Get Creative Using the Same Fountain Pump

Get Creative Using the Same Fountain Pump

We love creativity and DIY projects, and smartpond is here to support all your water gardening ideas. This season we want to help show you the wide span of fountains that can be created from the use of the same fountain pump and tubing. We sent the 170-GPH Low Water Shut-off Fountain Pump and Flexible 1/2-in Vinyl Tubing to four DIY, home, and gardening bloggers to see where their creativity took them. Here are their designs.


Rustic & Refined: Galvanized Steel FountainRustic & Refined: Galvanized Steel Fountain

This fountain is without a doubt both rustic and refined. This is a great fountain for an outdoor or patio space and can really incorporate your favorite plants or some garden accessories you already have. This project did require some welding. It is great to utilize family or friends with specific skills to bring your fountain to life.
