What are the 5 most popular materials used in residential fountains?

In addition to the pump, pipes, and fittings needed to move the water, a residential fountain or water feature is going to be made of something that is beautiful to the homeowner. This means there's a choice of waterproof materials used to create your own version of paradise.

Here are five of the most popular materials used in residential fountains:
• Stone - from a natural jumbled pile to formal elegance
• Cast stone/resin - this can look like almost anything!
• Copper in different finishes - if you want it to stay shiny, have it sealed. Otherwise it will develop the patina that many prefer.
• Ceramic - again, this can be tile or pottery or almost anything.
• Glass or acrylic - often a sheet that the water flows over, this becomes invisible unless an etching is part of the design.

There's a lot to choose from! How do you decide? Talk to an expert... because a fountain will be a feature of your outdoor living space for a long time.

Bill & Dorothy Law started an irrigation and pumping equipment business in 1970 that has become one of the top distributors in South Carolina. Since fountains are essentially a pump and pipes moving water continually, residential fountains are a subject W.P. Law, Inc. knows well.
