Dissapearing Fountain Questions
Hi, IÃ¯Â¿Â½m new to the Forum and have questions someone may be able to help with. IÃ¯Â¿Â½ve posted this over in the Garden Accouterments forum, But it occurred to me I might try here as well. We are landscaping our backyard and our intention is to add a disappearing fountain as one of the features. My intent is to make one out of a glazed ceramic urn/vase. The urn we have selected is about 40" high and 20" wide at itsÃ¯Â¿Â½ widest. My intention is to seal the inside with an epoxy sealer or a concrete sealer. IÃ¯Â¿Â½m also thinking is should fill the bottom 1/4 with pebbles to help with stability.
IÃ¯Â¿Â½d like to put this on a 36" - 48" reservoir. Is there a particular brand/model I should be looking at?
Some sites IÃ¯Â¿Â½ve looked at suggest a 950 GPH pump for this tall of a pump. One IÃ¯Â¿Â½ve been looking at is the Pondmaster 950 GPH Mag pump. Any thoughts comments on this are appreciated.
Should I be looking at additional filtration, other than comes with the pump. The immediate area around the fountain will be flagstone. The reservoir will be covered with black Mexican beach pebbles.
Is an auto-water level feature something I should be looking at as well, or do most people just monitor the level and add as needed.
Thanks in advance for any insights. Hopefully IÃ¯Â¿Â½m not over thinking or over engineering this.
