Hello All... I'm new to the site.
and going to break ground here shortly on a pool remodel.... I have an idea for a DIY water feature that I would like to add to my pool. It is considered a RAIN feature... have seen it done on DIY network with ponds etc, and seems like a very easy concept. It is mostly done with a submergable pump... line runs up to a long peice of PVC pipe which has staggered holes drilled into it, and once the water runs through it creates a rain effect like this video.
My question is about the pump to use. My idea was to have the pool contractor drill through the pool wall before the re-plaster have a pipe ran atleast 5 ft away from the pool next to my gazeebo... which from their a line will run up my gazeebo to the PVC rain feature mounted at the edge of my gazeebo (which hangs over my pool) and wallla... recirculating water feature at the flip of a switch, without having to run it through my energy sucking pool equipment.
what kind of pump should I use... that will produce the circulating idea that I have? It does not need to be high flow as this is not a sheer style waterfall... mainly has to run through line with the same consistancy as a hose on 1/2 power. also any other tips / tricks / feedback is appreciated.
