Decorative floating fountains are well known for creating peaceful, soothing, relaxing environments while adding beauty to your lake or pond. Fountains provide a degree of aeration, but are primarily recommended for aesthetics and keeping the water from becoming stagnant. With the seemingly unending number of fountain manufacturers and options to choose from, ABI has put together a short list of items to consider before purchasing a fountain.

When deciding to purchase a fountain consider…

  • Size and depth of the lake or pond
  • Type and availability of power
  • Distance of the power source to the fountain control panel & distance from the control panel to the fountain
  • Placement of the fountain in the water
    • Strategically place the fountain so it augments unique features and highlights. Generally, the center of most ponds but varies depending on the pond's size, layout, and if you are trying to cover up background noise from neighbors.
  • Pattern
    • Will you want to change patterns?
    • Vary patterns to add more visual interest if you have multiple fountains
    • Spray height
      • Select a spray height in proportion to the size of the lake or pond
      • Never exceed half the diameter of the pond; otherwise the water will spill out & waste water
      • Set different spray heights to add more visual interest if you have multiple fountains
  • Lighting options
    • The addition of lights can make a fountain mesmerizing at night
    • Can you add lights later? Will lights cost more if purchasing separately?
  • Installation time
  • If in cold climates - cost of seasonal removal & storage
  • Actual cost of running the unit
  • Maintenance
