The Value Of Stainless Steel

Formal fountains are typically constructed with stainless steel spouts for great durability. These spouts also make the noise of the running water gentle and constant, making them ideally suited for use on block columns, outdoor spaces, and indoor installations.

Cost

Maintenance

These water features are a breeze to take care of. Unlike maintaining a water garden or koi pond, these are relatively low maintenance. The reservoir will need to be topped up on a biweekly basis to replace water lost through evaporation, but the consumer need not worry about any other maintenance tasks. A fill valve can even be installed to handle this chore automatically! These falls require no special preparations for winter, either. They need to be drained and refilled in the spring. Each waterfall’s basin has dual pump access (on the left or right) to suit the needs of the installation.

Fountains constructed in retaining walls can be placed in both above-grade and in-ground walls in a variety of different configurations.
