    Fountain heads/nozzles?

    I've been looking everywhere for more interesting fountain nozzles fort he kids. My PB put in three fountains, that are essentially a screw-in PVC pipe with a regular 1.5" return eyeball on the end.
    I was thinking there would be all sorts of nozzles one could screw in, but the the life of me I can't find them.

    Any ideas/pointers?

    Re: Fountain heads/nozzles?

    Thanks guys. That's not quite what I had in min but great options.

    The PB put a standard 1.5" eyeball return in the floor of the hot tub and kiddie pool. Then they put a PVC extension into the threaded return receptacle and put the eye-ball on the end of it. I can screw in any standard return nozzle into the end of this PVC. To me this would be as simple as deciding you want different hot-tub jets....but I can't seem to find any nozzle designed to be fountain heads.

    This is the nozzle I have now (similar) http://commercialpool.com/returnfitting1534eyeball.aspx

    Could you take something like this http://www.epoolshop.com/1-12pipeplugwitho-ring.aspx
    and drill small holes through it to make your fountain?

    Why reinvent the wheel, as msgtdan posted a few days ago? Put a reducer on the pipe and get you one of those fancy showerheads with multiple spray patterns.

    Either. Or drill your own holes in a pipe. Search Aerator or Cooler and look for the paper clip icon for more pictures.
