A Quality Pond Fountain

A fountain can be a beautiful addition to any pond. It can accentuate the overall landscape in and around your pond’s layout. This is important because it can keep your surface waters moving. The last thing you want is stagnant water that can attract mosquitoes or accumulate pond muck. So what features compose a quality and durable pond fountain? Let’s go over some important things for you to consider.

The 3 HP Classic Fountain OWS Series

Here at Outdoor Water Solutions, we carry a wide range of classic fountains according to your pond’s size and layout. The 3 HP Classic Fountain is one of our most popular fountains because of its durability and design. In fact, all of our classic fountain selections boast great features for any pond. The fountain comes with a submersible pump and motor with a 230v power output. In addition, the fountain is sturdy and will last you for many years because of its stainless-steel components, which are resistant to corrosion.

An Efficient Setup

The efficient setup for this particular model comes with the standard 150-foot power cord. However, you will be able to find lengths of up to 300 feet. The fountain is optimized for all ponds with improved and enhanced hydraulics, which increases performance and efficiency. This can keep the water flowing high above the fountain, helping to create the aeration flow on the water surface.

The Floatation Assembly

The stainless-steel frame of the flotation device helps keep your fountain going strong without any issues. It is composed of high-density polyethylene that also comes with full UV protection. The motor and pump are encased in a stainless-steel cage for durability and protection. You’ll have easy access through the encasement to perform regular maintenance on your pump and motor. This is essential to increase the lifespan of your fountain.

Lights and Nozzles

Although lights don’t come with the fountain alone, they can be purchased separately. If you decide to invest in lights for your fountain, the package comes with four low voltage LED lights, which are great for energy efficiency. They also come encased in a stainless-steel housing completed with tempered glass lenses. The setup protects the lights from debris and possible damage. When it comes to the nozzles, you’ll have an array of options, including the Orion, Sirius, Nebula, and Spectrum nozzles. The premium nozzles include the tornado nozzle and the tornado geyser. Sizes in heights can vary but range from 16 feet to 24 feet in height, depending on your choice.
