So I am proposing this completely on theory that I have yet to test. I have looked for DIY replicas of the fountains in front of Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. Most of what I found around the internet involved expensive equipment. I saw one person that estimated he spent $10,000.00 on top of approximately another untold thousands on parts he already had on hand. My proposal is a fairly inexpensive (poor mans) patio or garden pond display. I plan to attempt a build of this in the future. However if anyone has already done it / or does it before I do please comment on where to find your Instructable. I searched Instructables ahead of time and couldn't find anything.
Step 1: Planning
The first phase as always is the design phase. This is one you will do on your own. My design basically uses a premade pond liner in a raised box. Any variation would do as long as there is space underneath for your chosen air valves.
