Installing a Disappearing Fountain

Disappearing Fountains let you enjoy the sight and sound of water in your garden with minimal maintenance. To get started you need the basics:

  1. A favorite piece of pottery or statue
  2. Correctly sized reservoir – the larger the better
  3. Water pump
  4. Tubing, a valve and a few fittings
  5. A cinder block or two

    Select from a wide variety of styles and colors

Select the site and dig the hole for the reservoir

Place sand in the bottom of the hole so it is easier to level the unit

Test run; pottery may also need to be shimmed
