow rate, it usually measured by “gallon per hour” (GPH). It doesn’t mean that the flow rate always be this value. The water flow rate gradually decreases with height. So, it will be max flow rate when lift height is ZERO.
In short, Flow and lift height are inversely related. Knowing this helps to choose the right fountain water pump.
For building an indoor, garden or pond fountain, safety is very important. Most fountains are working for 24hrs, the reliability of submersible water pump should be the primary consideration. Safety mechanism will be the bonus.
Dry burning is one of the primary enemy of safety. It may cause the power supply short circuited and fire in worst case.
What is dry burning?
Submersible water pump must work under water. Once the water flows away, the pump may expose, if the pump is still working, then it will be dry buring.
