Can a disappearing fountain really contribute to your well-being? Fact is, yes. The answer is found in what makes people flock to lakes and oceans to get away: falling water. Whether it’s a waterfall or your morning shower, falling water releases ions that effect your wellbeing.
Any time you’re around concentrated negative ions that exceed positive ones, your body and mind will feel it. Your blood flow increases as does the oxygen content in your cells. That’s why it lowers blood pressure and has an overall calming effect.
You don’t need a big yard and a pond. A disappearing fountain from Nelson Water Gardens allows you to enjoy many of these benefits even in small, compact spaces.
Disappearing fountain basics
Traditional fountains require a reservoir of water which takes up considerable space. A disappearing fountain conceals the reservoir under ground. Water is pumped up through a pot or natural stone sculpture, bubbling over before returning where it started. You get the benefit of a water feature without a body of water.
Personalized Water Music
Choosing the pot of sculpture for your disappearing fountain allows you to personalize not only the look, but the performance of your water feature. A smooth pot vs a textured one will create a different volume of sound. A stone sculpture will also create a wholly different look, feel and sound.
Lighting your pot adds another dimension to your landscaping. Some stone sculptures can actually be lit from with in creating a unique look to your yard.
Keep your disappearing fountain stress free
Like most things in life, how your fountain begins is how it will be. Be sure to get a quality reservoir and pump. Choose a stone cover that’s suited to the purpose. Many “kit” fountains you can find online cut corners on reservoir and/or pump quality. Investing in quality components will help keep your new water features hassle-free for years to come.
