Introduction: Simple Water Fountain
Build this simple water fountain in about 30 minutes
Step 1: Gather Supplies
Electric drill with 1" and 1/4" drill bits
Large garden pot (I recommend one that is wide and is at least 24" tall)
Lid that is slightly less circumference than the pot (I used an upside down garbage can lid)
water pump (these cost from $20-$40). it just needs to be strong enough to push water up a foot or 2)
Fountain pieces/waterfall features
decorations (dollar store fake flowers, walmart gardening section for lawn ornaments, etc...)
rocks or pebbles to complete the natural look
Step 2: Prepare Lid
Use 1" bit and electeic drill to drill hole in center of lid big enough for fountain to feed through.
Drill other holes to accommodate decorations.
Step 3: Water Pump
place pump at bottom of large pot and find a suitable location for the pot where power will be supplied to the pond.
Step 4: Fill With Water
Fill the pond at least halfway full of water, position lid so that fountain pieces will feed through it. connect fountain.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
Add decorations, rocks, etc until desired look is achieved. connect power and enjoy your simple water fountain that will impress all who see it!!!
