Taking interior design to a new level, pond fountains have an ornamental, aesthetic and practical value. While this type of fountain enhances the beauty in its surroundings wherever it’s installed, they also help to aerate the water, ensuring the proper exchange of gasses in the process.
Presenting a spectacular vision at night, especially when they are decorated with lights of different colors, these types of fountains mesmerize people with the display of water and the soothing sounds that come from it. The coordinated dance of the different fountain spouts installed in the pond captivates an audience like nothing else can. Bringing tranquility and a calmness to the surrounding environment, they act as stress busters and also help to cool the atmosphere down on a hot dry day.
For practical purposes the durability and reliability of these fountains play a big role in the selection of important pond features since they have a very important role to play as pond aerators. Increasing the circulation of water, they prevent stagnation thereby decreasing the formation and multiplication of algae and other microorganisms. This helps to maintain a healthy ecosystem in the ponds where they are set up, thereby enhancing the life of the aquatic animals living in it.
Floating on the water, pond fountains have to bear a lot of wear and tear primarily due to the corrosive action of the water as well as the changes in the atmosphere. They have an effective system for heat dispersion as well as have oil-lubricated and sealed components for this purpose.
Water fountains are generally placed on the surface of the water in ponds and lakes. This helps to keep them free from debris and also makes them relatively maintenance free. With many devices available to attach them to a certain part of the ground and bodies of water they are installed in, this type of fountain is an excellent mix of a practical and ornamental décor piece.
In fact many types of visual impacts can be created by using different types of fountain spouts. Hence it is possible to have single spouts as well as multiple spouts in one place. You can also have a whirlpool type of effect with the frothing water rising from the floor of the pond and coming out of the surface in a magical whoosh. Having a circle of sprinkling water either falling into a circle or out of it is just another innovation that beautifully adds to beautifully designed water fountains found in ponds and lakes.
