Another consideration is pump and water capacity. Many low-end fountains will not hold much water or have pumping capacity you are looking for. Mid-range to high-end fountains will have a better ability to move water and generally have a better appearance. Choose fountains that pump at 5 gallons per minute. These allow for a higher water capacity and a more visually pleasing stream of water.
Many mid-range fountains are made of poly resin or a stone and resin mix, making them very affordable and are resistant to weather. Along with their price and durability, these fountains are lighter than carved stone while still giving look of and feel of stone.
While these fountains are considerably heavier than plastic they are still easy to move and store. Most weigh between 40–70 pounds making them easy to handle.
Location of your fountain is also important. You will need electricity nearby to power your pump. Choose mid-range fountains equipped with a standard 120v connection. You can simply plug them into a standard outlet and go.
A fountain can be a visually attractive and relaxing addition to your home and garden. When you select correct fountain to fit your needs, you can add tranquility of water to you home or office.
